At Anaheim Lighthouse, we give our family intervention services the specialized insight and awareness needed for the best possible outcome. Drug or alcohol intervention is a delicate process. It is an opportunity for family members and loved ones to compassionately confront the addict with objective observations in order to focus on the reality of the situation.
We work closely with family members to prepare in advance by thinking about and expressing how the addict’s behavior has affected them adversely.
It’s common for family members to ask the question,”What’s an intervention?” The goal of intervention is to encourage a commitment from the substance abuser to enter drug addiction treatment. Our experienced interventionists also help the family to determine specific consequences if the addict is not willing to cooperate by taking advantage of help at a residential treatment center. Interventions are conducted without finger-pointing and accusations. The approach of alcohol and drug intervention is gentle but assertive. When a family contacts us seeking information about intervention, the heartbreak and exhaustion caused by addiction have reached a peak. Our interventionists approach the situation with understanding hearts. They have the first-hand experience with addiction and recovery.
Addiction Intervention Specialized For Family Needs
Because addiction is a family illness, it affects everyone in the family. Our addiction intervention team understands the family dynamics. We pay special attention to the needs of each family. We make the best match possible in terms between the addict and the interventionist we provide for each situation. Some factors that enter into our decision include the age, sexual preference and drug of choice. Even cultural influences make a difference in the drug intervention we provide. Whether the preferred substance is alcohol, barbiturate, opioid or prescription drug, we can provide a qualified interventionist with experience in a particular issue. We have the means to address many circumstances, and our services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. When you contact us for family intervention services, we are prepared to provide the help you are seeking. If you are experiencing a crisis at 2 in the morning on a weekend, for instance, you will not have to wait until 8 a.m. Monday morning for someone at our drug treatment center to work with you.
Family Intervention Services Get the Ball Rolling
When the family intervention services attain the goal of inspiring the addict’s willingness to accept help, treatment begins at our drug detox center, where we can make medical and psychological assessments while providing 24-hour care. If our professionals determine an underlying mental illness, our dual diagnosis treatment center is equipped to provide the necessary support. Anaheim Lighthouse involves the family every step of the way. Medical professionals, therapists and counselors help clients and their families determine the best course of action in an individual treatment plan. Throughout the process, we encourage participation in our support groups for families of addicts. We believe that helping the family to understand the nature of addiction, to see their role in the dynamics and to learn new communication skills provides the greatest opportunity for successful treatment. What begins as the discouragement that prompts drug intervention can end up as a beacon of hope for everyone involved.Get in touch with our Southern California drug and alcohol rehab directly.
