Addiction Intervention Services
Getting an addicted family member to accept treatment can be quite scary considering the uncertainty on how they may react. However, with adequate planning and the assistance of a trained interventionist, the desired outcome of getting the individual into rehab can be achieved.
An intervention is essentially a structured, objective-oriented method of assisting addicted individuals to accept treatment through non-confrontational discussions. It’s aim is to raise awareness of how destructive their habit is and how it is affecting them and others around them.
It is recommended that the intervention process be conducted in the presence of a trained interventionist with knowledge of the process and experience in developing strategies to achieve the desired outcome. He or she also serves as a moderator to keep the discussion in line with the objective, steering the discussions away from name-calling and finger-pointing and stepping in when necessary if it starts getting violent.
