At Faith in Recovery, we understand how difficult it can be to watch a loved one struggle with drug or alcohol abuse. We’re familiar with the stress and constant worrying that comes with this lifestyle, and without drug or alcohol intervention, this challenge may only be prolonged. Fortunately, our facility offers faith-based interventions for addiction that can help the individual recover while promoting healing within the family. It’s important for our clients to be set up for success and have a strong support system outside of rehab, which is why our services incorporate spouses and family to ensure amends are made, and healing happens.
What Is an Intervention for Addiction?
It’s challenging to help a loved one overcome a struggle as serious as drug addiction. Alcohol and drugs like opioids and stimulants have a high potential for abuse. Not only do they serve as a form of emotional support for many addicts, but they’re also physically entrapping.
When it comes to identifying this problem, the addict is either in denial and refuses to talk about it, or they fully understand their issue but don’t have the strength to quit on their own. Regardless of the situation, a more focused approach is often required to help the person see their need for help. If you have a loved one in this position, you may need to join forces with others and take action through a formal drug or alcohol intervention program.
An intervention for addiction is a carefully planned process usually conducted by the addict's close friends and family. Best done in consultation with a doctor or certified intervention specialist, it may sometimes also involve a member of your loved one’s faith or others who care about them.
During the intervention, these individuals gather together to confront the individual. They might write personal letters to the person and read them aloud during the intervention. The group might also confront the individual about the consequences of denying substance abuse treatment.
The purpose of addiction care interventions is to help the addict realize the severity of their substance abuse, how it’s affecting the people they’re closest to, and the best avenue of treatment for them. As difficult and uncomfortable as it may be for them, many addicts don’t understand the severity of their drug or alcohol abuse until they come face to face with everyone in their life. If you’re struggling to get your loved one drug or alcohol addiction treatment, our faith-based interventions can help.
Our Faith-Based Drug Intervention Programs
Usually, the spouse, parents, or siblings of the individual will work with our interventionists to plan an intervention. Together, our specialists and the person’s loved ones will:
- Conduct a plan for the intervention
- Gather information about the extent of their loved one’s problem
- Invite those who will be a part of the intervention
- Decide on specific consequences
- Make notes or a guideline on what to say
- Hold the actual meeting
It’s beneficial to receive the help of our Christian drug rehabilitation center for conducting an intervention because we have certified specialists on our team. These are individuals who are trained on how to stage an intervention. Having a professional who leads the meeting not only ensures that it goes as planned but also minimizes the risk of emotional outbursts and family drama getting in the way.
Interventions are by no means easy, but they can go a lot smoother with the help of a professional. Not only can our team help you in conducting an organized and effective intervention, but they also educate the addict and the rest of the group about addiction and why treatment is so important. In doing so, our team encourages both action and patience from all parties.
If you have a loved one who’s struggling with drug or alcohol abuse, don’t wait any longer to get help. Contact Faith in Recovery, our faith-based recovery center, today for more information about our intervention services and our levels of addiction care.
