An intervention for drug addiction is required when either a substance abuse or the family surrounding them is at a breaking point due to the addiction. Usually, the family has begun to realize that their loved one cannot or will not stop using drugs on their own, and that their loved one may not have enough perception of a problem or simply can’t accept just how bad their problem has become.
This feeling of helplessness by the family and ongoing manipulation and denial by the addict results in major damage to the family system, often perpetuating and enhancing the drug addiction problem. These same feelings and damage is the main reason by a family member addicted to drugs will require some form of intervention in order to come to terms with the need for change.
