Many people who are addicted to alcohol or drugs do not think they have a problem or know that they do and but do not know how to get help.
If this is the case with your loved one, you may want to consider holding an intervention which is an attempt to get someone to seek help.
People struggling with addictions are often unable to understand how their behaviors affect themselves or the people around them. They may deny that they have problems or be unwilling to seek treatment. It is critical not to wait for addicts to seek help on their own, those struggling with addiction often cannot see the extent of their serious and life-threatening problems.
Drug intervention programs can help and work to get him or her into a treatment program before things get really bad. Michael DeLeon is a Certified Intervention Professional (CIP) who has worked with addicts from all over the country and of all ages.

Addiction and Recovery
Many people do not understand why or how other people develop addictions. It is often mistakenly assumed that they lack moral principles or willpower and could stop the addiction simply by choosing to change their behavior.
In reality, addiction is a chronic, often relapsing brain disease that causes compulsive drug seeking and use, despite harmful consequences to the addicted individual and to those around him or her. Quitting takes more than good intentions or a strong will.
Similar to other chronic, relapsing diseases, drug and alcohol addiction can be managed successfully although it is not uncommon for a person to relapse and begin abusing again. Relapse, however, does not signal treatment failure—rather, it indicates that treatment should be reinstated or adjusted or that an alternative treatment is needed to help the individual regain control and recover.
While symptoms and treatment vary from each person, what’s similar are the signs that someone may be struggling with addiction. Not every individual will show all of the signs below, but be aware if your loved one is showing one or a combination of the following:
- Being secretive or evasive.
- Lying frequently.
- Mood swings.
- Major changes in sleep of energy levels.
- Fluctuations in weight.
- Attitude and appearance changes.
- Loss of interest in things they used to enjoy.
- Failing to meet obligations.
- Loss of memory.
