A Way to Getting the Addict to Treatment02The most effective approach for getting an addict into rehab (rehabilitation treatment programs) is to host an intervention. If there’s somebody in your life who you guess is addicted to drugs or alcohol, somebody who isn’t how you remember on account of their addiction, an intervention is a great place to begin helping them into recovery. Addiction is frightening for both the addict and the addict’s friends and family. You may be asking yourself, “How can I help my family member get healthy again,” and “What’s my role in getting my friend help?” Friends and family members care deeply for the one who is affected by dependency, however it can wear them down to have to say ‘no’ all the time. It’s irritating to feel used by the addict, and having to watch on as people encourage the addict with codependent behavior. You can’t be frightened of confrontation: fear can’t prevent you from taking action.

What Is an Intervention?

An intervention is a counseling tool used to encourage a drug or alcohol addict to agree to rehab and treatment for his or her addiction. An intervention is directed and guided by an interventionist, and an intervention’s participants include the addict, family members, friends, and loved ones of the addict. Typically, people begin an intervention because the addict is unresponsive to pleas, unwilling to take part in rehab programs, or is in complete denial of their addiction. The interventionist, family members, and friends will have to come to a decision whether or not to inform the addict before of the intervention. The purpose of an intervention is to make the addict appreciate how serious the issue is, and then appeal to them to get treatment at a rehab treatment center. It sounds direct and easy, but Intervention Services knows from experience that intervention is just a first step.

What Is the Difference Between Intervention and Treatment?

During an intervention, an addict’s family and friends attempt to convince the addict to go into a rehabilitation facility (rehab), so that they may be able to receive treatment and overcome addiction. The recovery process starts in rehab. An intervention isn’t treatment. Treatment is where the addict is educated about the disease of addiction, learns how to fight their addiction and behavior, and acquires the abilities required to maintain sustained sobriety.

Who Is an Interventionist?

An interventionist is the person who guides and directs the actual intervention meeting. Intervention Services strongly suggests family members and friends to seek a qualified, experienced interventionist in the event that they plan on hosting an intervention for their friend or loved one. Firstly, members of the family and friends are often too involved with the situation; they have trouble discussing their hope to get their friend into treatment, because their feelings, emotions, and thoughts are too extreme or complicated. To prevent miscommunication, the interventionist asks contributors to write down a letter to, or make notes to be read out loud to the addict. Letters can include encouragement to seek treatment, emotional pleas, and even ultimatums relating to rehab and sobriety.

Interventionists have a deep understanding of the disease, and are able to effectively communicate with both friends and members of the family, and the abuser. Most of the time, he or she is an addict in recovery, and is able to bring a new element to the discussion. Interventionists are able to communicate efficiently among the addict and his or her friends and family. Intervention Center suggests experienced, qualified interventionists who are registered with the Association of Intervention Specialists and have references to talk with. To find an interventionist or to speak with somebody about interventions, call Intervention Services at 866-382-7393. There are trained counselors and consultants available 24 hours a day.

How and When to Act

Intervention Services has the knowledge and tools that can assist in initiating an intervention for a family member you are concerned about. It is common to feel uncertain or concerned about confronting a friend, and you might have questions regarding whether you should, or when might be the ideal time. Keep in mind that addicts live dangerous lives as a result of the people they hang around with, and the risky environments they visit looking for drugs or alcohol. Waiting too long for an intervention may lead to worsening health, hospitalization, or even death, so Intervention Services recommends beginning an intervention as soon as you become aware of the problem.
