What Is an Intervention?
An intervention is a counseling method used to inspire a drug or alcohol addict to consider getting rehab and treatment for their addiction. Interventions include the addict, together with any members of the family, friends, and loved ones of the addict, and are guided by means of an interventionist. Typically, addicts are unresponsive to appeals, unwilling to participate in rehab, or are in denial regarding their addiction. An addict may or may not know about the intervention beforehand, a decision left to members of the family, friends, and the interventionist. The objective of an intervention is to make the addict realize how critical the issue is, and then convince them to get treatment at a rehab treatment center. It sounds direct and simple; however, Intervention Services Bakersfield CA knows from experience that intervention is only the first step. The path to recovery is long. There is no simple solution to addiction recovery.
Interventions supply friends and family of an addict the opportunity to convince their family member to enter into a rehabilitation treatment program (rehab). This is the first big step towards recovery. If the person is unwilling to go to treatment then the hope of getting better is small. Rehab is needed as a way to obtain treatment and conquer addiction once and for all. The recovery process begins in rehab. An intervention isn't treatment, but it is the perfect place to start a journey towards recovery. During treatment, the addict comes to understand the facts of their addiction, and learns about the disease. This empowers them to gain control over their addiction and life. Additionally, they are taught the tools and techniques to control their addiction and behavior. They also learn the way to maintain sustained sobriety. That way when treatment is over, they don't go back to their old ways once they return to their day to day lives. Without this transition period and new tools, it can be hard to maintain long-term recovery. If a loved one of yours is struggle and not able to get themselves the help they need consider intervention. Nobody ever regrets being there for the ones they love.
