Full Article

Many families and friends agonize over how to help loved ones struggling with addiction, alcoholism, drug problems, substance abuse or other mental health problems. They feel helpless as their loved ones spiral into lives of desperate chaos. Oftentimes, children, partners, siblings and parents are subjected to abuse, violence, threats and emotional upheaval because of alcohol and drug problems.


One way that concerned family and friends may be able to mobilize forces to help both the user and themselves is through an intervention. Here's what you should know about an intervention, including what it is, who might benefit and how to organize one for someone you care about.


What is an intervention?

An intervention is an organized, planned process in which family and friends, and sometimes colleagues and clergy or faith leaders, join together in a meeting to compassionately confront a loved one in an effort to encourage him or her to seek treatment for alcoholism, addiction or another mental health problem. The intervention:

  • Provides specific examples of harmful behaviors and their impact
  • Offers a pre-arranged treatment option
  • Spells out specific consequences if a loved one refuses to accept treatment


Who might benefit from an intervention?

An intervention can help people who struggle with a variety of mental health conditions and addictive behaviors but who are in denial about their situation or refuse treatment, including:

  • Alcoholism
  • Prescription drug abuse
  • Abuse of street drugs
  • Substance abuse
  • Eating disorders
  • Self-injury
  • Compulsive gambling
  • Sexual addiction


How do you know when an intervention is needed?

Some indications that a loved one may benefit from an intervention include:

  • Health problems because of the addiction or other disorder
  • Your loved one harms or threatens family, friends or strangers
  • Children are neglected or abused
  • Job loss
  • Financial problems
  • Homelessness
  • Risk of suicide or self-harm
  • Driving under the influence
  • Loss or alienation of friends
  • Legal problems or criminal activity
  • Previous unsuccessful attempts at treatment


When should an intervention take place?

It's common to think that people must hit "rock bottom" before they're ready for treatment or willing to accept help on their own. Many experts believe that's too late, though. By then, relationships may be damaged beyond repair. Children may be neglected, abused or deeply emotionally wounded. Your loved one may lose his or her job. Worse, your loved one could die because of the alcoholism, addiction or other mental health condition.


Instead, think of an intervention as giving your loved one a reason to want to seek help. This is sometimes referred to as "raising the bottom" because it encourages a loved one to seek help before he or she otherwise would.


How does a typical intervention work?

A family member or friend may propose doing an intervention on a loved one and form a planning group. The group gathers information about the extent of the loved one's problem and researches the condition. The group makes arrangements to enroll the loved one in a specific treatment program. Keep the plan confidential, so that the loved one doesn't find out.


Group members draft short letters to their loved one that will be read during the intervention. These letters are a key part of the intervention. They typically express your love and concern and may highlight a fond memory or two. But they also detail specific problems and incidents brought on by your loved one's harmful behavior.


The letters may discuss the emotional, health and financial toll of your loved one's illness — both on him or her and on others. Finally, they should outline specific consequences that will occur if your loved one refuses to accept treatment. One consequence may be asking your loved one to move out. Another may be loss of contact with children.


The group forms a core team that will personally participate in the intervention. Team members set a date and location for the intervention. Without revealing the reason, the loved one is asked to the intervention site. Members of the core team then take turns reading the letters to their loved one. After the letters are read, the loved one is presented with a treatment option and asked to accept that option on the spot. The intervention typically lasts an hour or less.


Is an intervention simply an ambush?

Although the intervention may come as a surprise, it isn't meant to ambush your loved one. Don't use it as a forum for hostile attacks or for name-calling. Keep it honest but loving and dignified. The numerous examples of problems caused by your loved one's addiction or substance abuse problem are intended to provide powerful but caring pressure to change and accept treatment. The threat of consequences for not committing to treatment — such as the loss of important relationships — can be effective motivators. Some studies uphold the powerful influence that family intervention can have in motivating a loved one to move beyond denial and seek help.

