Interventions

In some cases it is necessary for family and friends to intervene – to take direct and clear action to see that a loved one gets the help they desperately need. There are experts who specialize in this first, very difficult, but crucial step in the recovery process.

Addiction Help Books
The relapse rate for addicts in conventional treatment programs is a shocking 70-90%, despite the best efforts of family members, doctors, and the addicts themselves. Why is conventional treatment often failing? Creative Care Malibu founders Morteza and Karen Khaleghi believe they have the answer – unresolved emotional trauma. In their new book, they detail how identifying these traumas, along with undiagnosed illnesses, is key for the addict to understand and gain control of their behavior.  Readers will learn how to:

·       Recognize the triggers that escalate addictive behavior

·       Help their loved one peel back the layers of their life to discover painful events and memories that have led to self-medication  

·       Understand the emotional components of psychological disorders and how they can become the starting points for addiction

·       Re-frame family dynamics to break the addiction cycle

free from addiction
 
There is a way out. There is hope. Addiction invades every region and demographic in the United States, affecting more than 23 million Americans and putting families though a heartbreaking cycle of recovery and relapse. For many, traditional treatment has not worked. In his book, Dr Khaleghi explains a form of treatment that requires a deeper analysis of the self - and the pain, depression, or trauma that has contributed to the grip of addiction.
