While effective treatment programs eventually need the willingness of the participants to work, getting a person into treatment in the first place may require outside intervention. Delray Recovery Center’s new intervention services for drug addiction can help people ensure their loved ones get the help they need by guiding them toward the help that can initiate recovery and ultimately save their lives.
“People suffering from addiction may be so blinded by their addiction they may not think they need help or even have a problem,” said Delray Recovery Center Chief Operations Officer Doug Petri. “Sometimes it takes an intervention before the person suffering from the addiction can truly open their eyes.”
To be effective, drug addiction interventions require certain key elements. The first is to ensure that intervention is truly the last option. Individuals should be given a chance to take their own steps to stop drug use and abuse and those planning the intervention should be sure that drug abuse or addiction does exist.
Forming an intervention group, consisting of family members, close personal friends and others who care about the person is a must, as is seeking out an intervention professional, such as Delray Recovery Center, to provide suggestions and advice on the process. Picking an appropriate time and place for the intervention is another key element, as is considering counseling for those who are close to or live with the person suffering from the addiction.
“Our new intervention services can help families and friends guide their loved one into recovery with help at every stage of the intervention process,” Petri said. “Our goal is to ensure not only is the intervention safe and effective, but that the individual will have a safe place to come for recovery. Our doors and arms are open.”
The mental health network Psych Central backs up intervention as a useful and often vital tool for recovery. Addressing a loved one’s addiction is often the most difficult step for family and friends, Psych Central says, and they may end up unknowingly enabling the person instead of helping him or her. The remedy to such a situation can be intervention help from a trusted, outside party such as Delray Recovery Center.
