In some cases, the person suffering with the disease of addiction to alcohol or drugs is in denial about the severity of the problem or unwilling to acknowledge and accept the need for help. Inpatient treatment is entirely voluntary and requires the consent of the patient to be admitted. If you would like to explore intervention as a possible tool in helping your loved one agree to inpatient treatment, intervention services are available through outside professionals. Our Admissions Department can provide Intervention contact names and information.
An intervention is:
A deliberate, planned process to introduce a change to someone’s thoughts/behaviors.
A non-threatening method of highlighting self-destructive behavior and the effects of that behavior.
(Usually) several people joining together to discuss the destructive behavior with the person engaging in the behavior.
Entered into with the goal of the self-destructive person listening and eventually accepting the need to change and get help.
Interventions can be extremely difficult to do successfully without guidance, and intervention professionals are available to assist you in bringing your loved one to the realization that they need to seek treatment. An interventionist will help you select which type of intervention best meets your, and your loved one’s, needs from the various intervention models and methods that exist.
Our admissions team can assist you. While we do not have interventionists on staff, we can provide contact information for interventionists with whom we have worked and who may meet your financial and geographic criteria.
