From the very first dose, an opiate tolerance begins and higher amounts will continue to become necessary to produce the desired effects. Unfortunately, opiate dependence often leads to addiction, IV use, and the use of heroin. No one wants to see their loved ones go through this self-destruction and numerous discussions or appeals to reason rarely produce any changes.
Although no one can predict how someone will react to an intervention, when nothing else works, an intervention may be the only way to help get your loved one into opiate rehab that will possibly save their life.

Opiate addictions destroy relationships and while you may have become distanced from the opiate abuser, chances are that deep inside, they are hurting too. Over time, opiate users tend to change their lifestyles to where the ability to continue using comes before anything else, including their loved ones, their jobs, their freedom, and their lives.
The intervention can help your loved one into opiate rehab by allowing you to show the support you are willing to give to help them make the necessary changes in their life. They will more likely listen to you if they know that the intervention has been planned with true concerns for their welfare and not just for another confrontation.
It takes finesse and the guidance of a professional interventionist to help chronic opiate addicts recognize the negative effects their drug use has had on themselves and on you.
For the time they have been using, your loved one’s thought processes become conditioned to respond to negative cues with avoidance which often involves the use of more drugs. These negative reinforcements of opiate use are primary reasons they become unwilling to seek treatment. “Addiction is a complex but treatable disease that affects brain function and behavior”, according to the NIDA, but, users will most likely blame their situation on everything else they can imagine.
An intervention can help your loved into addiction by allowing you to express the damages your loved one’s addiction has caused and attribute the attention to the problems in the most appropriate ways, generally with love and respect.

Making Resolutions To Heal
Your loved one’s opiate addiction is their problem and whether they choose to accept the treatment or not, you can make plans to take back your own life. An intervention can help your loved one into opiate rehab if they know that you are serious about upholding your plans to heal and make the necessary changes that prohibit their addiction and behaviors from affecting your happiness.
Too often, thinking you are helping your loved one by contributing basic survival needs actually helps to keep them going and once you understand that this is no good and make the positive resolutions for yourself, by notifying your loved one’s of this it may be enough to influence them to do the same.
