Do you have a loved one who could use drug or alcohol treatment, but he or she won’t agree to enter rehabilitation? These situations happen all of the time, but that doesn’t mean you should wait until they hit rock bottom before you check once again if they are ready for rehab. Their next overdose could be fatal, after all, depending on their substance of choice.
The answer? Intervention.
Interventions help bridge the gap between addiction and treatment. They don’t always work, but you might be surprised to learn that by allowing us to help and using a Professional Interventionist increases the success rate significantly.
Let Elevate Guide Your Intervention
If you’re having trouble getting your child or a loved one into rehab, call Elevate Addiction Services and tell us about your dilemma. We can send a professional intervention specialist to meet you at your home, get to know you and your family, and then perform the intervention for your loved one. It’s usually a one to two day process.
If you don’t live close to our Northern California facilities but are interested in sending your loved one here, we can refer you to a professional interventionist in your area, who will help connect your struggling loved one to our treatment. We typically treat people from all over the country.
How We Approach Drug Addiction Interventions
The point of an intervention is not to metaphorically throw stones at the loved one and air grievances. Instead, the goal is to show the individual how addiction affects the whole family.
This is why good intervention specialists take a family-centric approach to intervention. We make it a point to summon as many immediate and extended family members as possible for the intervention. Once everybody is finally gathered together, the intervention will provide some education on addiction, including letting the family know why the loved one hasn’t been able to get better on his or her own.
The interventionist’s role is to not let the conversation get sidetracked. The focus needs to remain on getting the loved one into treatment. An intervention can be an uncomfortable and even gut-wrenching process, but it’s the interventionist’s job to keep the momentum moving in a constructive direction.
Once the individual finally decides to accept treatment, the interventionist will let the family know how they can help and support the loved in the recovery process – during treatment and after. The recovery will fail if there’s a weak support system in place and if the family does not accept some degree of accountability in the ongoing process.