To fans, Griffey was Jordan,

To fans, Griffey was Jordan, Montana, Gretzky rolled into one

"It was a time for goose bumps and tears. Fans attending Wednesday's Seattle Mariners game only got about an hour's advance notice that the greatest player in team history had retired.

With Aerosmith's haunting anthem "Dream On" echoing throughout Safeco Field, fans stood and watched a montage of Ken Griffey Jr.'s highlights. Realistically, Junior has provided enough highlights to require an entire Aerosmith album to get through them all.

The scene was so moving that both the Twins and Mariners players watched from the top step of their

As the montage ended - fittingly - with the Kid's mad dash from first to home plate in the 1995 playoffs against the New York Yankees, with the voice of a screaming Dave Niehaus piercing the air, fans applauded.

It wasn't raucous, enthusiastic applause like during Griffey's return to Seattle with the Cincinnati Reds in 2007, or his return to the Mariners in 2009. The crowd was significantly larger on those instances, and knew what to expect.

This was applause with a touch of melancholy. For many, their favorite player had said

Many fans at Safeco on Wednesday were still stunned at the news that No. 24 had called it quits.

Andrea Katalich of Seattle was at the Pyramid brew pub with her husband and saw the news scrolling across the bottom of the TV."

Jay Buhner, Edgar Martinez remember Griffey

"When Jay Buhner found out his old Mariners buddy, Ken Griffey Jr., had retired, he had one overriding thought.

It wasn't about Griffey's transcendent talent, not the mind-boggling catches and majestic home runs, though those came to mind soon enough. It wasn't even about how Griffey, in his glorious prime, captivated the baseball world and turned Seattle — isolated, neglected old Seattle — into his personal

"I hope to God that he's really and truly happy," Buhner said Wednesday evening. "That's all I care about at this stage. He is the most beloved Mariner ever. He dedicated his whole life to the game, and you can ask anyone — there were times he played in a whole different league, a whole different level, from the rest of us.

"But I just hope that after everything he's done putting us on the map, making Seattle a baseball city, saving baseball in Seattle, I hope to God he's happy. I hope he's at peace, and that when he puts his head on his pillow tonight, he feels good about the decision he's made."

When Edgar Martinez heard the news he, too, yearned for the ultimate happiness of his longtime teammate. And he reveled in their shared legacy, eternally bonded on opposite ends of the most scintillating single moment in Seattle sports history: Junior sprinting around the bases on Edgar's drive into the left-field corner in the magical October of

"It's really nice to be linked to him with that double," Martinez said Wednesday. "We had an amazing year that season. He gets hurt, and then being able to come back the way he did, and contribute the way he did, especially in the playoffs, was amazing."

Cubs' series opener vs Reds postponed

Jay Bruce, the National League's player of the week, had to sit and watch for another day - this time, because of raindrops. His manager hopes he doesn't cool off.

The opener of a series between the Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds was postponed on Tuesday because several lines of thunderstorms moved through the area. The game wasn't immediately rescheduled.ken griffey shoes

It meant that Bruce, who is one homer shy of matching a Reds record, had to limit himself to batting practice instead of trying to hit one out for the fifth game in a row - something he wouldn't mind taking a swing at.

"Uh, sure, why not?" Bruce said. "But I'm not trying to think about any of that kind of stuff. It's great. I'd like to extend this week for as long as I can and be consistent, really."griffey shoes

The rainout was more beneficial to the Cubs, who arrived in town early Tuesday after a 6-4 loss in Philadelphia. The unexpected day off gave their bullpen a chance to regroup and get a little healthier. Manager Dale Sveum said after the postponement that reliever Scott Maine became sick again and wouldn't have been available to pitch.

"So we would have been a little bit short," Sveum said.ken griffey jr shoes

It was the first postponement for both teams this season and the sixth overall at Great American Ball Park, which opened in 2003. A storm moved in during batting practice, followed by another line of storms. The game was called 2 hours, 13 minutes after the originally scheduled start, with more rain expected.

