A drug or alcohol intervention is a solution-oriented process where a licensed interventionist will sit down and try to persuade an addict or alcoholic to enter treatment for their substance abuse and in overcoming their addiction. Often times family and friends or others close to the individual will use the intervention to demonstrate the extent to which the addict or alcoholic’s behavior has impacted them negatively.
While there has been a long held belief that all addicts must hit “rock-bottom” before they are able to seek help, the current view in the treatment community supports the belief that family and friends should intervene early, before sustained damage occurs to the individual or anybody else.
When Do I Need An Intervention?
The Northern Arizona Center for Addiction knows that sometimes reaching out for help can be one of the hardest, yet most crucial steps, towards achieving long-term recovery from substance abuse. This is why we have teamed up with interventionists throughout the country in order to provide intervention services to families in need.
An experienced interventionist will be able to help the family by:
- Conducting a pre-intervention preparation.
- Serving as a moderator during the intervention.
- Provide assistance in transitioning individuals into rehab programs after successful interventions.
