For Families

Living with an addicted loved one is painful, frightening, and overwhelming. It’s one crisis after another. Intervention On Call helps families find hope, communicate effectively, identify and establish healthy boundaries, and inspire change.

You're Suffering and It's Not Your Fault

When someone you love is addicted to drugs or alcohol, your whole world turns upside down. Seeing your family member change completely, lose their way, and behave erratically is one of the most frightening experiences someone can have. You lose the ability to relax, to trust, to have faith that everything will work itself out. We’re here to tell you that you’re not alone. Right now, over 20 million Americans are struggling with addiction. That means that millions of families are dealing with the exact same pain that you are.

The consequences of substance abuse are serious. No matter what’s going on, rest assured that we’ve seen it all. We’ve helped clients whose family members are:

  • Lying
  • Stealing
  • Cheating
  • Manipulating
  • Making threats
  • Doctor shopping
  • Playing the victim
  • Becoming abusive
  • Breaking promises
  • Committing crimes
  • Forging prescriptions
  • Driving under the influence
  • Refusing to make a change
  • Relapsing over and over again
  • Guilt-tripping family members
  • Selling your belongings for drug money
  • Pitting family members against each other
  • Refusing to take responsibility for their actions
When Addiction Makes the Whole Family Sick

Substance abuse doesn’t just affect the person with an addiction. It devastates the entire family. Chronic stress, anxiety, and insomnia are all common among those with addicted loved ones. Many emotionally intelligent, caring family members will begin to take responsibility for the addicted person. If that’s you, you’re probably used to sleeping with your phone ringer on high just in case a devastating call comes through. You might make excuses for your loved one, too, or pay their bills. We know how you’re feeling because we’ve been there, too.

We have a few messages for families:

  • Their crisis isn’t your crisis.
  • Boundaries are incredibly important, but your loved one won’t like them. That’s a sign that you’re doing the right thing.
  • Take action in spite of how you feel. There is always a solution, but you may have to do some digging to find it.
  • When you enable your loved one, you are taking them further away from safety and recovery.
  • You can’t force anyone to change, but you can make addiction more unappealing by refusing to enable your loved one.
  • A lot of families are afraid of holding an intervention. With proper guidance, you can help your loved one to stop making horrible decisions and start recovering.

Addiction is a disease characterized by deception and denial, but it is possible to find recovery that lasts a lifetime. Our service helps families at every stage of the healing process.

On Enabling

I have never heard a sobriety story that sounded anything like this: “I was doing a bunch of dope and I woke up in my bed with my laundry done, plenty of food, money handed to me when I needed it… But I just decided to get sober that day.”

I’ve never, ever heard that and I probably never will.
