Many families in Connecticut believe intervention may not be possible, and the addiction has gone too far. Newman Interventions works with families regularly who seem stuck in this situation. Drug and alcohol addiction become a never-ending cycle of relapse, consequences, and refusing help. When you hire a professional interventionist to come to Connecticut, you are taking control and ending this pattern. The entire intervention is planned, and each person taking part is instrumental in helping the addict get help.
A certified interventionist will help the family mitigate the barriers that arise during the intervention. Each intervention is different from the next, and sometimes there are unique problems such as a medical situation. Drug and alcohol abuse takes a huge toll on an addict physically. It can often be to the point where they need medical attention and must go to the hospital. If the person ends up in the hospital because of an overdose, the interventionist will still go to the hospital and help the addict understand the importance of drug rehab.
Family Intervention Should Be Immediate
Overdose is often the one event that does open an addict’s eyes to treatment. However, having a professional interventionist there will ensure they fully understand the gravity of their addiction. It is a scary time when an addict overdoses on drugs, and it is not easy for a family to go through this. Drug addiction becomes worse without help, and that first call you make to Newman Interventions is the first step to take. A certified interventionist will help you line up a treatment program, perform the intervention, and ensure the addict arrives in treatment safely. It is often a tight window when an addict agrees to get help, and everything happens quickly. Yet this is why a professional interventionist is there.
Substance Abuse Trends in Connecticut
According to the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, opioid-related treatment admissions declined in 2018, and overdose deaths also declined during 2018. However, fentanyl was involved in close to 70% of all opioid-related overdose deaths. Opioids account for 41% of all substance use treatment admissions, while alcohol is reported to be the primary drug involved in 34% of treatment admissions.
Newman Interventions is a nationwide service, and regardless of where you are in Connecticut, an interventionist will travel to you. Making that choice to do an intervention is taking control of the problem. The family is deciding they will no longer watch their loved one be destroyed by drugs or alcohol. Any addiction can be beaten; it just takes someone from the outside looking in to keep everyone moving forward.
