Myth: An addict must hit rock bottom, having lost everything & everyone before having a real chance at sobriety.
The idea of allowing a cherished loved one with a potentially fatal medical condition to “hit bottom” before intervening and offering options for treatment is completely irrational. The rock bottom myth propels the stigma associated with substance use disorder, and that would never be suggested in any other field. We are moving towards “Raising the bottom” and adopting an understanding that alcoholism and drug addiction is not a moral failing but a medical concern that should be addressed as soon as possible.
A lack of response to drug & alcohol addiction, in fact most addictions for that matter, leads to the increased likelihood of harmful physical and mental consequences including incarceration, institutions and death.
E V O L V E interventionists are trained professionals who facilitate and execute carefully crafted interventions on individuals whose lives have become unmanageable due to addiction & mental health issues. Confronting your loved one without the proper guidance & expertise is not advisable and could ultimately cause more harm than good.
The interventionist also acts as a guide for the participants, usually family and friends. He or she will educate, enlighten & strategize with everyone involved.
E V O L V E interventionists are available all throughout Canada as well as the U.S. and Europe.
