Q. Do alcohol intervention and professional drug interventions work?
A. The intervention process is extremely effective in getting an addicted person into an appropriate drug intervention program where they will get the help they need.
Q. How do alcohol interventions and drug interventions work?
A. The intervention process begins when friends, family and/or coworkers, with the help of an experienced interventionist, coordinate efforts in attempt to persuade an addict to accept professional help. Letters are written, boundaries are established, consequences are set, and the intervention is rehearsed. All possible responses and scenarios are discussed and rehearsed.
The next step of the intervention process is the actual intervention, which is most effectively orchestrated by a professional. The loved one is confronted with the letters and overwhelming love of their friends and family. They are told about his or her chemical dependence and how it is affecting everyone’s lives. They are given the choice to accept the love and help being provided or take the consequences. An executive intervention or other family intervention addressing other addictions will be customized by the crisis interventionist.
