A certain level of decriminalization of marijuana use and possession was scheduled for discussion at the Indiana General Assembly. A number of proposed bills were on the table as legislators considered options of changing or eliminating punishment depending upon the offense.
How does this affect families in Terre Haute, Indiana? It can mean a number of different things depending upon whether or not someone in the family is living with an active marijuana dependence. Though it is not helpful to imprison someone who is addicted to drugs or alcohol, legal intervention can often trigger the realization that drug rehab is necessary. For an individual in denial, the arrest and court process can serve as a wakeup call. Depending upon the decision of the state government, Terre Haute families may need to get more proactive about staging interventions for their addicted loved ones in order to get them the help they need to heal.
Getting Your Loved One Into Marijuana Rehab
How do you get your addicted family member into treatment when they refuse to admit that they have a problem with drugs? Sometimes you can make use of disruptive events like accidents, arrest or losses caused by addiction (e.g., job loss, expulsion, divorce, etc.) to emphasize the need for rehab. But if that is impossible or it doesn’t work, another good choice is to stage a formal intervention.
