An intervention Is when friends and family members of an addict get together and demand the addict seek help. There are consequences if the addict refuses, and often include being cut off from loved ones until he or she gets help.

Interventions can be effective if the addict is ready to get help. Everyone gets together and confronts the addict in a loving but firm manner. The addict hears how the addiction is impacting each person and there is a group plea/demand that the addict accept treatment. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. It might seem like you are all ganging up on your sister by doing an intervention but it could help her get out of denial if she has everyone in one room giving her the same message.
