Drug and alcohol abuse are accompanied by many dangerous symptoms. One of the most harmful of these symptoms is denial. Simply put, drug and alcohol addiction destroys lives. Many of those who struggle with addiction and substance abuse have a hard time admitting the extent of the problem or even acknowledging that they have a problem at all. This is not their own personal shortcoming; it is a symptom of the disease itself.
Still, it makes it difficult for family members and loved ones, who desperately want to see the individual get help but do not know how to approach the subject. After all, when an individual does not take responsibility for his or her actions, and does not even acknowledge a problem with addiction, how can addiction recovery even be a topic of conversation?
What is a Professional Interventionist and How Do They Assist?
That is why Above It All is proud to offer our interventionist program. A professional interventionist is someone who can help families develop a strategy for talking to their loved one struggling with addiction and helping him or her realize the full extent of the problem. Ultimately, the interventionist’s role is to help get the substance abuser into a treatment program, and to provide resources for ongoing recovery.
At Above It All Treatment Center, we believe in the power of open communication, but we also understand how difficult it is to approach the subject of substance addiction with a friend or loved one. As such, we believe intervention services can make a huge impact. Since no two individuals or families are ever exactly alike, we offer a variety of intervention services; we would love to speak with you further about these services, and to offer guidance as you select the service that is best for your family’s situation.
To learn more, or to begin the intervention process today, we invite you to contact us at Above It All Treatment Center.
If your family is located in the State of California, Above It All can help arrange a face-to-face intervention, where the individual struggling with substance abuse is present alongside family members and close friends. An intervention counselor is present to moderate the conversation. For families outside California, we can either arrange for a remote intervention or even fly an intervention counselor out for a face-to-face dialogue.
The interventionist will work not just with the person struggling with addiction, but also with family members, providing the skills necessary to offer firm yet compassionate support, and ultimately to urge the individual into seeking treatment. The interventionist will also provide an outline of the full intervention process, ensuring families know what to expect.
Some of the specific drug and alcohol intervention programs we offer include:
- Family interventions
- One-on-one interventions
- Guided interventions
- Group interventions
Beyond the Intervention
The goal of the intervention is for the individual to admit to his or her problem, and to ask for help in addiction recovery. From there, Above It All can offer a range of resources—we highly recommend admission into an inpatient recovery program with one of our facility partners.
At Above It All, the individual receives an evaluation and a treatment plan is tailored to meet their specific needs. From there, the process includes detox, holistic recovery, relapse prevention planning and lifelong sobriety programs, which we facilitate internally and through our network of partners.
We want to help those struggling with addiction to develop the tools they need for truly lifelong recovery. That process begins with the acknowledgement of a problem. That may seem impossible right now, but with the help of an intervention specialist, hope is imminently achievable. Begin the addiction intervention process—and the road to recovery—today.
