COCAINE ADDICTION INTERVENTION
Your Loved One Can Overcome Cocaine Addiction
Cocaine is unfortunately, one of the most difficult addictions to break free from. You may feel that you aren’t able to help them and that there is no solution. When dealing with someone who is addicted to cocaine, you may hear all types of different advice. Well meaning people will tell you to just let them hit bottom. Some will even say to give up on them. You may even feel that giving up is the best route to take and that’s understandable.
Dealing with the ups and downs of your loved one can be exhausting and draining. Constant turmoil becomes a way of life that you never knew you would have to live. The good news is that there is a solution. The solution is staging a cocaine intervention for your loved one.
Signs of Cocaine Addiction
If you suspect that your loved one is addicted to cocaine but aren’t exactly sure, these are the signs to look out for…
- Up and down moods
- Talking and Moving Fast
- Frequently Isolates
- Financial Trouble
Of course, there are other drugs that have these same effects, but cocaine use has a main difference from other drugs. The up and down periods will be shorter. For example, your loved one will be up and happy for 30 minutes to an hour and then experience a crash.
Don’t Wait to Intervene On Your Loved One’s Cocaine Addiction
There is a myth that is often told to families. The myth is that in order for treatment to be effective, your loved one has to want it. This myth is dangerous because it often leaves families under the impression that they must wait to hear their loved one express willingness to get help. Because of the nature of the disease of addiction, families often wait for a day that doesn’t come. And in the meantime, families continue to subject themselves to dealing with the chaos of their loved one’s addiction. We want you to know that your family doesn’t have to. Stepping in and intervening now is always the best option. Addiction will only get worse for those who do not see the error in their ways.
Contrary to what people also often say, your loved one does not have to reach rock bottom to be able to get better. Allowing someone to continue on in their addiction with the expectation that they will eventually reach rock bottom is dangerous. Often times that rock bottom is death.
Why Intervention is Effective for Cocaine Addiction
Intervention is effective because it brings the entire family together for a common goal. The goal is to get your loved one in treatment.
