Intensive Family Intervention Program

Intervention: Support for Families of Addicts

Drug and alcohol addiction occurs in the best of families. At Avatar Alcohol and Drugs Recovery Center, we believe the intervention is as much for the family as it is for the addict. We assign a dedicated case manager to identify and understand individual’s unique addiction problems. We begin with comprehensive medically assisted drug detoxification treatments. Our personalized treatment programs aim at cleansing the individuals body from toxic substances and regain their psychosomatic fitness. Once we have the client detoxed from the substance, we can begin to repair the destructive behavior affecting the client and their loved ones. Regardless of the substance use disorder, a person is suffering from, the common denominator for the addiction is the repression of feelings and the escape from reality that they are seeking.

The Family’s Role in Addiction Treatment

Our trained Addiction Counselors consult with family members whose loved one denies an addiction to alcohol and drugs. The primary goal of an intervention is to get assistance for a client who needs help but doesn’t necessarily want help. The critical component to any intervention is proper planning to ensure your family team agrees, decides on specific consequences, and resolves any issues before the intervention meeting with the substance abuser. Intervention usually comes at the stage when the addiction consumes an individual, impacting their wellbeing or a life-threatening situation, emotions are running high, and your family team needs to choose their words carefully to prevent the addict from fleeing the intervention. An intervention should never be done last minute, without a detailed and agreed upon plan of action for the addict if they choose to accept the family’s help.

If your loved one has been resistant to change and their substance abuse has caused negative consequences that you are concerned about, a family intervention may be the only way to get them to agree to get help.
