      Commonly Asked Questions about Addiction and Treatment

      Can alcohol withdrawal be fatal?

      Yes, alcohol withdrawal can be fatal in severe cases, which is why it should always be managed under the supervision of healthcare professionals. This is especially true for individuals who have been drinking heavily for a long period of time or who have a history of severe withdrawal symptoms.

      The most serious form of alcohol withdrawal is called delirium tremens (DTs), which occurs in approximately 5% of patients undergoing withdrawal. It typically starts 48 to 72 hours after the last drink, and symptoms can include severe confusion, hallucinations, high blood pressure, fever, heavy sweating, and rapid heartbeat. In addition to these, seizures can occur, which add to the risk.

      Delirium tremens is a medical emergency and can be life-threatening if not treated promptly. Mortality rates without treatment are estimated to be as high as 35%, but with appropriate treatment, this rate drops to 5-15%.

      Even less severe cases of alcohol withdrawal can be dangerous because they can lead to dehydration, severe vomiting, or other complications. Furthermore, withdrawal symptoms can make it difficult for an individual to maintain abstinence from alcohol, increasing the risk of a potentially dangerous relapse.

      Can I force my adult child to get help for their addiction?

      While it's natural to want to help your adult child struggling with addiction, it is essential to recognize that you cannot force them into treatment if they are unwilling. As an adult, they have the right to make their own decisions, and treatment is most effective when the individual is motivated and ready to change.

      However, there are several ways you can support and encourage your adult child to seek help for their addiction:

      • Express concern: Openly share your concerns about their substance use in a non-judgmental and empathetic manner. Use "I" statements to convey your feelings and avoid blaming or accusing them.
      • Offer information: Provide your adult child with information about addiction and the available treatment options. Encourage them to research these options and consider the benefits of seeking help.
      • Set boundaries: Establish clear boundaries to protect yourself and other family members from the negative consequences of your adult child's addiction. For example, you might decide not to provide financial support if it enables their substance use.
      • Encourage support group attendance: Suggest that your adult child attends support group meetings, such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous. These meetings can offer valuable peer support and help them understand that they are not alone in their struggle.
      • Consider an intervention: If your adult child remains resistant to seeking help, consider organizing a professionally guided intervention with the assistance of a certified interventionist. An intervention involves gathering loved ones to express their concern and present an united front in encouraging the individual to enter treatment.
      • Seek support for yourself: Dealing with a loved one's addiction can be emotionally taxing. Connect with support groups, such as Al-Anon or Nar-Anon, which are specifically designed for family members of individuals with addiction. These groups can provide valuable resources and coping strategies.

      What happens in an intervention for someone with an addiction to drugs?

      An intervention for someone with a drug addiction is a structured and planned event designed to encourage the individual to acknowledge their addiction and seek professional help. The primary goal is to guide the person towards accepting treatment and taking the necessary steps towards recovery. Here is an outline of what typically happens during an intervention:

      • Planning: Before the intervention, loved ones and concerned parties (such as family members and friends) gather to discuss the situation and develop a plan. They may enlist the help of a professional interventionist, who can provide guidance on the intervention process and help maintain focus on the desired outcome.
      • Preparation: Participants gather information about the person's addiction, the impact it has had on their lives, and the available treatment options. They also prepare personal statements expressing their concern, love, and support, while addressing the negative consequences of the individual's drug use.
      • Rehearsal: The group rehearses the intervention to ensure that everyone is prepared, confident, and aware of their roles. This step helps participants maintain a calm and non-confrontational tone during the actual intervention.
      • The intervention meeting: The person with the addiction is invited to a pre-arranged location, often under the pretense of a different event. The group then confronts the individual with their prepared statements, detailing the impact of the addiction on their lives and urging the person to seek help.
      • Presentation of treatment options: The group presents the person with a pre-selected treatment plan or multiple options, emphasizing the importance of immediate action. It's crucial to have arrangements in place, such as pre-admission to a treatment facility or an appointment with a counselor, to facilitate a smooth transition into treatment.
      • Setting boundaries and consequences: During the intervention, participants establish clear boundaries and consequences if the person refuses to accept help. These consequences may include ceasing financial support, limiting contact, or other actions to protect themselves from the negative effects of the addiction.
      • Support and encouragement: Throughout the intervention, participants express their love and support for the individual, emphasizing their belief in the person's ability to recover and rebuild their life.
      • Post-intervention follow-up: If the person agrees to seek treatment, the group continues to provide support during their recovery process. If the person refuses help, the group must follow through with the established consequences to reinforce the seriousness of the situation.
