Drug Intervention FAQs
How do you get someone to accept help when they say they are not ready for rehab or don’t want to go?
Most addicts know they need to do something about their drug or alcohol abuse, but two major factors cause them to continue their abuse:
- Drugs and alcohol abuse weakens a person’s mental and emotional strength. They feel emotionally drained and unwilling to experience any more pain or discomforts.
- And drugs essentially act as emotional and physical painkillers. They take away the discomfort and help them escape reality. But they also eat away their natural ability to feel normal and face reality.
Essentially, There is more incentive and more pressure imposed on the abuser to stay on drugs than there is to get off of drugs.
Your loved one is likely to continue abusing drugs until life, society or family puts more pressure on them to get off of drugs. That pressure can come in the form of a prison sentence, an overdose, or an effective intervention carried out by family and friends.
The purpose of an intervention is essentially to create a safe “rock bottom” which pressures your loved one to make the right decision. When done well, your loved one will feel the love of his or her family and come to the realization that he or she can no longer continue in their destructive path.
There is a science behind interventions, and they must be carried out properly and professionally or they can backfire.
If your loved one refuses help NOW, the worst thing you can do is wait until he or she is ready. She probably won’t be ready until a serious event occurs, at which point it may be too late.
If they refuse help now, then consider hiring a professional interventionist, which is your best assurance to getting your loved one to rehab.

"I can’t stop helping her, and I know I’m enabling her addiction, but I don’t want her to die, what do I do?"
A pro interventionist is first a family therapist and knows how to council you through the addiction that runs through the family.
Each day they continue to abuse drugs or alcohol, they put their health, their future and their lives in danger.
Drug abusers constantly experience physical and emotional pressure to abuse drugs and alcohol. They’ll continue to succumb to this pressure to abuse drugs for as long as they feel they can get away with it. They often seek help only after they have hit a rock bottom.
The idea is to create a safe rock bottom, and that is the purpose of an intervention. There is a science to carrying out a successful intervention and we recommend you hire an interventionist if your loved is refusing to seek help now.
