Addiction Recovery in the New York, NY Area – Call 646-930-7325  Now!

Interventions are one of the best approaches for getting addicts into a rehabilitation (rehab) treatment program. If there’s someone in your life who you think has an addiction to drugs or alcohol, our treatment center can provide a way to start helping them into recovery. Watching an addict suffer and fight can be a miserable process, particularly if you’re a family member or loved one. You may be asking yourself, “How can I help my loved one get healthy again,” and “What’s my role in the recovery process?” Typically, family members and loved ones care a lot about the addict, but they are tired of being misled, exhausted with saying “no” to the addict, and others who may be codependent on the addict’s behavior. You can’t be afraid of confrontation: fear must not stop you from taking action. Call our addiction recovery experts at 646-930-7325  for information about interventions and how to set one up.

What’s an Intervention?

An intervention is a counseling meeting that’s well-organized, and seeks to convince an addict to go into a rehab facility to address their addiction problems. Family members, friends, clergy members, coaches, or other concerned individuals confront the addict regarding the effects of their substance addiction, and urge them to obtain therapy for their drug and/or alcohol addiction. Program intervention provides the addict with an opportunity to get assistance and save their own life. This is especially effective when the addict doesn’t recognize that they have a problem or is simply unwilling to seek treatment. There are several topics that an intervention should address:

The four different kinds of interventions are simple, crisis, classical, and family system:

  • A simple intervention is ‘simply’ asking someone to quit their life-threatening behavior. Use this approach before using another more difficult intervention.

  • In dangerous, precarious situations, such as reckless driving, violence, or intense drug addiction, you should use crisis intervention.

  • Classical interventions focus on a single person, the goal being that they immediately agree to enter rehab due to the intervention.

  • Family system interventions direct the focus on the entire family, and getting them to adjust their behaviors. Since substance abuse and domestic violence frequently combine to create socially dysfunctional living environments, everyone involved will need help changing their behaviors.

What Is the Difference Between an Intervention and Therapy?

Though both are very important for the recovery process, it’s crucial to remember that there’s a major difference between an intervention and therapy. Our treatment center considers intervention a process whereby family and friends persuade a family member, friend, or loved one to enter a rehab treatment facility so that they can overcome their drug and/or alcohol addiction. An intervention is not the same as treatment, and will not be enough to make an addict quit abusing drugs or alcohol without additional rehabilitation. Programs teach the addict about the illness of drug and alcohol addiction and provide them with the skills and methods they’ll need to manage long term recovery. Our staff recommends that an addict agree to enter a treatment program on the very same day as their intervention.
