Intervention becomes spiritual negotiation when founded upon a pledge to act with virtue and integrity. We do not battle addiction with anger, judgement, or blame. Instead, we reach out to the true person behind the addiction using love, compassionate honesty, and a vision for the future.
Somewhere far beneath the addiction, inside the captive heart, the true spirit hears the voice of love calling.
In that moment, our loved one stops listening to the voice of addiction. They listen to our voice instead and trust us. In that moment, we move the person we love into the first stage of recovery.
