Alcohol and Drug Addiction Intervention
Interventions Can Help Start the Recovery Process
An alcohol or drug addiction intervention is a structured process where family members, friends, and other concerned individuals (i.e. coworkers, employers, pastors, etc.) confront the alcoholic or addict about the consequences of their addiction and the impact that it has had on their lives. An intervention is a carefully planned process that is designed to break through the denial of the alcoholic or addict and motivate them to accept treatment.
- Provides each person an opportunity to give specific examples of how the addict’s behaviors have affected them.
- Provides each person an opportunity to clearly state why they want their loved one to get help.
- Presents the addict with a prearranged treatment plan that specifies the when, where, and how treatment will begin.
- Provides each person an opportunity to outline what they will do if their loved one refuses to accept treatment.
