Interventions and Holistic TherapyWhen confronted with a loved one that is trapped by drug addiction or alcohol addiction, it is very common to feel helpless with no place to turn for help. Having been through this on a personal level, there is a constant concern about their safety, health, and well-being. When the person that you once knew, is now gone and changed what do you do? Once an addiction to alcohol or drugs takes hold of someone’s life it can have devastating and life-changing consequences or even death. Holistic drug treatment programs can offer the solution that you have been looking for.
Starting a Professional Intervention
Do not wait for the addicted person to come to you for help. Waiting until a person comes to us for help, is an ideal situation that we all hope comes, but waiting for this to happen can cause more harm than good. Thinking that the addict will “wake up” and ask for help, is a way not to confront the situation at hand and results in more heartache and pain for both parties involved.
Together, with intervention and planning, we can get the person to have that moment of clear thinking that will bring them to acceptance of help. There is no gift greater than you can give than life itself. Our caring and genuinely concerned, holistic counselors are here to help you find an interventionist.
The Intervention process is the right type of intervention for someone who has lost their way. At one point in the addicted person’s life, there was a time that they were doing great in their well-being. Addiction to drugs or alcohol will start to separate them from all things that are good in their life including family, friends, and any other related activities. The individual starts to feel affected by all things and the many unresolved situations that cause feelings of remorse and guilt. These feelings of remorse, guilt, and hopelessness perpetuate the addiction to drugs or alcohol and block them from seeing the love from their family and friends that have never stopped. The feelings that the individual feels are not real feelings, they are fueled by drugs or alcohol and this is how they keep from handling life.
Our intake counselors and intervention specialists are waiting on your call 7 days a week 24 hours a day.
When is a good time to hold an intervention for a loved one?
A good time to consider an intervention for drug addiction or alcoholism is when their world is slowly being taken apart or perhaps they lose their job or are always having money problems, these are all warning signs of something under the surface is going on in their life. When the family discovers that there is a chance to bring them back before it is too late, an intervention is needed. Speaking with an intervention provider and specialist can help you learn at the least that there is hope.
A family intervention can and will bring the family back together.
Once the interventionist gets to the first meeting place, usually the family home, the interventionist gives his own testimony and the family begins to feel a sense of hope and empowerment. It is then, that the hard work starts, with helping the family be able to be the cause over the situation in such a manner that the loved one they are helping, does not feel forced or trapped. The best possible outcome for a professional intervention is for them to feel that they can be better than they are now, and they need help to find their way back. Once the family starts to read their letters and talk to them, the addicted person will start to understand more clear-minded. After we have handled all the objections, one at a time, there is always a long pause as a sense of relief passes through them and this is the moment where we can see the individual is willing to make a change.
Call to speak to one of our professional family interventionists today. Our certified interventionist staff will find the closest and best fit for the person in need of help. Someone that has things in common with the person that the intervention is for. We will also discuss how to handle the substance abuser until we are ready to get the intervention scheduled.
The plan is set into motion to reach out to as many of the family and friends as possible and set up a face-to-face meeting day. This what is called a pre-intervention is so we can make sure that there is no antagonism and hard feelings that can get in the way of a successful intervention. At the pre-intervention, we will set up the rules that we will develop and follow during the intervention. This also includes being able to voice thoughts and worries regarding your loved one’s addiction to drugs or alcohol.
Training and communication skills are taught as well during the Pre-intervention day. Interventions are always held in a caring and loving manner. When a person has an addiction problem, they have already torn themselves down so they need to be built back up. The intervention’s purpose is to make the individual feel love, propose and support. At this point, they will be taken to the facility of your choice within the next 24 hours.
