We are in desperate need of one for my mother.
My mother was diagnosed with MS over 20 years ago and has chosen to ignore all medical care to slow the progression of the disease. She is in denial and has excuses for all of her conditions (I'm weak from lack of nutrition, I can't walk because my spine isn't straight, I've always had bladder problems, etc...)
Instead she has turned to alternative medicine to cure her ailments. She has hooked up with a clinic that has convinced her that they can heal her and she has spent over $200,000 in the last year paying them for medicine they say is from Europe and not FDA approved. The money she is spending cannot be claimed on her taxes and is not unlimited. She will run out quickly at the rate they are bleeding her dry.
Anytime someone tries to question what she is doing she becomes very hostile. Her husband is at his wits end, but won't stand up to her. He continually enables her. We've tried every approach we know to stop this. We all fell that she is not thinking clearly and this clinic is simply selling her hope - veryy expensive hope!
We are all tired of watching her slowly die and need help. We would like to have an intervention. Something like they do for drug addicts, where you have an interventionist present and a plan for treatment in place if we can get her to agree to go. Do such thing as a Medical Intervention exist? I don't know where to begin or who to ask for something like this.
