Our Trained Counselors Can Help...
As with most addictions, it's sometimes very difficult for those addicted to alcohol to actually see that they have a problem. Sometimes, alcoholics need to be told that alcohol is taking over their lives. It is only once they have been told that they have problem that they can then confront the problem and seek treatment by going into rehab or joining an appropriate group.
The step of confronting an alcoholic is called intervention, and it is intended to "intervene" with their alcoholism and help them go into rehab, or otherwise encourage them to seek treatment. However, an alcohol intervention must be planned correctly in order for it to work effectively. If an intervention is not correctly implemented, the person being confronted may misinterpret the intentions in a negative manner, which can make the alcoholic tendencies even worse.
