A Formal Conversation
Families can help themselves and their loved one in crisis by setting clear standards and expectations and then following through on their promise to support their loved one in making positive choices. Essentially, this is the goal of an intervention – a formal gathering of all who are concerned about the individual in the interest of helping them succeed in recovery.
An intervention can help to create boundaries that are often missing when one family member is living with addiction. Through these boundaries, everyone can begin to reclaim their lives again, and the person living with the disorder will be able to see clearly that the most positive route to change is through recovery.
