No accusations. No drama. Here’s how to plan an intervention for a loved one without putting them on the spot

Families do it if a member shows signs of substance abuse or an eating disorder. Schools call in parents to intervene in cases of a student’s problematic behaviour. Colleagues get together to overthrow capitalism (Just kidding; it’s usually to bitch about the boss).
