PLANNING

Alcohol and/or substance abuse and addiction affect not only the person using the drug or alcohol, but the entire family system. Loved ones, family, and friends are part of the solution at Pacific Solstice Addictions Treatment Center.

The Problem Becomes Evident

Friends & Family


Your life becomes unmanageable. You spend hours and most of your days worried about your addict family member. You have sleepless nights worried about the addict. You find yourself acting as “a private eye” often trying to get more information to try to understand what is going on! Life is crazy and chaotic.

Addict / Substance Abuser


You are unable to fulfill your obligations at work/school. Friends, family and co-workers are upset with you. Your drinking and/or substance abuse is getting out of control. Your doctor maybe even tells you that your health is at risk, or a lawyer may tell you to get help with a DUI case.

Intervention

Friends & Family

The addict or substance abuser is not the only problem, nor the only one who has the solution. The intervention is for the whole system: the addict and the loved ones.

Addict / Substance Abuser

The addict or substance abuser learns that his/her life can not continue as it has in the past. The family and the addict/abuser needs to change. Now.
