Why You Need A Professional Interventionist
Many times people, who want to help an addicted friend or family member, consider staging an intervention on their own. This is a very risky thing to do, and doing so can actually drive an addict deeper into their addiction. For an Intervention to be successful, the addict has to confronted without hurt or anger and with a skilled interventionist can help prepare family and friends to handle the intervention in such as way that does not pray on the addicts’ feelings of guilt, fear, or anger. Through a professional intervention, we can create a successful opportunity for your loved one to seek immediate treatment before it is too late.
Staging An Intervention
When staging an Intervention the interventionist will first meet with family members and friends two or three times before the intervention takes place, and will explain how an intervention is done, and the role each person in the intervention plays. Following the interventionist, instructions are vital to the successful outcome of the intervention.
The interventionist will also do a follow up with friends and family members once the intervention has been completed and the addict agrees to treatment.
One of the key components of an intervention in Sarasota, Florida and all other places as well, is to overcome the denial of an addict and have a volunteer to accept immediate treatment. This means that prior to the intervention friends and family need to have a drug or alcohol treatment facility ready to accept the addict immediately upon their agreement to seek treatment. The family, with the help of the interventionist, usually chooses the facility and makes the arrangement for the addict to be admitted.
You do have to remember that drug and alcohol intervention is only the first step in helping an addict. Often times family and friends may need to seek help in learning how to change their behaviors in order to help the newly recovered addict remain sober or drug-free. In addition, the newly recovered addict should have available to him, the help and support he needs to remain sober or drug-free.
