Crisis Intervention Service: Counselors Donâ€™t Want To Fight With You
It happens people reach out to crisis intervention services for help and end up fighting with them. Dealing with someone who is an alcoholic or a drug user can be an emotional experience. You get sucked into them and their addiction. They can be charming, loving and so you start to buy into the person you wish they were and not the person that they are. This can cause you to do things you wouldnâ€™t normal do and behave in ways that you wouldnâ€™t normally behave.
Alcohol Intervention: Telling Your Brother He Has A Problem
At an alcohol intervention the hardest thing to do is look an addict in the face that you do not see as an addict but that you see as your brother, your best friend, your sister or your spouse and tell them you think they are a drunk. Even though deep down they know they have a problem hearing you tell them that you think they are a drunk can be incredibly hurtful to them. They are living in denial and you are calling them out on their behavior. Know that you are doing it out of love and one day theyâ€™ll forgive you and thank you for saving their life.
Drug Addiction Intervention: When You Think Youâ€™re Fine
You are not the first addict to be at a drug addiction intervention of a friend and think that while they are out of control with their drug problem that youâ€™re fine. It happens all time. People are sitting there telling their friend they have a problem and thinking this is all too real. They hear one family member after the other go through a list of the behavior the addict has displayed while on drugs and alcohol and they know that they are just as guilty of all the things listed as that addict. They think theyâ€™re fooling everyone but theyâ€™re really only fooling themselves.
