Drug and Alcohol Intervention
Drug and alcohol intervention prepares the family and develops a compassionate but determined plan to speak out loud, in truth, and to present an option for life. As with the lifestyle changes that occur in addiction, there comes a new way of thinking and reasoning. It is all about keeping the pain down and feeling better. The substance becomes his bodyguard against pain and discomfort.
Why not feel good? A new norm of living is quickly established with all the old loves, connections, attachments and principles compromised. The hardest thing for a loved one to understand and accept is, "If he really loved me, he would not do this."
We are located in the Philadelphia area and serve surrounding Bucks, Montgomery, Delaware and Chester counties. We have helped many families with a loved one who has suffered from drug and alcohol addiction with our intervention service. WE CAN HELP YOU!
Family Interventions that saves lives
The Intervention is a process, directed to create change in lives. It represents a courageous step, that you recognize that there is pain and that you can no longer tolerate or accept the distress and fear of losing the one you love. The initiation of intervention always begins with the formal Team process, directed to address the family's need to heal, to allow them to find their voice, and to lead the addict to the recovery process.
Members of the Team may be a parent(s), partners, sibling, relative, a best friend, sorority sisters/fraternity brothers, a member of the clergy, a family doctor or the person's pediatrician, an attorney, peer employee, supervisor, or any other person who is a stakeholder in offering help.
Many believe the goal of the intervention is to move the addict into treatment. This is all great, assuming the addict has reached the point to accept with true willingness, that he is moved by the love and support, and messages of hope from his loved ones.
The goals of the Team Day and Intervention are not only to move the addict into accepting help, but to bring awareness of the process to light, to stop the enabling process, to set boundaries, and to provide guidance and support to the family and Team so they also begin the healing process.
Families think that if their loved one just lands that perfect job or meets that special someone, things will get better. Addicts and alcoholics manipulate their families’ emotions to make their addiction possible—even at the expense of others they love.
Our Intervention Counselors will help you understand your loved one’s behaviors and how those behaviors are holding you emotionally hostage while the alcohol or drug abuser becomes a professional victim in order to continue with the addiction and avoid hitting bottom or wanting help.
Our intervention process goes far beyond convincing your loved one to agree to an addiction treatment program. We help to repair the situation by educating the family unit and ensuring long-term success for both the addict or alcoholic and the family.Every family we have worked with has something that can be changed drastically to give the addiction back to their loved one.
Many other interventionists, treatment centers, and therapists tell families they must wait for their loved one to hit rock bottom before anything can be done.
Not only is this extremely dangerous to tell someone…It is absolutely NOT TRUE. Waiting for your loved one to want help or hit rock bottom is never going to happen if the family is enabling in a way that prevents those things from occurring.
Getting The Process Started
Plan an Intervention
A spontaneous intervention is never a successful one. Plan ahead by selecting the invitees, location, date and time. It is also wise to hold a practice run beforehand.
Be sure to have multiple treatment options available ahead of time. Speak with the potential treatment facilities to ensure that are ready to take in your loved one. Visit the location and do your due diligence.
Plan transportation with a sober escort for your loved one. Pack a bag so your loved one can head to treatment as soon as the intervention is over. Time is of the essence. If too much time passes between the intervention and the start of treatment, your loved one may get cold feet or give in to temptations.
An intervention can be the first step to restoring your family back to health and happiness.
