Addiction Information is vital to the process of recovery. Following many of our education sessions family members remark "I wish I had known this years ago." Drug addiction information, cross addiction information, gambling addiction information, information on sex addiction, all provide the family with a new perspective on their loved ones situation. Many families feel their addicted loved one is "selfish", "lazy" or has a "lack of willpower". Our education sessions help families see the medical reasons why addicts behave as they do.
What we cover
Intervention 180's sessions include cross addiction information, drug addiction information, gambling addiction information, information on sex addiction and many other forms of addiction. These presentations address how the addiction has influenced the family, spouses, employers and children. We discuss the process of family recovery and what each persons role is when supporting an addicted loved one. Many times we utilize PowerPoint presentations to help ephasize the medical componets of addiction.
What Family Addiction Education sessions involve-
These services can be provided even if family intervention is not necessary. Whether you need drug addiction information, gambling addiction information, cross addiction information or any other type of addiction related family education, we can help.

We provide educational PowerPoint presentations for families, businesses, organizations, treatment centers and events. We also provide educational services for intervention specialists and other professionals regarding family intervention, teen intervention and other addiction treatment services.
Addiction is a family disease and can be handed down genetically. Researchers, Doctors and Child Psychologists are finding that educating children and teens about the medical and genetic aspects of addiction is the most effective prevention to date. Parents often are unsure of what to say to their kids about addiction. Intervention 180 can help. If you have any questions about an in-home presentation, you are invited to contact us at 888-435-7960.
Cross addiction information
Cross addiction is the process of changing addictions. It is not uncommon for someone following a treatment episode to experience cross addiction. If an individual is addicted to heroin or an street drug, it is a misconception that a legal drug, like alcohol, is an acceptable replacement. This results in what is know as "cross addiction".
