Intervention is a deliberate process by which change is introduced into a difficult situation in a family, at work, or a person’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. People suffering from substance use disorder often deny that they have a problem and cannot face that their using is causing problems all around them. An intervention may be necessary if someone in your life is struggling with untreated substance use disorder and you are looking for a safe, effective way to help them.
