If you have a friend or family member who is suffering from addiction, chances are you have considered staging an intervention. It is incredibly devastating to watch a loved one struggle with addiction. They may often claim to quit, only to use again. Their moods may shift dramatically, and they may lash out and become unstable at even the mention of the thought of help. If an addict has reached this serious and severe stage of addiction, the important people in his or her life may have no choice but to stage an intervention.

Staging an intervention is a last ditch effort to appeal to an addict’s desire to get clean. No one but an addict can decide to get healthy, but communicating with the addict in as clear and serious of a fashion possible may be the impetus for the addict to finally come to terms with the severity of their addiction. While an intervention can be a very useful tool in convincing an addict to get help, staging the intervention is an extremely challenging process. Confronting an addict may very well cause them to go on the defensive, and end in a fight that sends the addict further away from their loved ones. So, how does one stage an intervention? How can you get through to your loved one and have the highest probability of a success rate?

Alcohol Intervention Alcohol addiction is a serious and severe condition. No one knows more than the family and friends of an alcoholic what a devastating and destructive force alcohol can be on an addict’s life. If an alcoholic is drinking so much that alcohol is consuming their entire existence: their emotional well being, their financial stability, their ability to lead a normal life, they may also become distant and defensive toward those who love them. It can be extremely difficult to convince a person that they have a problem. An addict’s entire mindset is built around procuring more of the substance they’re addicted to, so anyone or anything that comes in their way is viewed as a threat. Often, the only way to get through to an alcoholic is to stage an intervention for them. Staging an intervention should by no means be taken lightly. When friends and family are ready to intervene with an alcoholic, they should enlist the help of a professional interventionist. An interventionist has a background in substance abuse and plenty of experience dealing with addicts. They will help devise a plan that is specific to the alcoholic, their family, and their lifestyle. Because many alcoholics may react with feelings of anger or rage when confronted about their problem, it is crucial that an interventionist is involved in the process, in order to help deal with the alcoholic’s unpredictable behavior.

Many people associate interventions with chemical addictions like drugs or alcohol. The reality is, however, that people can become addicted to a wide variety of compulsive behaviors. The definition of addiction is: the state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is physically habit-forming to the extent that it causes severe trauma. This means that anyone who is exhibiting destructive behaviors that have rendered them powerless over their own lives is an addict, and may be in need of help from a professional interventionist. One addictive behavior that may require the help of an interventionist to stop is gambling. It can be difficult to spot a gambling problem, because one of the symptoms of a gambling addiction is concealing the amount of gambling that an addict is engaging in, or lying about how much money they have lost. It is likely that a severe addict will begin to openly exhibit symptoms once the problem has become too big for them to conceal. It may become apparent that a loved one is facing a gambling addiction when they ask to borrow large amounts of money, or fall so behind on rent or bills that they face eviction or have their utilities shut off. A gambler may also have stretches of time that they are not able to account for, or exhibit delusions that they will be able to recoup their losses if they continue to gamble.

Ken Seeley of Intervention 911 stresses the importance of a sober companion for an addict or alcoholic trying to stay clean and sober in the early stages of recovery from drugs and alcohol. Ken Seeley introduces the importance of arranged physical transportation to and from treatment, court appearances, family functions, and any other place outside of the home the individual needs to go, because the addict or alcoholic is most likely to relapse when consistency and accountability are not in place. The initial trip from the rehab treatment center where the addict or alcoholic has lived for an extended period of time to the next place the addict will live is long and difficult. Fear, anticipation, and even anxiety can be triggering the person to throw away the stint of sobriety her or she has at that point in exchange for the perceived pleasure that drugs and alcohol would provide them in that uncomfortable moment.
