Alcoholism is a predictable, progressive and chronic disease. Those afflicted with substance abuse struggle with the incessant need to use, even if is negatively affecting their lives.
An Intervention is designed to encourage the addicted person to take steps towards his/her recovery. We at Whole Families Intervention and Services design your intervention so that the addicted person receives compassion, loving-kindness, and dignity.
Throughout the process, the whole family gains a better understanding of the disease of addiction. They begin to perceive the significance of the problem, identify supportive resources and develop a course of treatment appropriate for both themselves and their loved one.
With Whole Families Intervention and Intervention Services, the whole family engages in the process of recovery. They begin to own their own journey toward health and wellness. They begin to embrace the truth that addiction is a family disease, its ramifications have far-reaching effects, and that for the addict to heal and recover, everyone needs to do the same.
We at Whole Families Intervention and Intervention Services believe that blame, shame, threatening and demeaning are ineffective behavior. We are very intentional in your intervention to use a language the addicted person can understand. We use the language of love with compassion, dignity, and accountability.
Professional Interventionists are skillfully trained to work with families and loved ones to intervene in the life of an addicted person.
They coordinate interventions with knowledge of the disease and the experience of working with others who have faced the same battle.
Interventionists provide guidance as neutral, unbiased mediators while empowering the family to intervene on the behalf of their loved one.
If you decide you're ready to reach out for help on the behalf your addicted loved one, you may benefit from the support of an Interventionist.
Without proper assistance, an unmediated intervention can cause more harm than good to both the family and the addict.
The nature of addiction often brings about strong feelings and emotions surrounding both the addicted individual and the family.
The role of a professionally trained Interventionist is extremely important to ensure the meeting conveys compassion, loving-kindness, and dignity.
The Interventionist can monitor the situation, arbitrate when necessary, and advise the whole family while also offering encouragement to everyone.
Anyone who is significant in the life of an addicted person should be present for an intervention. The intervention can include family members, friends, coworkers, clergy, etc.
Professional Interventionist is vital in helping the family determine who should be involved in an intervention. Anyone who is not in full support of a compassionate intervention should NOT be present.
Regardless if the addicted person gets help, the family has come together and witnessed the truth: 1) the family has experienced pain, loss, and despair. 2) in the midst of their challenges, the family has remained resilient, courageous, and strong. 3) The addiction is no longer a secret and the intervention can allow the family to engage in their own journey of recovery.
