Get Addiction Intervention
If there is someone in your life who you think may have an addiction to drugs or alcohol, there is a way you can help. Interventions are one of the greatest techniques for getting a person who is addicted to a substance into a rehabilitation (rehab) treatment program. Watching a person struggle and fight can be a torturous process, particularly if you are a family member. You might be asking, “How can I help my loved one get sober again,” and “What’s my part in getting my friend help?” Don’t let fear stop you from taking action. Call our intervention services at 626-602-2966 for more information about interventions and how to set one up.
What Is an Intervention?
An intervention is an event that is well-organized and set up to convince an addict to enter a rehab facility. Family, friends, clergy members, instructors or other people who are concerned about the addict join forces to meet with the addicted person. They then discuss the effects of the addicted person’s actions on loved ones and inspire them to agree to treatment. Most often the addict will either not realize there is an issue, be in denial or unwilling to get help. However, the objective of an intervention is to provide the addict with the possibility to change or even save their life. There are a few of topics that need to be discussed in an intervention:
- specific examples of unhealthy behavior and how it has affected the addict and their loved ones.
- the treatment plan along with objectives and instructions that the addict is expected to observe.
- what every participant will do if the addict will not enter a rehab facility of some kind.
There are four different types of interventions: simple, crisis, classical, and family system.
A simple intervention is literally asking the person to quit their life-threatening behavior. Before more sophisticated intervention strategies are tried, a simple intervention should be attempted.
A crisis intervention is to be used in extremely dangerous, risky situations, such as reckless driving, violence or severe dependency.
Persuading a person to agree to enter rehab immediately is the goal of a classical intervention.
family system intervention
The entire family is the focus of a family system intervention. Socially dysfunctional environments are created in situations of addiction and family violence. Therefore it is vital that everyone involved agrees to end their behaviors.
The Difference Between an Intervention and Treatment
It is important to understand the difference between intervention and treatment. However, each is required for a successful recovery. Our program is designed to persuade the addict to agree to enter treatment, which is NOT the same thing as therapy. Alone, an intervention will not be enough to make a person stop using drugs or alcohol. For the best results, the addicted person should learn about the disease of drug and alcohol abuse. He will also learn how he can sustain long–term recovery. Finally, he will be able to understand what triggers their drug and alcohol abuse. For the absolute best chance of success, the specialists at the center suggest that an addict enter rehab after going through detox.
