Intervention is a proven and successful process that has enabled thousands of people with problems of addiction to alcohol or drugs to obtain treatment for that addiction despite being in denial or previously refusing help. The view that a person has to hit “rock-bottom” before they can be helped has proved to be mistaken in case after case. Intervention is a process where that “rock-bottom” can be lifted so that help can be obtained before it is too late.
A skilled interventionist will enlist the aid of the family, friends or colleagues of the addicted person to confront him or her with the consequences of their addiction. There are different models of intervention, but in every case they should be facilitated by a trained interventionist who is able to guide and advise the family in the all-important preliminary stages before the actual intervention can take place. The planning will consist of a number of steps to be taken including, deciding who will be involved and the role they will play. It is often useful to prepare written material before the intervention and to carefully consider all possible objections that the addicted person may raise and be ready to deal with those objections.
