When you sense that the situation is spiraling out of control, the initial action to take is to engage in a conversation with the individual. There are effective ways to approach the situation.
You will see if they recognize a problem or are in total denial. A person who sees a problem will openly discuss it with you. They will find solutions for help to seek counselling or assistance. They realize they must act before losing everything. In this instance, it would be as far as you go with the conversation.
However, someone who refuses to acknowledge the problem will require more work. When you’ve been patient and attempted several “talks,” and they still deny, it’s time for an intervention. A family can gather and plan out an intervention. If you feel uneasy about it, a professional interventionist would be your next step.
No matter which way you go, choosing a facility beforehand is important. Because once the person says, “Okay, I’m ready to go,” you have to have a center set up. The person will change their mind very quickly.

When a serious drug issue plagues families, the situation can become profoundly unsettling. What was once a relatively content and tranquil life can transform into a constant state of anxiety and sleepless nights. This brings the importance of seeking assistance and support for yourself. Al-Anon and Na-Anon Groups exist to provide help to families grappling with a loved one’s addiction. You can explore their website to locate meetings in Cambridge. (Al-Anon, Nar-Anon)
Cambridge addiction treatment services in the public sector will have waiting lists. Unfortunately, one can not do much to quicken admission. Sometimes, people can fast-track admission with a physician’s or an addiction counsellor’s referral. Subsidized centres are a good choice when a person can hold off for a few weeks without putting their life and other people’s lives in danger.
But before you make a choice, give us a call. There are a lot of misconceptions about private facilities. Some programs are much less than a small compact car with terrific staff who care. Some insurance can cover the cost. It is worth exploring this option.
