What Does A Substance Abuse Intervention Involve?

An intervention can help an addicted person realize that their substance abuse is out of control and that it’s time to seek substance abuse rehab. In many cases, family and friends describe in detail the negative effects of their loved one’s behavior. 

Every intervention is different. Some people are combative and aren’t yet ready to acknowledge they have a problem. Others are relieved and ready to enroll in treatment immediately. In our experience, most people in active addiction fall somewhere in between. 

It’s also not unusual for people to resist the idea of drug and alcohol rehab because of preconceived notions about what it entails — especially detox. Right Path Rehab offers a medically supervised detox that safely eliminates the symptoms of withdrawal. Meanwhile, both residential inpatient treatment and our partial hospitalization program are engaging, dynamic, and fun. 

We’ve Helped Thousands of Individuals Overcome Drug and Alcohol Addiction

If you or a loved one are ready to overcome drug or alcohol abuse, our addiction specialists are here to guide you through every step. Many of our dedicated staff members are in long-term recovery themselves and understand firsthand the challenges of the recovery journey. This personal experience, combined with our professional expertise, allows us to offer compassionate, effective support tailored to your unique needs.

Preparing For Intervention

  • Don’t pull together an intervention at the last second. It takes planning and preparation. 
  • Consider approaching your loved one in private, rather than as a large group. Often, people are taken by surprise and feel defensive when confronted by an entire group at once.
  • Be direct in vocalizing your concern — but also be loving. Avoid accusations and frame your comments from a personal perspective, i.e., “I feel disappointed,” versus, “You disappoint me.”
  • Remember that, as hurt, angry, or frightened as you may feel, you and your loved one are in this together. Do all you can to get them to agree to treatment, as that’s their best hope for recovery.
