I am not suppose to know this, but my family is planning an intervention on me this week. They all think I have a drug addiction, but I am only a recreational user in my opinion. What is an intervention and how can I make them see things my way?

Well, an intervention will be your family members, and perhaps a couple of your friends gathering in a room with you and explaining how your drug use impacts their lives and their relationships with you. They will then ask you to get treatment. If you do not feel you have an addiction, you can talk to them about it at that time, and see what they say.
Why would your entire family plan an intervention if you only are only a recreational user? It can happen I guess, but in most cases, once it is time for an intervention, help is definitely needed. They will tell you why they are worried your drug use has become an addiction and how they feel about it. You will probably be asked to agree to treatment and be told what the consequences will be if you refuse. Interventions work because they open the addict's eyes to how they are impacting loved ones. Go, listen with an open mind and then decide what you want to do.
