The phone call I received at 1 a.m. the day after Christmas will always be with me. It was the call I wished would never have come, but thought, one day might. As I got off the phone, I woke my husband and told him to get John Southworth’s number. I have spoken with John two months prior, but never followed through with on intervention. I thought, like many, that my brother might get better. Obviously, I was wrong. By 10 a.m., my husband, my parents, John and I were flying from all corners to get to my brother. John knew the exact facility that would fit my brother’s needs and secured an admission. Without knowing much about addiction and rehabilitation, I could never have found the facility myself in this short period of time, and under so much stress. That evening, John and I went to the hospital and met with my brother. John, with his expertise, knew how to direct the conversation, the intervention, and provide the leverage to convince him to get treatment. If that were not enough, after a grueling and emotionally exhausting 16 hours, John came to meet with my parents. He explained to them the manipulation and decent of addiction. My brother did enter treatment, but not without more episodes of chaos and turmoil. John was with me, each step. He helped me see through my brother’s addictive behavior and denial. John kept me strong and together with my family, we could provide the support he needed. I know this is only the beginning of the journey for my brother and my family. I thank God that He brought John to us. John was our North Star through this painful ordeal and we are truly thankful.
