Staging And Interventions

Arranging an intervention can be an excellent manner to get a friend/family member into rehabilitation. The addict's life could be saved through this:

An Intervention - What Is It?

An intervention is a highly structured meeting between an addict and their loved ones that is usually supervised by an interventionist.


When an intervention is successful, the addict's loved ones have expressed their feelings in a constructive manner.


The next workable action to take when individual interaction with the addict is not effective is to involve a group. An intervention also shows an addict how his/her behaviour influences the people who he/she cares about. Interventions are organised to help get the addict into rehab for treatment.

When To Intervene For A Loved One

Approaching an alcohol or drug addict could be very difficult. Family members and friends may become short of words and expressions, even though they come with no bad intentions. The conversation can be made even more difficult because the addict might refuse to admit that they have a drug or alcohol problem. Physical clues that show a loved one is addicted are:

  • Secretive behaviour
  • Borrowing cash
  • Aggressive behaviour
  • Disintegrating of physical appearance
  • Not having motivation/energy
  • Trouble at work or school
  • Health problems

Some other issues like eating disorders and depression are normally suffered by most of the addicted people. Intercession pros can help guide discussion to address these co-happening issues.

It may not be possible for drug and alcohol addicts to understand the negative effects of their actions on the people around them. The addicts are pushed into making the intake of drugs their foremost priority because it alters the workings of their brain. The ways in which they have been affected negatively by the actions of drug and alcohol addicts could be explained by friends and relatives of the addict to make them understand the situation. These stories ought to be pre-composed and checked on by interceding individuals before the mediation.


Pick A Venue And Time For The Intervention
