Pittsfield Alcohol and Drug Rehab Listings
The fight against substance abuse involves the entire community including government, law enforcement, schools officials, health officials and families. A gathering in Berkshire County, MA, in August 2013 brought together a variety of people who are concerned with preventing substance abuse. More than 40 people, including state representatives from North Adams and Pittsfield, MA, came together to strategize and coordinate their efforts in the fight against substance abuse. By working together, members of the Northern Berkshire Community Coalition hope to put the brakes on drug and alcohol abuse in their county.
Staging an Intervention
When a loved one struggles with substance abuse, family and friends want to do all they can to help them. In some situations, staging an intervention may be necessary. In an intervention, those close to the substance abuser confront the individual about their behavior and let them know how their actions affect each person. Sometimes a professional counselor is present during the intervention. An intervention requires some planning and should challenge the individual to take concrete steps toward change.
Beforehand, each person should list ways that the individual’s substance abuse affects them. One of the main components of the intervention should be a call to action. This should involve more than simply telling them that they need help; a specific treatment option should be presented to the individual. Also, consequences should be laid out in case the individual refuses to get treated.