The NL Central rivals are scheduled to play a night game on Wednesday and a day game on Thursday that completes the series. They have one more series in Cincinnati from Aug. 17-19, when they would likely make up the rained-out game.king griffey shoes

The Reds decided to keep their rotation on turn, pushing everyone back one day. Cincinnati's Bronson Arroyo will start on Wednesday against Jeff Samardzija. Chicago made one change in its pitching plans, moving left-hander Paul Maholm back from Wednesday to Friday against the Dodgers.

Chicago's biggest problem during an 8-15 April was its lack of offense. The Cubs are last in the majors with only nine homers, five of them by Bryan LaHair. Alfonso Soriano batted .237 with no homers and two doubles in April.air griffey max 1

Told that Soriano was hopeful he'd start hitting once the calendar changed, Sveum said, "The calendar?"

He wasn't thinking about the monthly calendar, but the 2012 calendar.

"I've got to find another job then," Sveum said, laughing.

The Reds also struggled to hit in April, but have started to find their stride lately. Bruce has led the way, going 10 for 21 in six games last week with four homers. He has homered in four consecutive games, one shy of the club record shared by Ted Kluszewski, Johnny Bench, Ken Griffey Jr. and Adam Dunn.

The Reds were off on Monday, when Bruce was chosen as the NL's player of the week. He got another day of rest because of the air griffey max 1

Bruce had career highs with 32 homers and 97 RBIs last season. He was the NL's player of the month in May last year, when he batted .342 with 12 homers and 33 RBIs. He's known for staying hot for several weeks at a time, then going into a deep slump.

"I've had this before," Bruce said. "It's not this (type) of week that's the problem. If I have a problem, it's the other weeks. I'm just trying to minimize that."nike air griffey fury 2012

Manager Dusty Baker pointed out that the Cubs are likely to pitch Bruce carefully during their series.

"Sometimes a player who's hot tends to cool off the next series because of how you pitch `em," Baker said.griffey max fury 2012

NOTES: Baker said INF Miguel Cairo, on the disabled list since April 17 with a strained left hamstring, is expected to start a minor league rehab assignment this week. ... The rainout means Reds RHP Homer Bailey will wind up pitching on his 26th birthday Thursday. Bailey has allowed only three earned runs in his last two starts, covering 13 1-3 innings. ... The Cubs expect to activate RHP Ryan Dempster off the DL to start Thursday's game. Dempster has been sidelined by a strained right thigh. ... The Reds won't have to face Maholm, who beat them 6-1 on April 21 at Wrigley Field and has won his last two starts.

Safeco Field still a gem after first decade

By its 10th birthday, the Kingdome had already been declared an eyesore, deemed obsolete, and scorned as a financial albatross for one of its two prime tenants, the Mariners.

By contrast, as Safeco Field nears its 10th birthday — which arrives on Wednesday with the Mariners in the midst of their All-Star break — it still has the full bloom of youth.griffeys for kids

To listen to the Mariners talk, in fact, Safeco is just in its infancy. Though the ballpark's very existence, after the long, protracted political battle to get it built, is credited with keeping the franchise in Seattle, they perceive their new home will have more staying power than three Jamie Moyers.

"We look at what Wrigley Field is in Chicago, what Fenway means in Boston. We can see this being a 100-year facility," said Bart Waldman, the Mariners' executive vice president of legal and governmental affairs. "That's how we treat it. We hope to get to that iconic status."griffeys 2012

That's a realistic goal, says Joan Enticknap, president of HomeStreet Bank and one of the driving forces behind Safeco as the original Public Facilities District chair. She remains a PFD board member — and a Mariners season-ticket holder.

"Look at Smith Tower, and all the other buildings that were built very well to start out," said Enticknap. "They stood the test of time. The whole throwaway era was unconscionable. I'm permanently obsessed with this concept: I want the park to last 100 years. We do a lot of work to ensure we never have another Kingdome."

Waldman's involvement in the Mariners' ballpark pursuit goes back to 1993, when he tried, unsuccessfully, to brainstorm ways to make the Kingdome feasible via lease concessions and facility air griffey max ii

"We couldn't figure out anything that made economic sense for baseball," said Waldman.

