When your loved one is battling an addiction to drugs, alcohol, or specific processes, the situation can be stressful and heartbreaking. Their substance or process addiction may have led to financial or legal difficulties. However, in many cases, they may be reluctant to get the care and support that they need to recover. In such cases, it may be time to stage an intervention. This step is a major decision for each person involved, so it is critical that you choose the best interventionist for your needs. If you have questions about staging an intervention or our intervention services, please reach out to Southworth Associates today at (866) 460-9014.
What are Intervention Services?
Most people do not like change, and people who are battling substance addictions and process addictions may be battling fear and denial. With our intervention services, you implement a process that we’ve structured to help your loved one recognize the signs of addiction. Once they’ve recognized the problem, they are more likely to agree to seek help.
An intervention is a non-threatening process that focuses on your loved one’s long term well-being and recovery from addiction. This process can be somewhat delicate, so having an expert interventionist at your side can be extremely beneficial.
Choosing an Interventionist
Choosing the right interventionist for your need is a critical decision that you should not take lightly. You need to find an interventionist who can choose effective approaches and words to break down your loved one’s barriers. This method will ensure that they understand that your loved one will understand the danger and need for treatment.
Finding the right interventionist doesn’t have to be difficult. First, you need to determine how quickly the interventionist can create an initial meeting. You don’t want to have any delays because addiction can quickly lead to health risks. You also want to determine what the interventionist’s credentials are. Professional interventionists should have specific certifications for their state and country. If you’re looking at international intervention, you also want to make sure that your interventionist is certified in your country.
It would be best if you also determined what model the interventionist will use. For instance, at Southworth Associates, we use three unique intervention methods. These methods include:
- ARISE intervention model: A collaborative process that reduces the blame and guilt of addiction and allows each person to focus on the individual getting treatment.
- JOHNSON intervention model: This model compassionately confronts the person battling addiction with the possible consequences of addiction.
- SYSTEMIC intervention model: This model addresses the addiction respectfully and lovingly. This system allows the patient to receive firm coaching rather than a hostile confrontation.
Next, you should ask the interventionist what steps they will take to ensure that the intervention will be successful. These steps can be crucial to your loved one’s long-term recovery. They can also significantly benefit you and the rest of your family.
Last but certainly not least, it’s critical to determine what treatment center the intervention services will work with after the intervention. Finding the right treatment center can lead to your loved one’s long-term recovery.
