You may have noticed recently that a loved one is acting a little different from normal. Maybe they are more withdrawn, or they sleep a lot. On the other hand, maybe they have gone into almost a manic state, where they are always going. Either way, you may be suspecting that they are dealing with a drug addiction, and you have decided that you need to step in.
At this point, it can be difficult to know exactly when to step in, and how much to do. In general, it is best to intervene as soon as you notice a problem. At first, your loved one may deny that there is a problem, or even get upset. They may surprise you and open up, admitting that they do have a problem. Either way, making it known, and letting them know that you love them and support them, and want to try to help them, is extremely important at this point.
You may find that your loved one needs to be admitted to a detox facility. This is a hard thing to accept for many people, but it is something that can be very beneficial, not only for the person that is dealing with the addiction, but also for the people around them.
Though there are many different types of detox facilities in the country, you will find that you want to do your research on them before you make a decision on one. Since they are so different, there may be some that do not fit the person that needs the intervention. With everything from a more clinical detox center in a hospital to a new age spin on getting drug free, there are so many options that you may feel a little overwhelmed. One suggestion is to contact your insurance company, or the insurance company of the loved one dealing with the addiction, and find out if they cover detox treatment.
