Our intervention services help an addict’s friends and family present him or her with a clear, unified message and approach to urge the addict to receive treatment. A professional interventionist will help you plan the entire intervention, including selecting an addiction counselor and treatment center that fits your loved one’s specific needs. HelpNest's intervention specialist will counsel with all family members to help them identify and define what needs to change, what enabling behaviors need to stop, and how these ideas will be conveyed to ensure an effective intervention.
Holding an intervention takes coordination, as some family members may not live nearby. A successful intervention may require that key family members travel to support and participate in the intervention. The recovery process is a cooperative effort between the interventionist, the family members, and eventually their loved one suffering from addiction. Even though planning and executing an intervention can be a lot of work, it can pay off in making it easier for someone to get the help they need right away.
An intervention is a simple process in which family members and loved ones of someone with an addiction problem “intervene” in that addict’s life.
They communicate clearly to him or her how his or her addictive behavior has negatively affected their lives. They outline the ways in which they have enabled his or her behavior and they commit to stop those enabling behaviors. In the end, the addict is presented with two options: enter a rehab treatment program right then or continue with his or her addict behaviors without the enablement of those involved in the intervention. If done correctly, an intervention can create an open and loving environment that helps the addict make the right decision.
Though an intervention is one of the most effective techniques when helping a person who is suffering from an addiction problem, the process is not an easy one. When involving a professional interventionist, the likelihood of the individual accepting treatment at the conclusion of the intervention increases greatly. Our professional interventionists will help you plan your intervention and conduct it in a safe, positive manner.
A intervention is necessary when an addict is not willing to admit that he or she has a substance abuse problem.
During this intervention process, a group of people that care about the individual will unite in order to confront the person about his or her drug use. The approach is gentle but direct, aimed at breaking down walls of denial, and motives should be founded on love and honesty. A intervention should be a compassionate process, where both the addict and the family members are treated with respect and understanding. An effective drug intervention does not assign blame or guilt to the addict or family members, but instead promotes healing and recovery.
They also took the time to get to know my son and the situation my family was in. In doing so they were able to find the best treatment facility for my son. They helped us to locate the resources to get my son into treatment. We are so very thankful for all their knowledge and compassion in this complicated situationHolly, Concerned Mother
My family had pretty much given up on me because I had tried to quit 4-5 times over the past few years and had always started drinking within days. Well, soon it will be my 3rd year sober for me and it truly is a miracle. I am so grateful for my life today, and I will always be so thankful to HelpNest and everyone who played a part in my recovery!Jody, Alcoholic, Addict
I have recently returned to the treatment facility where I got sober. Only this time as an employee. I am now helping others who suffer from this terrible disease. Who would have thought it possible? There is hope. There is a solution. HelpNest will help, if you are willing.Shauna B. , Alcoholic
HelpNest gave me the hope, guidance and support I so desperately needed to face reality. Because of them, I can be clean and sober and live a happy carefree life today. I have my family back, but most of all, I’m back. It all starts with honesty and the willingness to make a change.Shauna B., Alcoholic
Helpnest didn’t just walk away, they continue to check on him and monitor his progress. We feel that our family has been saved due to the amazing efforts of this organization.Holly, Concerned Mother
[John from HelpNest] helped me decide what my plans were for after detox. John did all the calling, trying to setup my financing, setting everything up with the treatment center. John helped me get into a facility and also called and spoke to my family. It just amazed me that someone who didn’t even know me would go out of their way to help me like that.Jody, Alcoholic, Addict
