We treat alcoholism and drug addiction as an illness and promote abstinence as essential for long-lasting recovery. Our aim is to help patients recover through an intensive, personalized program that combines medical treatment, 12 Step and other psychiatric therapies and complementary therapies.
Drug and alcohol interventions: Who needs them?
For many, convincing a loved one to enter substance abuse treatment is no easy feat. If you’re reading this and wondering if your loved one needs a drug and alcohol intervention, the chances are, he or she most likely does.
Drug and alcohol interventions are often a last ditch effort by loved ones to get an addict into drug and alcohol treatment. Typically, it’s become obvious that an addict’s substance abuse is affecting not only themselves but also those around them. They may show poor performance in work or school, and they may be shirking other responsibilities as well. Many addicts who need interventions may also be in financial or legal trouble.
