When you have a loved one who suffers from addiction, it’s difficult not to feel a sense of helplessness. Even when we know we’re not the reasons for their addictions, there’s a tendency to feel a sense of responsibility or obligation.

The truth is that a lapse of time would allow the individual to change his or her mind. With preparations in place, the individual can quickly begin treatment very soon after the intervention.
