You’ve tried everything before, so how can an interventionist help? For the family member who has struggled at the throes of having an alcoholic wife, sister, daughter, son, mother or father, this is a normal feeling; why bother? A solution is here!
An interventionist is going to:
- Help you find the individuals most likely to help influence him or her to obtain therapy in the addict’s life. The interventionist can also assist you to consider those who will need to step away from the intervention and they are similarly interested in the addiction to the abuser.
- Provide you and your loved ones with education and preparation to ensure that the operation is successful. This means educating you on what can or may not happen when the abuser is faced with recovery, offering coping options for the addict’s friends and family to ensure a good coping net for the user, and educating the addict about his or her addiction and the consequences of continuing drug abuse.
- Facilitate the actual intervention process by serving as an independent and competent third person to assist with the case.
