For families and friends who want to help a loved one who is using and abusing drugs, an intervention might be the way to go. Depending on their age, and level of understanding, in many ways an intervention is a great way to show someone you care about them, you want to help them, and that you are there for them, if they need assistance in getting past the abuse problem that they are dealing with. Additionally, by having a professional interventionist, the intervention is going to be something that is worth while, and will get all people who are involved talking and communicating, in order to try and deal with the abuse problem, the drugs or alcohol, and any other things that the user might be addicted to. So, rather than try and send them off to rehab, you may first want to consider an intervention, and having people around who want to help them.

If you do choose this setting, you have to make sure that the intervention is inviting; you do not want a hostile environment, and you do not want the person to feel as if you are judging them, otherwise they are going to be opposed to it. Instead, you have to make the intervention something that is welcoming, and where everyone is in a good mood; this is going to make the user more willing to come in, listen to what people have to say, and listen to the advice that is being given at the intervention, by those who want to help them, and want them to get past their addiction. The more welcoming it is, and the less hostile things are, the easier it is going to be to get them on board, to get them to listen to the interventionist, and to get the user to listen and try to accept the help that is being offered to them at the intervention.

No matter what the drugs are, if addiction has gotten past a point of no return, the intervention is one of the best ways to start the rehab process. Showing the user that family and friends are around, and truly want to help (and are not judging them), are some of the things that will get the user to possibly accept the help, and to want to come in to the intervention when they are trying to get past the addiction that they are dealing with. So, making sure you do things right, and make the environment welcoming, is possibly one of the most important factors to consider when you do choose the path of first going through an intervention, as opposed to shipping them off to rehab.

Although rehab may be necessary down the road, by trying an intervention first, you will show the user you are there to help. Knowing family and friends are around, is possibly the main thing that is needed, to get them to admit to having a problem, and later accepting the help that is being offered.
