Do you have a loved one who doesn’t want to go to treatment?
Drug addiction and alcoholism can be extremely hard to handle, both physically and mentally. People seeking treatment are always asking the same question: “where do I start?” An intervention could be the first step to what you and or your loved one are looking for and can help get the ball rolling for recovery. A drug or alcohol intervention is a deeply involved 2 or 3 day process where we empower, educate, and change the dynamics within a family, as well as guide a drug or alcohol user into an honest desire to enter treatment.
Who Performs the Intervention?
A well-trained, highly certified Interventionist will be there to help you and your loved one get back on track. Professional Intervention Providers are not someone who just got out of recovery. An Interventionist is recommending your treatment because they:
- Have conducted hundreds of Interventions.
- Have a 24 hour availability even after the intervention.
- Are licensed, and certified.
- Have the ability to provide ongoing services even beyond interventions. They would be thrilled to help with Case Management, Drug Monitoring, Sober Coaching, Family Reintegration, and Treatment Referral.
- Have professional materials, handbooks and literature for family members demonstrating standard practices for a long-term recovery plan.
- Focus on getting to the root of the problem and do more than ‘just get them to rehab’.
Intervention Services Inc.
Intervention Services is the company we refer to in the event of a loved one who is unwilling to go to treatment. An intervention is a process in which the interventionist teaches the family, and assists them in convincing an addict to seek treatment.
If you’re concerned someone you love may overdose, or need to be hospitalized soon, Recovery Restart has programs for you. Crisis intervention is one of the most valuable services that we can offer a family. We know the kind of difficulties facing addicts and their loved ones. When someone’s drug use is out of control, it negatively affects everyone around them. This behavior must be stopped and rehabilitated before it is too late. Intervention services are designed to help people when they need it most: when there are no other options. Heavy substance abusers cannot see the terrible impact of their actions, and many will still be in denial about their addiction. These situations often require a professionally-mediated intervention to see success. The Crisis Intervention services at Recovery Restart can give you the tools to put your loved one on the road to recovery. Intervention Services can also perform crisis interventions, as well as any other type of intervention you could need for any type of addiction.
When To Intervene
Crisis intervention is the type of service to use when someone’s life is in immediate danger of becoming a complete disaster. This means loss of relationships, discontinued employment, legal problems, and even death. The disease is so powerful that addicts will willingly but witlessly self-destruct, becoming so deluded that they can’t even realize that their future is hanging by a thread. Not only do they destroy themselves, but they hurt everyone around them. Don’t wait until it is too late. As long as we can reach the patient, there is still time for crisis intervention.
Addiction is a progressive disorder. That means that over time, it can only get worse. Like any other disease, it needs proper treatment before it becomes a crisis. You don\’t need to hit rock bottom before getting help. Drug abuse starts as a “good time”, then becomes “fun with consequences”, finally turning into “just consequences” and misery for everyone involved. When abuse begins to border addiction, intervention is necessary. Below is a list of warning signs of addiction:
Nine Signs of Addiction
- Does the person use drugs on a daily or weekly basis?
- Do they try to minimize or lie about how much they use?
- Does this person lie, cheat, or steal to acquire drugs?
- Have they had trouble with law enforcement?
- Are they using more drugs than they used to?
- Has drug use impacted their family life or job?
- Is drug use taking up progressively more money and time?
- Has the person quit in the past, only to pick up again?
- Do you think drugs are becoming a problem?
If you answered yes to even one question, the caring professionals at Recovery Restart would be happy to talk with you about an assessment. If you answered yes to two or more, crisis intervention may be necessary. It doesn’t have to take jails, hospitals, and death to make someone realize that their addiction is out of control. It only takes you, with a little help from Recovery Restart.
