Heroin Intervention in Washington
It is never easy to realize your loved one is an addict, especially when his drug of choice is heroin, one of the most addictive and deadly drugs around. Unfortunately, in the past decade there has been a truly alarming upward trend of heroin use and heroin addiction leading to overdose deaths in the United States. In a report put out by the University of Washington’s Alcohol & Drug Abuse Institute (ADAI), Washington is just one of many states experiencing a huge jump in heroin use.
The reason for this jump is linked to the number of people abusing prescription narcotics that move on to heroin for a cheaper, more easily accessible high. Other sources cite the popularity of heroin rising in part due to changes to the drug itself that have made it easier for users to snort or smoke instead of having to use needles to inject it. (NIH)
An intervention is never easy for anyone involved. The interventionists who work helping families week after week know just how intensely family and friends are feeling about their loved one’s drug use. This is why we make sure that from beginning to end you have the access to all of the answers you might need before making a decision to move forward.
When your questions are answered and you are ready to begin the process of setting up an intervention for your loved one, the interventionist will listen closely and make the necessary decisions about which intervention model to proceed with. Although many people mistakenly think the number one goal of an intervention is to get your loved one into rehab, the truth is we want more than that.
Working with family and friends over a 2 to 3 day period our goal will be to help your loved one come to genuinely desire to break the chains of the addiction cycle and being working towards lifelong recovery. It is through a genuine need to change his life that your loved one will have the best chance making the changes he needs to. We seek to empower and guide so that everyone involved in the process can begin the healing that is needed to enjoy life again.
