What are Drug & Alcohol Interventions
Drug and Alcohol interventions are specifically designed to help a loved one. An intervention is a process that sheds light on the destructive behaviours being exhibited by an individual. Moreover, the process addresses the effect those behaviours are having on everyone in their life. The concept is based upon non-violent communication. In other words, the process seeks to portray the harm that the actions of the addict are having on themselves and others.
Ideally, we want the process to open up a dialogue about getting help. More importantly, we want to put an end to the suffering and self-destruction the individual is inflicting on themselves and others. The desired outcome is for the addicted man, woman or teenager to attend an intensive inpatient treatment program.
Why seek a professional?
Have you tried setting boundaries, making demands, or offering suggestions to no avail? it might be time to turn to a proven strategy and work with a Professional Interventionist.
To clarify, the easiest people to lie to are those who want to believe us. Consequently, this means that an outside impartial party will be best equipped to cut to the chase.
An addicts’ behavior affects the family member or loved one and emotions become the forefront of the equation. A professional interventionist will construct a customized plan, implement the course of action, and see it through to completion. Do-it-yourself interventions can disintegrate in dramatic and rapid fashion.
When someone’s life is at stake, which is almost always the case when we’re dealing with alcohol or drug addiction, give yourself the best chance of success; trust someone with a proven track-record who facilitates interventions for a living
How to Know When an Intervention is Needed?
Addiction affects everyone differently. Firstly, some individuals become violent, criminally inclined, and unemployable. Secondly, some simply isolate, become quiet and go about their business. Most importantly and regardless of the addicted individuals’ behaviour patterns, there is always an impact on the loved ones. Also, the addicted individual takes a personal toll.
Above all, people who are living with addiction often see no way out. The idea of a radical disruption to their life is scary. If you’ve noticed significant changes in someone you know and there isn’t a reasonable explanation, there might be some sort of chemical dependence at play.
If softer methods haven’t worked, you shouldn’t have to simply accept the predicament that you are in. They should not have to accept the rut they are in.
In short, if you’re asking yourself the question “is an intervention necessary?” it most likely is.
