It is challenging to help a loved one struggling with any type of addiction. Sometimes a direct, heart-to-heart conversation can start the road to recovery. But when it comes to addiction, the person with the problem often struggles to see it and acknowledge it. A more focused approach is often needed. You may need to join forces with your family and others through a formal loving intervention to bring a change in your life. That’s where we at Interventions On Demand can help you. We are Certified Intervention Specialists in Canada who provide Canada-wide on-demand interventions to address addiction and help your family adopt a positive and healthy approach towards recovery. Our intervention services help families heal from addiction and alcohol abuse through intervention assessment counselling and family case management. Get in touch with us today to start your journey towards a successful recovery.
An intervention is a carefully planned process that may be done by family and friends, in consultation with a doctor or professional such as a licensed alcohol and drug counsellor or directed by an intervention professional (interventionist). It sometimes involves a member of your loved one's friends or others who care about the person struggling with addiction. During the intervention, these people gather to approach your loved one about the consequences of addiction and ask him or her to accept help options such as treatment.
Intervention is a professionally directed education process. This technique can be used to monitor as well as help people recover from their drugs and alcohol addiction. People who struggle with addictions are often in denial about their situation and unwilling to seek treatment. They may not recognize the negative effects their behaviour has on themselves and others. Intervention helps the person build a connection between their use of alcohol and drugs and the problems in their life.
The goal of intervention is to present the alcohol or drug user with a structured opportunity to accept help and to make changes before things get even worse. The intervention:
Provides specific examples of destructive behaviours and their impact on the addicted person and their loved ones, family and friends.
Offers a prearranged treatment plan with clear steps, goals and guidelines.
Develops a comprehensive care plan, possibly to include family case management.
Spells out what each person will do if their loved one refuses to accept treatment.
Family Case Management
We work in collaboration with the addict, their family and the service providers to ensure effective results.
