Individuals struggling with addiction and self-destructive may be resistant to getting help. Intervention services provide concerned friend and family members the tools they need to make an effort to improve their loved one’s well being.
An intervention takes place at the rehabilitation center and guides individuals who are either refusing help or unable to initiate or accept help themselves. A peaceful, respectful, and structured confrontation is planned and organized by the person’s concerned friends or family members. The individuals must try and get the person’s attention and accept whatever help is being offered, in this case, treatment for addiction and other co-occurring disorders. The idea behind an intervention is that a planned, non-threatening action in a negative situation can have a positive impact on the outcome.
