Anyone who has been close to a long-term, serious alcoholic/addict knows that getting someone to quit is tough. If you approach a loved one before they truly want help, you must have the right strategy. Denial is a powerful force, and alcoholism keeps a tight physical and mental grasp on its habitual users. The situation worsens when tension arises in the family or the one suffering becomes defensive. In this case, getting someone to quit drugs or alcohol requires an intervention, and the best way to do this is to work with a seasoned interventionist, such like the many we provide.
