Synthetic Drug Intervention
Synthetic drugs, or designer drugs, are man-made chemical compounds created in laboratories. Some are prescribed by doctors to treat different ailments while others are illegal and used for recreational purposes. Many of these illegal drugs are produced to mimic the effects of the real thing. Synthetic drugs are often sold on the internet with warning labels to avoid legal detection. Many individuals have developed an addiction to substances like synthetic marijuana. Without getting professional help at a rehab center, any kind of substance abuse can spiral out of control and cause a variety of health problems, even death.
Brandon Novak understands how challenging it can be to convince your loved one to get addiction treatment. Many addicts struggle to come to terms with their drug problem, making it difficult for their loved ones to get them help. If you have a friend or family member who’s struggling with an addiction to synthetic drugs, our synthetic drug intervention can help you find the professional help they need.

How An Intervention For Synthetic Drug Addiction Works
A synthetic drug intervention is a meeting in which the addict’s closest friends and family members share their concerns and confront the individual about their addiction. These meetings are normally planned by the appointed leader of the group or a certified intervention specialist (CIP).
A successful synthetic drug intervention requires detailed planning. A CIP can organize and conduct the intervention, minimizing any family drama or other issues that may take away from the purpose of the meeting. Factors like the time, date, and location of the meeting as well as a list of those who will be in attendance need to be determined ahead of time. The CIP or group leader should also write a script detailing each step of the intervention. Group members will also be asked to write intervention letters that are effective and express their love for the person.
Once these details are sorted out, the group will then figure out a way to get the addict to the meeting. Someone from the group will usually invite the addict to spend some time together only to arrive at the intervention. This isn’t meant to be a trap, but rather an opportunity to have one-on-one time with the person without outside distractions. Once everyone is in attendance, the meeting can begin. The group leader or CIP may introduce the purpose of the meeting and members can begin by reading their letters one by one.
