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.