It was at that point then-governor Gary Locke convened a task force that concluded the Mariners' long-term survival depended on building a new ballpark.

To get from that theoretical declaration to the sparkling $517 million facility with the newfangled retractable roof, an edifice that has been attended by more than 30 million baseball fans (and 54,097 wrestling fans for WrestleMania XIX) was hardly a day at the park.air griffey max 2

In fact, as the headaches mounted, in the form of intense political opposition, numerous lawsuits trying to stop the project dead in its tracks, and the highly controversial $100 million cost overruns that everyone wanted someone else to pay, it was easy to despair that the stadium would never get built.

But get built it did, in record time, because, as Ken Johnsen, the former executive director of the PFD, in essence the landlords of Safeco Field, said bluntly, "This was too important to just say, 'Never mind, we're not going to do it.' "

And now, 10 years down the road, it's the perfect time for some reflection on the evolution, and revolution, of Safeco Field.women ken griffey shoes

First of all, by all accounts, it has succeeded in its primary function, which was to save the Mariners for Seattle. They have gone from one of the most financially unstable teams in the majors to one that annually ranks in the top 10 in payroll, and now has the second-longest continuous ownership group in the American League.

"There wouldn't be any Seattle Mariners without Safeco Field," said team president Chuck Armstrong. "It has fulfilled all our expectations and projections — exceeded those. It has provided the financial stability we needed."

Armstrong added that Safeco Field "might be the most successful public-private partnership ever done."women griffeys

The Mariners' ownership contributed $45 million initially to the project and then coughed up, reluctantly, about $98 million more to cover the cost overruns.

The bonds used to design and build Safeco Field are on pace to be retired early — seven years ahead of schedule for the $26 million used to build the parking garage (they are expected to be paid off this year), and four years early (in 2012) for the $310 million in ballpark bonds.

And Armstrong notes that once the Mariners' ownership group recoups its operating losses, a profit-sharing system goes into place in which 10 percent of subsequent earnings will go back to the public via the PFD.griffeys for women

On an aesthetic level, there are still critics who bemoan the fact it wasn't built in the North Lot of the Kingdome, or who maintain that the retractable roof was unnecessary.

Architect critic John Pastier said upon its opening that the retractable roof was "not only a superbly engineered waste of money" but also "a superbly engineered waste of space."cheap griffey shoes

A decade later, he hasn't changed his advocacy for the North Kingdome location ("it's in the wrong place," he says of Safeco) nor his disdain for the roof, which he calls a "real wet blanket ... a beast. It's like a foreign object."

Yet the ambience, atmosphere, architecture, sightlines and sensibilities — the whole ballpark experience — is widely considered to be one of the best in baseball in survey after survey.

Certainly, it is revered by ballplayers (with the exception, perhaps, of right-handed power hitters).king griffeys 2012

"Everyone loves it," said Texas reliever Eddie Guardado, who spent two-plus seasons with the Mariners. "I'd say it ranks in most players' top three, and a lot of top ones. It's a beautiful park."

The Mariners were adamant from the beginning they needed a roof to ensure their large contingent of out-of-town fans that their trip would not be for naught. And the roof, designed with the concept of being an umbrella over the stadium — a carport rather than a garage was the common explanation — actually came in on budget at $67 million after being reduced from five to three sections.

"It was an amazing feat to get that done, and to do it in a way that doesn't just work well technically, but works well from a fan enjoyment standpoint," said Johnsen. "When you're in the park and the roof is closed, you still feel like you're outside. That amazed me."

Other attributes of Safeco are the dazzling view from various locales, and the way the park fosters mobility — fans can watch from various vantage points in the ballpark and not miss action while in the concourses.king griffeys

"I often get up around the fifth or sixth inning, walk around the whole place on the 100 level all the way around, and just sort of purr, looking at all those happy people looking down on that field of dreams," said former University of Washington president William Gerberding, one of the original members of the PFD board. "Seattle got lucky with that park."

