The most efficient way for convincing an addict to go to rehab (rehabilitation treatment programs) is to host an intervention. If you are concerned about someone in your life, someone who’s frighteningly changed on account of substance addiction, an intervention may be best way to get them help. It’s miserable to watch an addict struggle against dependency, particularly if you are a friend or loved one. It’s possible you could be asking yourself, “How can I help my family member get sober once more?” and “What is my role in getting my family member the help they need?” Typically, family members of an addict care deeply for this individual, but they are tired of being used, tired of being misled, tired of saying no, and just fed up with supporting the addict and others who may be codependent on the addict’s behavior. You can’t be scared of confrontation: don’t let fear prevent you from taking action. Contact us at (919) 804-1312 for more information about interventions and how to set one up.

What Is an Intervention?

An intervention is an extremely structured meeting that convinces an addict to participate in rehab for his or her issues. Individuals that are concerned about the addict, including family, loved ones, clergy members, and coaches, gather to confront the addict about the consequences of their drug abuse, and encourage them to agree to therapy. Those who initiate an intervention want the addict to get help and save their life, but these objectives are sometimes complicated by the fact that the addict doesn’t recognize that they have got a problem, or are in denial, or they’re unwilling to seek assistance all together. During an intervention it is important to address:

  • the addict’s bad behavior, how it has influenced the addict and their family members;
  • the therapy plan, along with objectives and instructions that the addict is expected to follow;
  • what each member of the intervention vows to do if the addict doesn’t go to a rehabilitation or detox centers treatment facility.

The four different sorts of interventions are simple, crisis, classical, and family system:

  • A simple intervention can actually be as simple as requesting that the target quit their behavior, and should always be attempted before any other, more complicated intervention techniques are tried.
  • In hazardous, life-threatening situations, such as reckless driving, violence, or intense drug addiction, it is best to use a crisis intervention.
  • Convincing a singular person to agree to enter rehab right away is the goal of a classical intervention.
  • Family system interventions widen the focus to all the family members, with the goal of getting them to stop behaviors that contribute to substance addiction and domestic violence; in these dysfunctional environments, everybody involved needs help changing their behaviors.

What Is the Difference Between an Intervention and Rehab?

Even though each is necessary for the recovery program intervention process, it is vital to keep in mind that there is a difference between an intervention and treatment. We recognize intervention as a procedure whereby friends and family persuade a family member, friend, or loved one to enter a rehab treatment facility, so that they are able to beat their substance abuse. Rehab is the best way for an addict to quit using drugs or alcohol, and an intervention is NOT rehabilitation, but a means to getting the addict into treatment. At our treatment center the addict learns about the disease of drug and alcohol abuse, how one can preserve long term recovery, and what triggers their abuse of alcohol and drugs. We urge following up an intervention right away with a rehab program, ideally on the same day.
