An intervention happens when drug addicts or alcoholics can't seem to grasp the significance of their addictions, so a group of friends and/or family members confront the addict to bring the issue to light. The recovering addict is then taken to drug or alcohol detox or rehab for treatment. Interventionists may also recommend interventions for those at-risk of becoming an addict, so they may find a way to stop abusing substances before dependencies control their lives. Many people struggle with substance abuse and addiction in New York City, NY, and help is locally available.
