Our treatment center recognizes that the most effective way of getting an addict into rehab (rehabilitation treatment programs) is to stage an intervention. For over a decade, we have been helping men and women in the Birmingham, Alabama area overcome addictions to drugs and alcohol
If there is somebody in your life who you believe is hooked on drugs or alcohol, someone whose behavior and attitude have changed because of their addiction, an intervention is a positive way to start helping them recover. Addiction is frightening for both the addict and the addict’s friends and family. It’s possible you might be asking yourself, “How can I help my loved one get healthy again?” and “What should my role be in getting my loved one help?” It is frustrating to be used by the addict and having to watch on as other people encourage the addict with codependent behavior. You can’t be afraid of confrontation: don’t let fear prevent you from taking action.
An intervention is a highly organized event that convinces an addict to participate in therapy for their problems. Individuals who are concerned about the addict, such as family members, loved ones, clergy members, and coaches, come together to confront the addict regarding the consequences of their drug dependency and urge them to seek rehab. The objective of an intervention is to present the addict with a chance to get help and save their life, even though the process may be complicated by the fact that the addict doesn’t realize that they’ve got an issue, they are in denial, or they are unwilling to get help. During an intervention it is essential to talk about certain issues:
- the addict’s unhealthy behavior, how it has influenced the addict and their family members
- the treatment plan along with objectives and guidelines that the addict is expected to follow
- what every person will do if the addict is not going to enter a treatment program of some kind
There are four different sorts of interventions: simple, crisis, classical, and family system.
- A simple intervention is literally “simply” asking the target to quit their life-threatening behavior, and before any other, more complicated intervention strategies are attempted, a simple intervention should be attempted.
- In situations of hazardous and precarious behavior, like reckless driving, violence, or intense drug use, it’s best to attempt a crisis intervention.
- Convincing a particular person to agree to go into rehabilitation immediately is the objective of a classical intervention.
- In a family system intervention, the focus is on persuading the entire family to modify their behaviors, especially in situations of addiction and family violence, which create dysfunctional environments.
What’s the Difference Between an Intervention and Rehab?
Although each is necessary for the recovery process, it’s vital to take into account that there is a difference between an intervention and rehab. intervention is a procedure whereby friends and family persuade a family member, friend, or loved one to go to a rehab facility so that they are able to beat their substance abuse. An intervention is NOT rehab, but a method of getting the addict to rehab. Therapy during rehab is the most reliable way to get an addict to quit using drugs or alcohol. At our rehabilitation, the addict is taught about the disease of drug and alcohol dependency, what triggers their use of drugs or alcohol, and how to manage long term recovery. We strongly urge following up an intervention straight away with a rehab program, preferably on that very same day.
We Can Help!
Watching a loved one suffer and battle with substance dependency is upsetting and frightening. Usually, an intervention is an involved, planned event that combines the efforts of friends and family, but sometimes it is as easy as asking the individual to just stop their habits.
