Intervention in Stockton, CA
Holding an intervention is the most effective way to point out to a love one the negative implications their addiction is having on their life. Addiction is horrifying for both the addict and the addict’s friends and family. Although you deeply love your family member or friend, you are tired of saying no, tired of being used, fed up with the individuals who feed off of the addict with codependent behavior. You can’t be afraid of confrontation. Stepping in with an intervention might be the only way to prove to the addict that their substance abuse problem is hurting their body physically and mentally while also destroying their relationships with those close to them. During an intervention it is important to stress the positives of detox and rehab so that the addict knows that a comeback form their sickness is defiantly possible.
Who Is an Interventionist?
The person who directs the intervention is known as the interventionist. A Better Today (ABT) strongly suggests family members and friends get in touch with a certified, skilled interventionist if they plan on hosting an intervention for their loved one. Attempting an intervention without a professional is unwise, because family and friends are usually too close to the situation to be open-minded. They will have problems discussing their emotions without being judgmental, and the intervention runs the chance of backfiring. To avoid miscommunication, the interventionist asks participants to write a letter to, or make notes, to be read to the addict. These letters include anything from constructive encouragement, to valuable shared memories, to ultimatums about the addiction and attendance in a rehabilitation program.
Interventionists are an unprejudiced third party, but they need to have excellent communication skills and an expert outlook concerning the disease of addiction. Interventionists are there to look out for the best interest of the addict, which allows them to bring an outside point of view to the conversation. An interventionist uses the right language for both the addict and the addict’s friends and family, and can communicate effectively with both parties. If you are ready to get in touch with an interventionist please call (209) 208-5777 right now. There are trained counselors and consultants available 24 hours a day.
