An intervention is a process where the family attempts to persuade someone with a drug problem to seek out help. The most effective interventions are structured and solution-oriented. Though they aim to confront the person abusing drugs, it’s important that the intervention remain non-judgmental. The family needs to prepare statements ahead of time and make sure that they stick to the script during the day of the intervention. If the intervention becomes a shouting match or goes off script too much, it could make the person go further into the depths of addiction.
