When your loved one is on the road to self-destruction through alcohol or drugs, sometimes the only way you can help is to stage a family intervention. This is not an easy or simple decision to reach. And the process can be painful. However the results can save your loved one’s life and family relationships.
The Objective of Intervention
The goal is to introduce the idea of change into the person’s life from the point of several family members. It is designed to be respectful and to allow family to share their feelings in a non-confrontational way. The hopeful result is that the person will want to stop the destructive behavior and get help.
We will create an intervention plan based on input from family members. The feelings of the family are discussed either when preparing for the intervention; or during the meeting.
This helps family members deal with the anger and frustration they have been feeling with the situation. As a result, they also experience some positive changes – not just the family member with a substance abuse problem.
Strength in Numbers
A family intervention can strengthen each family member as they deal with their own issues that result from the addiction. Meeting as a group gives family members the support they need and helps them resolve feelings. When you sit down together with your loved one, you will show a cohesiveness that can get their attention better than a one-on-one meeting.
Getting a Professional Involved
While you can stage your own intervention, working with a professional interventionist who specializes in this area can be helpful. A professional can help you resolve your own issues and prepare you for the actual intervention. With their help, you can create an intervention plan for what you will say and how you will say it. It also gives you the confidence that you are doing the right thing.
Everyone Gets Involved – Family Systems Healing
In a family intervention, the focus is not solely on the loved one. In fact, much talk is centered on changing other people’s behaviors that have contributed to the situation. In this case, everyone experiences change after the intervention. In order for the addicted family member to successfully heal from addiction – each family member ideally must participate.
Family members begin to see any areas in which they are responsible for helping the loved one continue destructive behavior. As a result, they begin to understand how they must also change.
This is not an easy situation to deal with! Having a professional can be advantageous in making the intervention successful. An organized approach allows the family to feel confident in their decisions even though it may seem hurtful to the loved one.

They stood by me and helped me guide my son into treatment
I found this company to be very educational about what substance abuse is and how to best approach my son with his addiction. They stood by me and helped me guide my son into treatment. He was so resistant to the idea of going into treatment but after Dave talked with him he went right in. Thanks so much to Dave and Trish for their help.
