Interventions Can Help Your Family
The most effective approach for getting an addict into rehab (rehabilitation treatment programs) is to host an intervention. If there’s somebody in your life who you guess is addicted to drugs or alcohol, somebody who isn’t how you remember on account of their addiction, an intervention is a great place to begin helping them into recovery.
Addiction is frightening for both the addict and the addict’s friends and family. You may be asking yourself, “How can I help my family member get healthy again,” and “What’s my role in getting my friend help?” Friends and family members care deeply for the one who is affected by dependency, however it can wear them down to have to say ‘no’ all the time. It’s irritating to feel used by the addict, and having to watch on as people encourage the addict with codependent behavior. You can’t be frightened of confrontation: fear can’t prevent you from taking action.
What is an Intervention?
An intervention is a counseling tool used to encourage a drug or alcohol addict to agree to rehab and treatment for his or her addiction. An intervention is directed and guided by an interventionist, and an intervention’s participants include the addict, family members, friends, and loved ones of the addict. Typically, people begin an intervention because the addict is unresponsive to pleas, unwilling to take part in rehab programs, or is in complete denial of their addiction. The interventionist, family members, and friends will have to come to a decision whether to inform the addict before of the intervention. The purpose of an intervention is to make the addict appreciate how serious the issue is, and then appeal to them to get an interventionist is the person who guides and directs the actual intervention meeting. We suggest that family members and friends seek a qualified, experienced interventionist in the event that they plan on hosting an intervention for their friend or loved one. Firstly, members of the family and friends are often too involved with the situation; they have trouble discussing their hope to get their friend into treatment, because their feelings, emotions, and thoughts are too extreme or complicated. To prevent miscommunication, the interventionist asks contributors to write down a letter to, or make notes to be read out loud to the addict. Letters can include encouragement to seek treatment, emotional pleas, and even ultimatums relating to rehab and sobriety.
Interventionists have a deep understanding of the disease and can effectively communicate with both friends and members of the family, and the abuser. Most of the time, he or she is an addict in recovery, and is able to bring a new element to the discussion. Interventionists are able to communicate efficiently among the addict and his or her friends and family.

How and When to Act
We have the knowledge and tools that can assist in initiating an intervention for a family member you are concerned about. It is common to feel uncertain or concerned about confronting a friend, and you might have questions regarding whether you should, or when might be the ideal time. Keep in mind that addicts live dangerous lives as a result of the people they hang around with, and the risky environments they visit looking for drugs or alcohol. Waiting too long for an intervention may lead to worsening health, hospitalization, or even death, so we recommend beginning an intervention as soon as you become aware of the problem.

During an intervention, an addict’s family and friends attempt to convince the addict to go into a rehabilitation facility (rehab), so that they may be able to receive treatment and overcome addiction. The recovery process starts in rehab. An intervention isn’t treatment. Treatment is where the addict is educated about the disease of addiction, learns how to fight their addiction and behavior, and acquires the abilities required to maintain sustained sobriety.

Outpatient treatment is part-time, usually between 10 to 12 hours a week, meaning that the recovering user comes to the facility, but they do not stay in the facility. These programs usually run between three months to one year. Ultimately, outpatient treatment is right for those who have more mild addictions.
Inpatient treatment means the person stays at a facility for a period of time - usually between three weeks and six months. While staying at the facility, they undergo intensive treatment. Inpatient treatment has a higher success rate than outpatient treatment, but it is also more expensive. Further, inpatient treatment interrupts daily life. Ultimately, inpatient treatment is especially effective for those who have undergone serious addictions.
Residential treatment means that patients live in a residence with other patients. Treatment staff transport the patients to the treatment center each day. In this way, they experience the benefits of both inpatient and outpatient treatment. Residential treatment is best for those who want to keep their treatment and living areas separate, but they still want to separate themselves from their toxic environments.
