Helping someone struggling with addiction is never a straightforward process. One of the many initial hurdles facing family members is the prospect of motivating their loved one to seek out professional treatment. The idea of uprooting one’s life, no matter how terrible it may be at the time, is an intensely frightening proposal for those suffering in active addiction.
Together We Can works with certified interventionists to assist the family members of a suffering loved one. The emotional turmoil and volatile nature of these situations demands the presence of a dedicated professional in order to properly convey a unified, powerful message.
We encourage family members to use the services of a professional interventionist to initiate appropriate changes in the life of someone struggling with substance abuse.
