Treatment for Addiction

If someone you love is struggling or living with an addiction, but doesn't seem to know or is failing to recognize just how badly alcoholism, drug use, or eating disorder is damaging their health, career, future, and relationships, then an intervention might be the best way to help them realize what they are missing. Interventions offer a less intimidating way of confronting the issue rather than negative reinforcement, which is often the impulse of many people when dealing with addicted loved ones. Because the first step of treatment for addiction is recognizing the problem, interventions can help push your loved one into the path to recovery. While you can run an intervention on your own, with the help and support of a few friends and family, you may also work with a professional or trained interventionist to increase your chances of getting through to your friend or loved one. 

When considering an intervention, the first thing you need to do is consider whether or not your loved one indeed needs an intervention. A few nights of continued drinking or some occasional rounds of binge drinking across say, a year don't necessarily indicate an immediate need for an intervention or an actual rehab treatment. However, if the problem is more severe and he or she cannot stop abusing alcohol despite promising to do so, multiple times, or if the abuse is already interfering with his or her life, then an intervention might be needed to help him or her seek treatment for addiction.

A good rule of thumb would be to follow your instinct and go for an intervention if you see that alcohol or drugs is starting to destroy your loved one. In these situations, intervention is more than an appropriate step; it is a necessary process to help push them into recovery. When planning an intervention, you need to know who to invite (people who are very close to your loved one or are directly affected by his or her addictive actions), where to hold it (a private place where he or she can feel secure), when to hold it (a convenient time, possibly when he or she is sober), and who will run it (you, a spouse, or a trained specialist).

Successful interventions don't necessarily mean successful rehab results, as recovery is totally up to the person and his or her willingness to go through every step of the process. What you can do is give him or her support that they need without judgment. One40 is a good place to seek rehab treatment for your loved one's alcohol, drug, or eating problem, providing you with a wide range of treatment options for these kinds of disorders.