Branch Rickey once said famously that luck is the residue of design. The Seattle-based architectural firm NBBJ was given the task of designing Safeco Field, though in the meeting to choose the architect, the Mariners cast the lone vote for HOK, the Kansas City powerhouse that had masterminded the highly praised Camden Yards.

"I think the M's finally came around," says Dennis Forsyth, the NBBJ architect who had the daunting position of project manager. "We weren't their choice, and we were always walking up hill. But they're proud of the field. Whenever I run into Chuck, I think he's happy."

At their pitch meeting to the PFD, NBBJ posted a sign that said, "Our goal is to create the best ballpark in the world."cheap ken griffey shoes

Said Forsyth: "I think the PFD board had the same desire, and the Mariners had the same desire. That was the mission we were on — to make it fit into Pioneer Square and make it feel like it belonged in Seattle."

And to do it on an accelerated timetable that the Mariners deemed essential. The original goal was to have the ballpark ready for opening day in 1999, but that was reluctantly moved back to midseason. Still, of the five ballparks that were being built at the time — San Francisco, Houston, Milwaukee and Detroit, as well as Seattle — it was on the fastest track.

"Remember, we were losing, just pure cash losses, $20 million every year," said Waldman. "So every year's delay was another $20 million of loss. Beyond that, this thing had a certain momentum to it. You always worry, on the political side, about losing that momentum."kids ken griffey shoes

So it was a wild race against time that accentuated the stress that was already swirling. More than 3,250 workers representing about 29 construction trades built Safeco in a joint venture of Huber, Hunt and Nichols and Kiewit Construction. Skilling Ward Magnusson Barkshire designed and engineered the roof.

"We needed to build it as fast as any ballpark that size — faster," said the PFD's Johnsen. "I think in a lot of ways that drove the tension over the course of the project on a number of fronts. There was not a lot of time to say, 'Let's sit back and think about this.' "

"It was a crazy atmosphere," added Forsyth. "We had to really make every decision count. People were out there trying to stop it. It was just strange. We all put our heads down and got it done."kids griffey shoes

And they did so in a way that even some of its fiercest critics have grudgingly admitted is an artistic success. Chris Van Dyk, head of the watchdog group, "Citizens for More Important Things," which filed a lawsuit claiming the ballpark bonds were illegal that went all the way to the state Supreme Court before being shot down, remains disdainful of the public expenditure.

"We opposed it because we felt professional baseball had plenty of its own money to build its own bloody stadium, and the Kingdome was only 20 years old," he said. "Neither factor has changed.

"What they used to justify the wisdom of using a half-billion dollars which was desperately needed for other stuff was the economic development in the immediate area. The only economic development you see in the area is a strip club that they've been fighting."

Yet Van Dyk is a Mariners follower, and he acknowledged that he has recently taken in a game at Safeco Field. His evaluation?griffey shoes

"It's an incredible facility," he said. "Gosh, the fans love it."

On that one point alone, perhaps, he and the Mariners are in sync. Armstrong has noted that several times a week, he'll find himself admiring the place and reflecting on the arduous journey that got the team there.

"I tell people I have four children, three of whom are human," he said.

"Safeco Field is my fourth child. She's beautiful."

Larry Brown is introduced as Southern Methodist coach | College basketball

Larry Brown has returned to college coaching.

The 71-year-old Hall of Famer was formally introduced as Southern Methodist's coach Monday in Dallas. SMU has not won an NCAA tournament game since 1988 — the same year Brown won a national title at Kansas in his most recent season as a college coach.

Brown, known for sometimes messy departures from jobs, brushed off questions about how long he would stay at SMU, saying he thought the Mustangs had the resources to compete in the Big East when they join that conference in 2013. He joked about his age.

"When I look in the mirror, I get kind of scared," said Brown, who replaces the fired Matt Doherty. "But inside, I feel like I can do this forever."griffey shoes 2012

Brown is the only coach to win both an NCAA championship and an NBA title. He hasn't coached since leaving the Charlotte Bobcats in December 2010.

Brown declined to talk in detail about his contract.

"I've always been overpaid and this is no exception," he said.
