Will you believe that intervention is the easy part of recovery in reality? That’s because resistance from the abuser or alcoholic normally follows until therapy starts.
They could be in recovery for two or three weeks, where they feel and look healthier. They could be under the assumption that early on they should leave the treatment facility and do the rehab job at home. Letting them leave early is never a good idea.
That is only one of the many challenges to recovery that the family will face. The interventionist will help train the family and brace them for these kinds of pleas and inevitable failures of healing.
