The purpose of an intervention is to help a person with a substance abuse issue become aware of their self-destructive behaviors. The ultimate goal of an intervention is to encourage someone to admit into formal drug and/or alcohol treatment. Interventions are never about shaming, blaming, attacking or expressing anger. During an intervention, participants help in “holding up a mirror” for the individual to see the severity and consequences of their actions. This can be difficult because of the delusions caused by the addicted person’s denial.
Most people suffering from the disease of addiction have an unrealistic self-assessment. They have lost the ability to ask for help. They operate under the belief that they can stop on their own or that their behaviors do not have a significant effect on their own life or anybody else’s. The truth is the alcoholic, drug addict, compulsive gambler, spender, sex addict, workaholic and codependent are trapped in a powerful, chronic, progressive and often fatal illness that must be treated.
A properly assessed and well-orchestrated drug, alcohol, or behavioral intervention has been a proven and effective way to begin the healing process. StR Intervention services immediately help struggling individuals access the gift of recovery.
