planning & staging
Family interventions are extremely effective for getting reluctant loved ones to accept help. Staging an intervention is often an emotional process and preparation is essential in order to maintain focus on the desired outcome. A family intervention specialist will help you thoroughly plan in order to effectively help the alcoholic or drug abuser. We must be prepared to overcome anticipated objections and obstacles, and firmly establish a "care-frontation" atmosphere for the intervention.
please take note
If the loved one refuses substance abuse treatment the natural consequences of this refusal are then presented to them. This will often end the denial and refusal. If the person walks out of the intervention and rejects any form of treatment, the consequences immediately kick in. After a few days of living with the consequences of not getting help for their addiction, people sometimes "come back to the table" and agree to go to treatment.
