Intervention

Lisa Taylor
Lisa TaylorAddiction Counsellor

Here at Alcohol Rescue, we know how frustrating it can be to watch a loved one struggling with addiction, and how this is even more frustrating when that person refuses to accept that he or she has a problem. Denial is a common issue among those with addictions, and what may be glaringly obvious to you, might be something that your addicted loved one simply cannot see as true.

The reality is that you cannot force a person to get help for addiction unless this individual wants it, and unless you can get that person to admit that alcohol has become a serious problem, he or she is never going to accept help.

What is an Intervention

While you cannot force your loved one to get help, you can encourage him or her to see that a problem exists, and one of the most effective ways of doing this is through an intervention. An intervention is a process in which a group of people close to the addicted individual will come together to try to persuade him or her to get help. The aim of the intervention is to get the addicted person to see how his or her behaviour is affecting other members of the family and close friends.

Professional Help

When it comes to staging an intervention, many family members are worried about how to carry it out effectively. At Alcohol Rescue, we can provide you with information regarding effective intervention techniques. Alternatively, we can put you in touch with a professional facilitator who can take charge of the process and make sure it runs smoothly. Many family members prefer to do this as they feel it offers the best chance of success.

If you would like help staging an intervention, call Alcohol Rescue today.
