Millions of young adults around the country have used or abused drugs at some point in their life. Unfortunately, many young people require addiction treatment to get their lives back on track, though they may not want to admit it. As such, a family may need to perform an intervention to help their loved one get the treatment they need. Family intervention services can provide you and your loved ones with the tools you need to motivate your child to seek addiction treatment. To find family intervention services, please reach out to Southworth Associates today at (866) 460-9014.
What Should a Family Intervention Include?
In the time leading up to the intervention, an expert interventionists will meet with you and your family members. They will help you create a recovery team for your child or loved one. The recovery team may consist of family, friends, and other individuals who are invested in their life. The people you choose for this team should desire to demonstrate their love and concern for the addicted individual. They should also want to discuss the devastating effects that your loved one’s substance abuse has had on their lives.
It’s critical to remember that an intervention should not be a confrontation. This period of time isn’t a place for you to vent about how your child or loved one has hurt or angered you. Instead, this is a time for you to show your child that you care and therefore want them to seek help for their addiction. In an intervention, your loved one has the opportunity to reach out to seek help for the substance that they’re struggling with, allowing them to take the first steps to recovery.
What Do Family Intervention Services Do?
If you’ve noticed that your child or loved one has an addiction and feel that you need to have an intervention, family intervention services are an ideal next step. Our interventionist will work with you and your family members to manage each aspect of the intervention process. They will also help prepare the family and friends to prepare for the intervention and facilitate the process when the appointed day arrives. An interventionist will also discuss treatment options and financial situations before escorting your loved one to the chosen treatment center. They can also arrange for travel and hotel stays to ensure that your loved one does not have to face these challenges alone.
To make sure that the intervention will be successful, our team will often perform a range of services, including:
- Ensuring the preparation of the intervention participants by conducting pre-intervention sessions
- Directing and moderating the intervention to make sure that everyone stays on track
- Providing sober transport and escort services to transition the person into an addiction treatment program
Do You Need a Professional Interventionist?
You and your loved ones can indeed conduct an intervention without the help of professional interventionist services. However, there are many cases where professional family intervention services are necessary. For instance, it may be challenging to find a suitable place to hold the intervention. In such cases, an interventionist can assist in picking a neutral area. You should also choose to consult a professional if you believe that your loved one may have a violent reaction. We also recommend seeking professional services if your loved one has a history of suicidal thoughts or actions, or if they have a severe mental health condition.
In almost every situation, family intervention services are successful. In fact, when an experienced interventionist conducts the session, the person will commit to seeking addiction treatment in most cases.
