Interventions are confrontations that are brought together by an addict’s support network with the help of a trained professional. Interventionists make a career out of helping social networks convince addicts to seek treatment, and they undergo extensive training in order to be the most effective catalyst for change that they can be.
Most interventionists are recovering addicts themselves, so they know how to persuade an otherwise reluctant addict to receive services. An interventionist will guide a family group or other support network through what to say in order to convince an addict to immediately enter a rehabilitation program that the interventionist will have hand selected before staging the intervention.
Interventions save lives by offering solutions to people lost to drug and alcohol dependency
Most of the time, the addict’s support network has already tried getting them services with little success. The addict is often reluctant because they do not realize the severity of their problem, or they think it’s something that they can overcome alone. An interventionist knows how to approach this, and organizes those wanting to intervene on the addict’s life in a way that shows the addict that there is in fact help and support for them.
An interventionist will have those attending the intervention write up brief letters stating exactly why the addict is important to them, how drugs or alcohol have changed the addict, and the things that they hope the addict will achieve in their lifetime. These letters are presented in a nonconfrontational matter, and an interventionist is careful not to let an intervention turn into a roast or a chance for angry people to spew their hate for the addict onto the addict. The interventionist keeps things positive, while also allowing those at the intervention to confront the addict with the consequences the addict will incur if they don’t go and get the help they so desperately need. Things like withdrawing access to a vehicle or ending financial support are frequently topics used to coerce an addict into accepting immediate help
Interventions are highly successful at convincing an addict to seek help
90% of staged interventions end in the addict accepting the help being offered to them. This is because an interventionist knows how to level with an addict, and speak to them in a manner that makes sense and doesn’t degrade their worth as a human. Oftentimes, when families or friends try to confront an addict, they are driven by anger and disappointment and end up making the addict defensive and angry. An interventionist is careful to make sure this doesn’t happen.
An addict that is the focal point of an intervention needs to be reminded that people do care about them and they are not alone. Often, addicts feel like no one understands what they’re going through, and an intervention is the perfect opportunity to let the addict know that people understand the trauma they’re experiencing and that there are professionals willing to help. Accredited and trained interventionists are skilled at navigating the course of a conversation toward an addict, and the addict is told that the ultimate goal of the intervention is to get them to accept help immediately. Most decide to accept that help.
With Outpatient treatment a patient comes to a rehabilitation facility to get daily care. The patient is able to stay in their household. The addiction treatment will take place at health clinics, counselor's offices, neighborhood health centers or in residential programs with outpatient services.
Inpatient treatment is focused on medically supervised detoxification. This is the perfect place to start the recovery process. Following the detox process, it is recommended that patients seek out further treatment. Detox without further treatment is often not enough, but detoxing is an important step!
This is perfect for client that would benefit from a mix of inpatient and outpatient care. In this situation patients live in residential homes and are taken to get treatment daily. This gives patients a new routine to build on so they can adjust to their new life in the future.
