ABOUT DRUG INTERVENTION ORANGE COUNTY
Whether a family is conducting an intervention on their own, or has hired an intervention specialist, there is not replacement for careful planning when attempting to intervene on an alcohol or drug abuser. If there are complicating factors, such as a history of violence or mental health problems, loved ones should reach out for the assistance of a professional interventionist.
Identifying the individuals who will take place in the intervention process is the first step; this group should be comprised of people who are close to the addict, and have firsthand knowledge about their substance abuse problem. This intervention team should understand that an intervention is meant to be a loving process, and that anger and judgment are not to be projected onto the addict. If it is not possible for an important member of the family to physically attend the intervention, they can have their letter read by another loved one in attendance, or may participate by phone.
Another vital step in the pre-intervention process will be for the team to determine in advance what objections that the addict may raise, and to come up with a plan that contains conclusive and workable answers. A great example of this is when an addict is a stay at home mom; thus, she will bring up child care concerns. It is at this point that a relative should jump in and say that they would be happy to care for the children, while the person is attending treatment.
Every single person that is involved in the intervention process will have some form of influence, but not everyone will have leverage, which empowers them to precipitate actual consequences in the life of the addict. Obviously, an employer has leverage and so does an addict’s spouse; this leverage should not ever be used as a direct threat, but the related consequences should always be made crystal clear to the addict.All of the people who are involved in the actual intervention process should be sure that they will be able to act with love and concern; thus, a family member or friend that is too angry with the addict to behave appropriately, must not be allowed to participate in the intervention process.
