Intervention For Families

Family support for a substance use disorder is important for everyone. An intervention gets the entire family involved and sets up a treatment plan for recovery and provides family support. Within that plan, everyone is accountable for their own actions in relation to the disorder and enabling it.

An intervention allows the entire family to communicate and understand the full effects that enabling the disorder is having on everyone. A family intervention is a good place to start when approaching a family member with a substance use disorder.
