If someone you care about is telling you no, I won’t go to treatment, I don’t need help, the problem isn’t that bad – or acknowledges they need help, but doesn’t follow up on getting it – you are in the right place. Without competent assistance, dealing with destructive behaviors can leave families discouraged or convinced that nothing can be done.
Fortunately, these are the exact types of difficulties we are trained to deal with when encountering alcohol abuse, drug addiction, mental health disorders and self-destructive behaviors. In fact, every family seeking our assistance has told us they were met with either resistance, excuses, denial or minimization when they approached their loved one with getting help. Meanwhile, more than 98% of these same families were later told by their loved one, “okay, I’m willing to go to treatment” after allowing us to facilitate their intervention.
So if you are unable to convince someone you care about – or feel like you are losing them, please take a moment to speak with an intervention counselor today at: 800-980-3927

Drinking too much can weaken your immune system, making your body a much easier target for disease. Chronic drinkers are more liable to contract diseases like pneumonia and tuberculosis than people who do not drink too much.
