Infographic: Alcohol Intervention

This infographic makes the case that an alcohol intervention for an individual with alcohol abuse issues can be a very effective way to get them into treatment. It cites American Psychological Association research that states that 75% of alcoholics enroll in alcohol treatment after a properly conducted alcohol intervention and that there success rates are just as high as those who entered treatment without an intervention. This infographic also gives tips from the Mayo Clinic on planning a successful alcohol intervention. It concludes with data from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration concerning the potential population that could benefit from an alcohol intervention; over 23 million people need treatment for a substance abuse problem, but only 2.6 million receive it.
