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 is addicted to drugs or alcohol, somebody who isn’t how you remember as a result of their habit, 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 of an addict care a lot about the addict, but they are fed up with being used, 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 people that are concerned about the addict combine forces to 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 is used to provide 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’ve got a problem or is simply unwilling to seek treatment. There are several topics that need to be addressed during an intervention:

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; this approach must be done before another more difficult intervention is tried.

  • In dangerous, precarious situations, such as reckless driving, violence, or intense drug addiction, it’s best to make use of 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. Our program teaches 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.
