Intervention is the first step towards healing and often times is initiated by family and friends. At NRWC, we understand the stress, anxiety, and desperation that families face when loving a person with addictive behavior. Interventions are intended to create a safe and compassionate approach to individuals. With the help of mental health and addiction professionals you can create a compassionate experience to intervene on the destructive behavior of your loved one.
Families can express their emotions, fears, and love for someone with a gentle and open-minded approach. It is important to understand that an intervention is not about expressing how someone’s behavior is affecting the family, the severity of their drug use, or past harms. It is not a confrontation of their behavior, what they’ve done wrong, why they need to stop. This is an opportunity to express your unconditional love for their suffering family or friend.
We educate families on how to properly communicate with someone living with an addiction. The appropriate language often influences people to seek the help they need. Most of the time, our clients do not see how their behavior is disguising their personality, and their ability to be present in a world that only wishes to love them. Successful interventions relay that the person they love and care for is lost in their addiction. It is a direct appeal to the true-self that is buried beneath their addiction.
A successful intervention will offer an immediate solution to the person living with an addiction. There should be no room for considerations, since an emotional appeal can disintegrate when a person becomes obsessive about their addiction. If this occurs, they may decide against the results of the conversation. Working with an intervention specialist from NRWC will ensure availability for a treatment plan in our recovery community. We will arrange an appropriate time and place for the meeting and have a reliable plan of action to follow up the intervention. Most importantly, our trained professional can help guide the family through the process of an intervention.
Our caring interventionists utilize several scientific models to help leverage the individual into treatment and address the specific issues that person is facing. Our goal at NRWC is to help with every step of the process to assist you and your loved on to the road of healing and recovery. Call us today to see if one our professional interventionist can be of assistance for you.
