Interventions For Drug Involved Young Adults

By Intervention

Staging interventions for drug involved young adults saves lives. An intervention is a rescue mission for someone you care about, who has put themselves in danger of slipping away by abusing substances. Families and people who care about those unfortunate souls who have descended into drug addiction know that loving a drug addict means putting up with a lot of selfish behavior. Young adults turn to drugs for a variety of reasons, but they allow themselves to become addicted to them purely because they put their own cares above the concerns of the people who love them. Drug involved young adults are usually afraid of what might happen to the fragile hold they have on their lives if they allow anything to change, a behavior which could hold them forever tied to their drugs. Familes and those whose loved ones have allowed drugs to take over their lives are typically much more understanding than onlookers would believe the drug addict deserves. This is because in order to love a drug addict, you must also have looked down into that dark place and understood how they got there. They know that beneath the disease the person they first got to know, first came to love, is waiting to be uncovered. Beartooth Mt. Ascent (1-307-645-3381) is a transitional living facility for troubled young men.

Interventions For Drug Involved Young Adults can be a tumultous painful event, but they are necessary to have any hope of saving a drug addict's life. Young adults will typically show resistance at the slightest hint that someone is planning to intervene on their path. This is because their judgement is clouded by a selfish desire they do not even own. The desire belongs to the addiction, and the addiction is afraid of change. So your young adult will fight, but you must fight harder. He has only the strength of a drug addict, whereas you have the strength of your convictions, fueled by your love and compassion.

Beartooth Mt. Ascent is a place for troubled young adults to find vast reserves of purpose they never knew they had. The program uses work as treatment and encourages group togetherness through peer teaching, encourages its young men to have faith and to surrender their needs for the good of the group. Ultimately, these young adults are asked to stop surrending to the easiest outcome of all, failure, and to choose to grow and move on to brighter new vistas of life.
