How do you determine it is an addiction to tranquilizers?
A tranquilizer addiction may be difficult to notice at first, and the family may see some changes physically and behaviorally. When you start to notice drastic mood swings, memory lapses, neglect of family or social responsibilities, and paranoia, these are signs of addiction. Newman Interventions can help you determine what type of addiction it may be. If you know they are abusing tranquilizers, it is important to organize an intervention quickly. It is not uncommon for families to attempt to perform intervention without the help of a certified interventionist. This does not always work out well, because there are often family members who enable the addict.
During the family education day, we will help break down the barriers of enabling. This is a common problem with prescription-drug addiction, because some family members may feel they need the drugs for a legitimate medical condition. It is never too late to organize an intervention, and Newman Interventions can travel to any part of the nation. If you have questions about intervention, drug addiction, or want to know how to help an addict, you should call Newman Interventions right away.
