Have you heard these words many times before?
“Today I’ll stop, I promise.”
“This is my last drink.”
“I don’t have a problem!”
“I’m in control of it.”
“I know what I’m doing.”
“Leave me alone I’m fine!”
Drink by drink, your loved one is slipping away . . . but you have the power to bring them back before it’s too late!
Many people suffering from alcohol abuse are convinced that they have the power to stop… if they want to. And they persuade you to think the same. But unfortunately, not only are they harboring delusional thoughts regarding their capabilities, if they do actually attempt self- detoxification, it can have severe consequences: seizure, heart failure, and death.
Professional alcohol intervention is not a luxury. You may view your loved one as a person who just can’t control their drinking habit. But in reality, they are a loaded gun, ready to go off at any point in time. Alcoholics commit drunk driving, rape, child abuse, murder and suicide. Alcoholics can kill people: family members, friends and themselves. Professional alcohol intervention is necessary to delicately raise awareness in the mind of the alcoholic that he has a problem, one that is too overwhelming for them to control, and that they need to accept medical help.
Many family members attempt to perform alcohol intervention themselves, but without the key knowledge and proper approach, they do more harm than good. These well-intentioned meetings often result in violence and irreparable damage to the chances of ever helping their loved ones to recover.
A professional alcohol intervention is always implemented in a loving, caring, and non-judgmental manner, gently coaxing the alcoholic along the path towards acknowledgment of the problem and agreement to rehabilitation. Your friend is drinking themself into the grave, and they may take many others with them. This isn’t the time to look away. This isn’t the time to remain uninvolved. This isn’t the time to accept false hopes and empty promises for a better tomorrow.
