Our very own Nicholas Kardaras weighs in on the intervention process with regard to Miss Lindsay Lohan on Hollyscoop.com.
Hollywood has been enamored by the cyclical rise and fall of movie star Lindsay Lohan since childhood. The Mean Girls actress has struggled with substance abuse issues and allegations since her teens; trading glamour magazine covers for tabloid fodder.
A 2012 attempt by Lohan’s father, Michael Lohan, to conduct an intervention for the actress ended in failure, and a high degree of criticism from substance abuse professionals.
The Dunes Dr. Nicholas Kardaras’ Professional Opinion On Intervention
Dr. Nicholas Kardaras, Clinical Director at The Dunes East Hampton recently offered some insight into the intervention process with HollyScoop.com.
“My clinical perspective is to look at addiction as the habituated self-medicating behavior that is the visible manifestation of a larger underlying compendium of issues – a perfect storm, if you will; these storm fronts are oftentimes emotional, psychological, environmental, childhood or even existential issues that lead a person to seek repetitive numbing”, Kardaras told Hollyscoop.com.
Michael Lohan supposedly staged the intervention with a large group, including Lindsay’s entire management team.
“In an intervention, the addict may or may not even be in a place yet where they can connect those dots,” says Kardaras. “Regardless, we try and – in a non-accusing way, let the person know that there is an alternative to their currently problematic lifestyle.”
According to reports, Michael’s approach was far from subtle. Lindsay’s father is said to have showed up out of the blue at Lindsay’s Beverly Hills home. Police were called shortly afterward.
