When Someone You Love Has an Alcohol or Drug Problem......Intervention HelpsIt is sometimes very difficult to recognize an addiction problem in a spouse, parent, child or other loved one. You may need the help of a knowledgeable professional and the support of others with the same experience. At CNCAA's Family Education Program, you'll gather the information and resources you need to help your family deal with addiction. You will receive tools to get you started on the road to recovery.
The Family Education Program is free and offered monthly at CNCAA. It consists of 3 sessions, 1.5 hours each, and is held once a week for three weeks. We do not charge a fee for the Family Education Program, but donations are welcome.
What Does the Family Education Program Offer? We'll discuss and learn about the disease of alcoholism and addiction, how it affects family members, and what to do about it. We encourage you to attend all three sessions in order to receive the most benefit.
What is discussed within the group is kept confidential.
Nothing is discussed outside of the group.
All sessions are held at the
Council on Alcoholism and Addictions, 219 West 2nd Street, Grand Island.
Pre-registration is encouraged but not required. For more information or to register, call 308-385-5520. Email Connie Holmes, Connie@cncaa.info or Brenda Villalobos, Brenda@cncaa.info for Spanish language.
Start the healing with an intervention. Getting a loved one to agree to accept help and finding support services for all family members are the first steps toward healing.
When the addicted person is reluctant to seek help, sometimes family members, friends, and associates come together out of concern and love, to help the addict see how his/her drinking or drug use is affecting his/her life and the lives of so many people around him/her.
This is called an intervention. When carefully prepared and done with the guidance of a trained specialist, the family, friends, and associates are usually able to convince their loved one to get help.
People with alcohol or other drug dependence problems can and do recover. Intervention is often the first step.
If you would like assistance in planning, preparing for, and implementing an intervention, please call. There is a $500 fee for this service.
