An intervention is carried out by a professional interventionist and can convince the individual that they have a dangerous dependency that is damaging not only their health, but their relationships with family, occupation, and friends. At 1Recovery Center we have several licensed interventions that work with our facilities, although independent of our treatment center. These professionals are independent fee based contractors. Their fee is solely dependent on travel costs, time and location. It often takes weeks to organize an intervention. The professional does all the arranging of the participants, the role playing and acts as the mediator. They also often travel to your location, pick up and deliver your loved one to our Treatment facility. This is done to insure safety and security of your loved one into Treatment. Sometimes it is a life savings event.
Interventions are carried out in a relaxed and warm environment often the home of the family. It is always done with assistance from family and friends to persuade the individual to accept treatment and support to regain their former life and move back into society. Licensed interventionists serve as mediators between family, friends and the intended patient during a non-judgmental form of confrontation designed to help the addict realize that they need professional help to cure their dependency. An intervention is the way to help someone realize that they need professional help with addiction, whether it is alcohol or drugs. Many addicts are in denial refusing to accept that they have a problem.
If you wait until the person you love admits that they have a problem and require help, you will be waiting a very long time possibly, maybe until it is too late! If you know that your loved one has a problem and that their health, relationships and life in general are being affected, then it is possible that one of our interventionists at 1Recovery Center can help.
At a pre-intervention meeting, our interventionist will involve the probable attendees in a series of role play scenarios, to prepare them for any likely situations during the intervention. You cannot force anyone into rehab. However, with professional help from one of our interventionists, an addict can be persuaded that they need help immediately.
Intervention should be carried out as early as possible. Once you realize that a loved one has a serious dependency the sooner they are persuaded to get help the less time it takes for them to achieve a successful recovery. If they continuously refuse to seek help then it is time to call in the professional interventionist.
Clients who have entered our facilities following intervention have just as high a success rate of successful recovery as those who come to us voluntarily. Our programs succeed, where others fail.
