We Can Help You Plan, Stage, and Carry Out an Intervention
As you know, most addicts under the spell of alcohol or drugs probably won’t ask for help on their own — part of the illness is the inability to recognize the need for help. But there is something you can do.
Through our professional drug and alcohol addiction intervention services, our trained counselors can help you and your family hold an alcohol or drug addiction intervention in one of our Houston, Texas facilities, or in one of the rehabilitation centers in Pasadena, Clear Lake, Pearland, Houston, Dickinson, or The Woodlands.
Through family intervention, continued family participation, and professional substance abuse and addiction guidance, you can help your loved one begin the road to recovery today.
Helping a loved one who is battling any addiction is difficult. A direct, honest discussion is sometimes all they need to kickstart their journey to recovery.
The goal of an intervention for drug addicts is to help your loved one recognize the reality and extent of their addiction so that they realize it is a problem for the ones they love, and they agree to get treatment. It is an opportunity for friends and family to do something constructive for the addict, rather than being helpless, passive, or enabling the individual’s addiction.
With the help of drug intervention specialists at Bay Area Recovery, your loved one will have a team of professionals who will offer constant support on their path to sobriety.
An intervention is a carefully planned process that ends with confronting a loved one about the effects of their addiction. A poorly thought-out intervention could make things worse because your loved one might feel threatened, feel alienated, or immediately say no treatment. Usually, an addiction intervention involves the following course of action:
While it is not required, we highly recommend getting help from a licensed counselor because:
For these reasons, it is important to have professionals helping with the intervention. If you’re planning a drug or alcohol intervention in Houston, the experienced counselors at Bay Area Recovery Center can provide support and guidance during this milestone to help them get and stay sober.
As the best interventionists, we provide a systematic approach that helps addicts truly recognize crossroads and empowers them to be strong for their loved ones. It will be important for you to stop rescuing and enabling the addict, this only allows him or her to continue current behaviors. This may be difficult, but it is a necessary part of the process.
We’ll help you gather friends and family to support the intervention, time it when the addict is sober (if possible), and explain clearly what the drug abuse has caused and what you will do if he or she doesn’t get help. Remember, if addicts could stop on their own, they would have already. This is your opportunity to be actively involved in the recovery process.
Every situation is unique and different. There is no manual for an intervention. The best advice we can give you is to be black and white about it. Addicts don’t want to talk about the black and white issues – they only want to talk about the gray areas in between.
Be straightforward. Be direct. Be black and white. Don’t be afraid to talk about it. Tell them to get help – period.
We can tell you from experience that they’ll usually get help. In fact, we’ve found it’s much more difficult to convince family members to be black and white about the issues than it is to convince addicts to get help.
It’s okay if they get mad; that means they are going to make a change. They may put up a fight, but probably not a very good one. They are waiting for someone to say no to them and make it stick.
Once you hold the alcohol or drug addiction intervention, the best thing you can do is seek counseling for both you and the addict. They have to choose to recover on their own, but you also have to know how to support them throughout the recovery and afterward.
At Bay Area Recovery, we’ll assist you in providing continuous support for your loved one. You will have a group of counselors by your side; we won’t let you handle it by yourself.
