If someone is struggling, but demonstrates resistance to receiving help, then often a drug and alcohol intervention becomes not only the appropriate option, but a necessary one as well. Connections in Recovery Los Angeles provides Drug and Alcohol Interventions in Los Angeles.

  • *If someone is struggling, but demonstrates resistance to receiving help, then often an intervention becomes not only the appropriate option, but a necessary one as well.

 

The remaining three types of interventions are

Today’s alarming percentage of college students abusing drug and alcohol cannot be ignored. Studies have shown that today’s young adults are abusing prescription drugs and the number of students using marijuana daily has increased to approximately 4 percent since the 1990s. A Columbia University study revealed that “almost half of full-time college students binge drink or abuse prescription drugs, and almost a quarter of those college students meet the medical definition of having a problem with substance abuse or a dependence.”

 

Here is a great article on how a good chunk of universities have introduced stricter rules on alcohol, especially at fraternities, to try to help decrease addiction with their college students.
