Alcoholism is a disease. Without the proper treatment, this disease can do so much damage. When a loved one is an alcoholic, seeking help can seem overwhelming. An alcohol intervention is the first step towards getting your loved one the help he or she needs. A successful intervention can lead to a sober life.
Successful intervention is all about preparation. It is important to be prepared to reflect on your relationship to the alcoholic. Your bond will be the key to effective communication. With the help of an experienced interventionist and proper preparation, you can practice how to effectively communicate during the intervention. The intervention specialists at Substance Intervention have first-hand experience. We provide support to those planning the intervention so that everyone is on the same page. In addition, we prepare you for the possible outcomes of an intervention. We can help guide you through the process.
How to Plan for an Intervention
Each of our interventions starts with a phone consultation because we must get to know you and your family. This helps us determine how we should structure the intervention. We plan a Family Day if we determine that we are a good fit for your family. Family Day occurs the day before the intervention. During this day, we work to understand everyone’s relationship with the alcoholic. Then we explain how each family member should participate in the intervention.
Developing a Support System
Alcoholism has the ability to make one feel helpless. Many people lose touch with the individuals who are most important to them. However, a strong support system can help an alcoholic become sober. When someone suffering from alcoholism has already given up on him or herself, they need you to lift them back up. Family and friend support is crucial for a successful intervention. A person abusing alcohol is already suffering, and usually, the people that can effectively ease the pain are family and friends.
Substance Intervention is dedicated to helping alcoholics and other substance abusers find the road to recovery. We understand that a successful alcohol abuse intervention results in the alcoholic going to rehab. A successful alcohol intervention might be your loved one’s only chance at a sober life. We are here to help. Our goal is to show you how to harness the power of your family bond to encourage rehab.
