Watching a loved one battle an active addiction is likely one of the most emotionally devastating things you will ever do. Addiction is a cunning, baffling, and powerful disease – one that dramatically affects everyone involved. Addiction is also a disease of denial. This means that even when the issues associated with the addictive disorder are glaringly obvious to everyone else, the individual who is affected believes that he or she does not have a problem that is worth treating… or even a problem at all. This is often extremely frustrating to the family members of the addicted individual.
Is an Intervention Helpful for Going to Rehab?
If you have an addicted loved one, you might be wondering what you can do to encourage your loved one to seek the professional treatment he or she so desperately needs. You may feel like you have tried everything – calm conversations, ultimatums, bribes… nothing has worked so far, and you are reaching the end of your rope. Fortunately, there are options. At Agape Treatment Center, we have licensed, experienced, and highly compassionate interventionists on staff. When nothing else seems to be doing the trick and treatment is necessary, staging a professional intervention is the best next step. There are numerous ways to find a reputable interventionist – however, if you are in a bind and you do not have the time or emotional energy to do the research yourself, we are always available to help.
Finding a Reputable Interventionist
How does one go about finding a professional and reputable interventionist? There are several different options, including:
- Call a reputable treatment facility in your immediate area and ask them if they have any licensed interventionists on staff.
- Call up a licensed addiction therapist – he or she will likely have a professional relationship with several reputable interventionists and will be able to point you in the right direction.
- Simply look up interventionists in your area online. It is important to note that there are many people out there who claim to be professional interventionists – however, many of them are not extensively trained in staged interventions. You must find someone who has the experience, credentials, and an extensive list of references.
If you want to skip the extensive research, Agape Treatment Center is available to help. All of our on-staff interventionists have extensive experience and have a long list of professional references.
Once you reach out to us, we will transfer you to one of our reputable interventionists, who will set to work planning out the actual event. We understand that when it comes to seeking professional addiction treatment, there is typically a small window of opportunity. It is important to act quickly and begin developing a plan of action as soon as possible. Once you reach out for help, we will set to work establishing who is going to participate in the intervention, what they are going to say, what treatment options will be available to the person who is being intervened upon, and what boundaries will be discussed. Interventions are often effective, but they must be professionally staged.
