DeVon Franklin's Tips for a Successful Intervention

The key to a successful intervention is the breakthrough. The breakthrough is the moment when the person you're intervening with clearly sees the error of their ways (in a way they hadn't before) and is determined to make a positive change to correct the problem, which they have been resisting to correct before. Here are some helpful tips if you feel that a family member, friend or loved one needs an intervention.
