Alcohol Intervention Now
Each year almost three million people worldwide die from alcohol-related circumstances. In order to prevent a person you love from becoming a tragic statistic, it’s crucial to consider alcohol intervention now. The longer you wait to get your loved one the help they need for their alcohol abuse, the greater the risk they will develop severe health problems, such as liver failure, weight gain, depression, anxiety and certain types of cancer. In addition to the physical and mental dangers of alcoholism, it’s only a matter of time before an alcoholic gets behind the wheel of a car, putting their life and the lives of others in extreme jeopardy. When dealing with an alcoholic, it is important to consider that their judgment is impaired. Don’t sit by waiting for your loved one to hurt themselves or others, you can be proactive in saving their life and preventing unspeakable damage.
Determining the Need for Alcohol Intervention
Unlike drug addiction, alcoholism can be difficult to detect and is usually demonstrated through behavior. The widespread acceptance of drinking as a social activity has blurred the lines between occasionally drinking too much and a serious alcohol problem. Quick identification is critical in getting your loved one the help they need. You may need to consider alcohol intervention now, if your loved one:
- Exhibits denial regarding their ability to control their drinking
- Falls behind in professional, academic or familial obligations because of their drinking
- Exhibits constant preoccupation with drinking
- Drinks and drives
- Lies to others about their drinking
- Seems hostile, obstinate or even aggressive about their drinking
- Is experiencing physical health complications due to drinking
These symptoms are clear signs of alcohol abuse and a direct pathway to addiction. If your loved one is displaying one or more of these behaviors, take action and start intervening now before dependency forms and it becomes harder for them to stop.
A Loved One’s Alcoholism is Everybody’s Problem
Whether or not it’s legal, drinking is a common activity among all age groups. It affects children, spouses, parents, friends and family. Because drinking is so common, it’s often difficult for a person to determine when their loved one has a problem. A child might not feel it’s their place to interfere in their alcoholic parents’ lives; a wife might be inclined to let her husband’s drinking problem slide to avoid an argument, etc. These are real problems that very often get in the way of alcoholics getting the help they need. If you’re considering organizing an alcohol intervention now, chances are your loved one has already broken your trust or severely compromised your relationship. The longer you wait to help, the less of a relationship there will be to protect.
Ease Their Pain and Yours with Alcohol Intervention Now
Intervention benefits family, friends and co-workers as much as alcoholics, themselves. By assessing the family dynamic, we can help put an end to toxic interactions with addicted loved ones. Alcohol intervention can help break the cycle of enabling and denial. Sometimes well-intentioned family members unknowingly contribute to the problem. They don’t recognize how their own behavior of enabling could allow their loved one’s drinking problem to potentially go untreated. Intervention Now will help restore balance to your life, as well as your loved ones.
