An intervention is the procedure of educating the family members, friends and/or the employer to the individual who is in trouble with alcohol or drugs, and it is professionally managed. The rejection of its existence leads to drug or drinking dependence keeping people away from any attempt of returning to health.
People could be unaware of the consequences provoked by their actions, on all their private spheres and relationships. Intervention assists the individual to relate their addiction to alcohol and drugs to the issues in their life. It is the goal of the intervention to prepare the alcohol or drug user by presenting him or her with a structured opportunity and gets them to accept the help they need and make changes to their lives before things worsen.
The procedure of intervention involves educating and providing information for the friends and family to the individual.
It is very important for people to come together so they can exchange information and provide each other with support. When everyone is prepared, a gathering is planned with the addicted individual.
Having consultations with an addiction professional such as a counsellor for alcohol and addictions, social worker, psychologist, psychiatrist or an interventionist but certainly prove helpful when looking forward to organising an effective intervention.
An addiction professional specialising in substance use will consider the particular circumstances which have led in the use of drugs or alcohol and suggest the best approach while also providing guidance on the type of treatment and follow-up plan, which will suit the requirements to the individual.
It's always a good idea to have an expert on interventions present although many people carry out interventions without the help of an expert. It can happen that a specific intercession is conducted at the expert's workplace. If you are looking forward to staying on track with your loved one, it may become especially important for you to have a professional interventionist attend to the actual intervention if your loved one is displaying any of the following symptoms:
If you suspect that your loved, one may react violently or in a self-destructive manner, you will find it important to have a discussion with an intervention professional.
Definitely. The success rate of interventions is very high whenever they are directed by people who have received training and have experience carrying out interventions.
Absolutely. Even though positive results occur more frequently. An intervention may still cause a person to seek help later even if they initially rejected treatment during the intervention.
The method's effectiveness is achieved if performed by experts as confirmed by NCADD and our Affiliates. You can decide which people will be suited for attending the intervention with the help of the intervention expert. It is essential to ensure that the right people are involved in this essentially important stage to the success to the intervention.
