We Help You Stop Enabling
Our professional interventionists work with your entire family to help stop enabling your loved one. Denial and enabling go hand-in-hand with addiction. Denial claims there is no disease. Enabling helps the addicted person maintains his/her behaviors.
Often, family members think they are helping their addicted loved one by not allowing them to experience the consequences of their addiction. This is called enabling. Many families and/or friends believe, that somehow if they protect their loved one from failing, their love and protection will be enough to save him/her.
From our experience, just the opposite happens. As long as a family and/or friends enable their addicted loved one, he or she will never recover.
Some of these enabling behaviors are:
→Giving an addicted loved one a place to stay
→Funding rent and/or bills
→Stocking the pantry and refrigerator
→Calling in sick for their addicted loved one when he/she is too sick to go to work
→Driving the addicted person to buy drugs or alcohol or providing access to a vehicle for this purpose
We Help You Love Differently
By the time families reach out to us as professional interventionists, they are often emotionally spent. They have experienced one too many broken promises, broken relationships, broken attempts to save their loved- one.
Our intervention services provide an opportunity for your whole family to come together and rally around each other. It provides a safe space to tell your addicted loved one that you want him or her to be able to live a happy, sober life. And it provides an opportunity for members to encourage each other on your personal journeys toward health and healing.
