When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.
Denial is one of the characteristics of addiction. While in the grips of the drug, addicts may not even realize how severe their problem is and attempt to rationalize or make excuses for their use. Still under the influence of drugs, they are unable to see things clearly and understand what their addiction is doing to their life. While you cannot force someone to get or stay sober, if your loved refuses to attend treatment or denies that there is a problem, there are steps you can take to get them the help that they need. Some individuals need to detox and take a sober look at their life before they realize the severity of their situation.
Professional Christian drug interventionists are experienced and knowledgeable addictions professionals that work with families to get their loved ones into treatment. Individuals in active addiction are not themselves. Extreme changes in behavior—including irrational and even violent outbursts—often occur in people struggling with substance abuse issues.
Another benefit of having a trained Christian drug interventionist lead you intervention is that he/she can help you prepare what you want to say to your family member. Addiction in the family effects not just the user but the entire family. Often the focus is entirely on the addict, the “sick” one, without realizing that it is the whole family that needs help. An interventionist can help you express your feelings to your loved one and set boundaries, regardless of whether they decide to go into treatment or not. An interventionist can also help you find the best treatment for your loved one and make the necessary arrangements prior to the intervention.
