10 Things Elegant Ladies NEVER Wear!

How do you help somebody who doesn’t want to be helped? There is nothing more painful than wanting to help someone . Complaining helps relieve the frustration. Some things need divine intervention (here I am referring to a doctor, marriage counsellor or life coach), some don't.

How do you help somebody who doesn’t want to be helped? There is nothing more painful than wanting to help someone, but knowing you cannot. There is nothing more heartbreaking than knowing that despite your love, and despite your desire, you are helpless. Honestly, I don't want to be helped. Just let me whine about my sore back for a while. When I'm done, I'll get back to work.

In McMahon's experience, the subject of an intervention is usually grateful for the care and support shown by family and friends. I often have people sit there and cry and say, 'I didn't know what was happening. I'm sorry I've hurt you all. Thank God you did something for me because I didn't know what to do myself. Discuss your Situation.

In simple terms, this book shows how chemical dependency affects those around the addicted person, and teaches concerned people how to help and how to do it right.In Intervention: How To Help Someone Who Doesn't Want Help, Dr. Vernon Johnson describes the process that has successfully motivated thousands of chemically dependent people to accept help.

  • This is a classic in the addictions field. Vernon Johnson helps us understand how the addict thinks, how families react, and how to put together an intervention. Highly recommended as a crash course in how to be helpful to an addict.

  • This book was informative and helpful in understanding the assistance required for people with substance abuse issues. It recommends that a fairly elaborate and well organized plan be orchestrated before scheduling the intervention. The person that originated my investigation into planning an intervention used this book as a guide but did not have the people for a complex intervention. It is a good book to read before instigating the intrusion, to help thoroughly think through all aspects before confronting the person that will be forever impacted. It is a very good guide for anyone living with an impaired person that needs to make a drastic change to save lives.

  • Terrific.....makes major points quickly and sharply. Easy to understand. Very powerful. First half describes what is happening to the addicted person. Second half gets to a possible range of solutions with pointed steps in the process that are very practical. Recommended to by a professional. The book was miles ahead of other reads on the topic.

  • According to Vernon Johnson, author of "Intervention: How to Help Someone Who Doesn't Want Help", and a pioneer in the field, we know these six things about addiction:

    1) The disease can be described: it is an inappropriate compulsion that is unpredictable, excessive, and constant. 2) The disease is primary - it causes many psychological, physiological, social, emotional, and spiritual problems - not vice versa. 3) It is progressive. 4) It is permanent, or chronic. 5) It is fatal. 6)It is treatable.

    You may ask why doesn't the addict see what's happening and quit? A chief symptom of the disease is that the addict is blind to what is happening to him. And an intervention may be the only way to get him to see. Therefore, a good definition of intervention is: presenting reality, in a receivable way, to a person who is out of touch with it.

    If you suspect someone you know is chemically dependent, but are not sure, you can take the following test. Answer each question with a "yes" or "no".

    1. Is the person drinking or using more now than in the past?
    2. Are you afraid to be around the person when he or she is drinking or using - because of the possibility of verbal or physical abuse?
    3. Has the person ever forgotten or denied things that happened during a drinking or using episode?
    4. Do you worry about the person's drinking or drug use?
    5. Does the person refuse to talk about his or her drinking or drug use - or even to discuss the possibility that he or she might have a problem with it?
    6. Has the person ever broken promises to control or stop his or her drinking or drug use?
    7. Has the person ever lied about his or her drinking or using, or tried to hide it from you?
    8. Have you ever been embarrassed by the person's drinking or drug use?
    9. Have you ever lied to anyone else about the person's drinking or drug use?
    10. Have you ever made excuses for the way the person behaved while drinking or using?
    11. Are most of the person's friends heavy drinkers or drug users?
    12. Does the person make excuses for the way he or she behaved while drinking or using?
    13. Do you feel guilty about the person's drinking or drug use?
    14. Are holidays and social functions unpleasant for you because of the person's drinking or drug use?
    15. Do you feel anxious or tense around the person because of his or her drinking or drug use?
    16. Have you ever helped the person to "cover up" for a drinking or using episode - by calling his or her employer, or telling others that he or she is sick?
    17. Does the person deny that he or she has a drinking problem because he or she only drinks beer or wine? Or deny that he or she has a problem because use is limited to marijuana, or diet pills, or some other supposedly "harmless" substance?
    18. Does the person's behavior change noticeably when he or she is drinking or using? (For example: a normally quiet person might become loud and talkative, or a normally mild-mannered person might become quick to anger.)
    19. Does the person avoid social functions where alcohol will not be served, or drugs will not be available or permitted?
    20. Does the person insist on going only to restaurants that serve alcohol?
    21. To your knowledge, has the person ever driven a car while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs?
    22. Has the person ever received a DWI or DUI?
    23. Are you afraid to ride with the person after he or she has been drinking or using?
    24. Has anyone ever talked to you about the person's drinking or using behavior?
    25. Has the person ever expressed remorse for his or her behavior during a drinking or using episode?
    26. If you are married to the person and have children, are the children afraid of the person while he or she is drinking or using?
    27. Does the person seem to have a low self-image?
    28. Have you ever found alcohol or drugs that the person has hidden?
    29. Is the person having financial difficulties that seem to be related to his or her drinking or drug use?
    30. Does the person look forward to times when he or she can drink or use drugs?

    If you answered "yes" to any three of these questions, then there is a good chance that the person you care about has a drinking or drug problem. If you answered "yes" to any five, then the chance is even greater. And if you answered "yes" to seven or more, you can feel safe in assuming that the person definitely has a problem with chemical dependency, and you should intervene before it's too late. So read Intervention by Dr. Johnson and discover what you can do to possibly save a life. Don't wait for him or her to hit bottom, because the bottom might be death.

  • Great
