So what exactly is an intervention? The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence defines it as educational process directed by a professional that results in a face to face meeting comprised of friends and family, sometimes an employer, with the person who has trouble with drugs or alcohol. What the intervention does is helps your loved one make the connection between their substance abuse and the problems in their life. Ultimately, the goal of an intervention is for them to accept help. An intervention is critically important because it allows everyone the opportunity to come together to share support and information.
