Crack Interventions in Indiana
Crack Intervention Timing is Key
Indiana is in the top 17 states that has the highest mortality rate associated with overdoses. Crack, Prescriptions and Heroin are estimated to quadruple in the next couple of years.
Crack cocaine is one of the most addicting drugs. It gives the user a feeling of power. They feel like they can do anything. Once the buzz is gone, they crash, become depressed and have an incredible urge to get back to the feeling of being high. The up and down cycle continues until they just want to be high on crank. This presents one of the biggest challenges to staging a successful intervention that will lead to admission and recovery. In order to have a chance of success, your loved one needs to not be high.
Two Typical Types of Crack Users
There are two types of crack addicts. One uses occasionally, maybe just on the weekends, or for special occasions. The other type is a daily user, one who cannot go even one day without it. Depending on the type of user your loved one is there are tools available to help them overcome and recover from their addiction. Interventions with a crack user are very unpredictable. The drug itself, depending on what it is cut with, can cause wide mood swings. We will always choose the methods that are proven effective and have the best chance of convincing them that they cannot continue their destructive behavior.
For the binge crack user, the intervention is timed for approximately a week after a binge. This insures that your loved one is sober and coherent enough to understand that they need help kicking their habit. We have the tools and skills to help your loved one see just what their addiction is doing to them and the ones they care about. Only when they are sober can they comprehend the scope of their behavior. Once they get the picture of what their lives have become, most willingly move into treatment.
A daily crack user is completely different. It is more difficult to stage the intervention. While they are high, it may be impossible to convince them that they need help. The daily user may be showing signs of paranoia and possibly even insanity. Their moods are up and down making it difficult to talk to them about their drug use. This can cause an intervention to take an often violent turn. A trained interventionist will keep the session from getting out of control, and be prepared if it does.
No matter what stage your loved one is in with their addiction, we will help you understand all that is necessary to help get them into recovery.

Are you enabling?
Is your loved one an addict and you do not know how to help? Or when you bring up getting help they tell you "Yes, I have a problem I just cannot stop everything to get help, let me get some things in order." This is enabling. They are giving you hope and you wait and wait. This can go on for years.
Only are you not helping them but the physical and mental stress you are putting on yourself is also dangerous.
Interventions do help the person address that his/her addiction is causing problems, however this is the easy part. The hardest part is to teach the family about addiction and how come together. This usually helps with a longer lasting results. Once a person comes home from rehab Then What?. The family went back to their routine and so will the addict. But if the family changes so will the addict.
