An intervention is a an organized approach, typically coordinated by family and friends with the support of an interventionist, to get their loved one who is abusing alcohol and/or drugs into treatment.
The guidance and direction of a intervention professional is critical. A seasoned interventionist knows which techniques work best for varying situations and can help family and friends to communicate and listen more effectively during the intervention process. Advance preparation is a key element along with choosing who will participate in the intervention.
There are many types of interventions and a professional can best help in determining which type is appropriate for your situation. Intervention is a serious step and every situation is different. We strongly encourage you to work with an intervention professional for assistance. Should you be in need of referrals, we can assist you by offering contact information for a number of qualified addiction interventionists.
