Why seek professional intervention?
Despite negative consequences, the majority of substance abusers don't realize they have a problem until family, a spouse, close friend, or an employer intervenes. The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence reports a higher than 90% success rate getting the addicted individual into treatment when using a trained professional. Don't wait until your loved one hits rock bottom. The sooner the problem is identified and addressed, the better the chances for a successful recovery.
What is addiction?
Addiction is a treatable disease like other chronic illnesses ie. diabetes, high blood pressure. As a result of chronic drug use brain chemistry is changed, which reinforces addictive behaviors despite serious life threatening consequences. The cycle of addiction continues to escalate until some type of intervention occurs.

The Cycle of Addiction
Addiction develops over time. It begins with casual use, progressing to chronic use, and ends with addiction. Guilt, depression, anxiety, compulsion to use, withdrawal and tolerance are part of the cycle of addiction. Blaming others, lying, stealing and manipulation, are some of the behaviors associated with addiction. Willpower alone won't stop the behaviors or drug use. In order to break the cycle, professional help is needed.
