When it’s time to act, an intervention may be necessary. Usually an intervention is simply giving an opportunity for the addict to decide that they need help, and providing them the exact answer to how.
Webster defines intervention as the act of coming between. Addiction intervention is a process by which the harmful, progressive, once-destructive effects of chemical dependency are interrupted, and the chemically dependent person can get the help to stop using mood-altering substances and be taught to develop new, healthier ways to cope with his or her problems. A person need not hit “rock bottom” or be an emotional or physical wreck before such help can be given. Intervention is presenting reality to a person out of touch with it in a caring and non-judgmental way.
Extreme Drug Intervention
An Extreme intervention is a deliberate but caring, and well-conceived event following someone expressing their concern for someone they feel they have lost to drug addiction. It is a safe and intentional action removing the individual from the active addiction lifestyle and certain death with immediate detox and place the individual in a rehab facility that will present a plan to change and get help in ways that will address the causes and alleviate the suffering of the individual and all involved. With the swift and skilled action of an Extreme interventionist, the experience creates the opportunity to interrupt destructive patterns of living and also deals constructively with a crisis situation.
The actual Intervention is when people are forced to confront their darkest demons and seek a route to redemption. It is designed to help people whose dependence on drugs and alcohol or other compulsive behavior has brought them to a point of personal crisis and estranged them from their friends and loved ones. This whole process is designed to return LIFE back to someone seemed headed for certain DEATH.
The Specialized Addiction Canada APPROACH
Our compassionate Intervention professionals guide patients and their families through the sensitive intervention process. The Addiction Canada intervention team evaluates each individual case in order to help the entire support group understand recovery options – inpatient or outpatient. Addiction Canada ‘s drug intervention specialists and addiction counselors provide the information to understand how addiction affects each intervention member. Whether you are the spouse, child, employer, neighbor or friend of the addict, you are vulnerable to the effects of the disease.
The main challenge of intervention is to confront the denial process of the substance abuser. Denial is the number-one symptom that keeps the individual from seeking help. By refusing to believe or accept the problem, the person rationalizes his or her destructive behavior. Most people see losing control of their substance as a weakness and not a disease. Therefore, the person would rather justify his or her use than admit to being weak willed. Chemical dependency is not a will power issue! This must be understood by all parties involved to break the denial barrier and to increase the dependent person’s level of awareness.
