Do interventions work?
Bringing in a drug and alcohol interventionist to help families with their loved ones suffering from addiction has become more popular in recent years. Drug and alcohol interventionists are trained professionals in the field of addiction and family systems. It is best to think of an interventionist as a mediator to a family needing answers with a loved one addicted to drugs, alcohol, or something else.
We deal primarily with alcohol and drug abuse. Addiction is complicated and requires a professional with experience to explain the process and guide you. Common misunderstandings include the belief that interventions do not work and that simply talking someone into treatment is enough to make enough substantial change for the family. An alcohol and drug interventionist can show how to get everyone to share in their own responsibilities, which greatly increases the long-term success of anyone who suffers from addiction. Getting addicts or alcoholics to accept treatment is not enough; the family must change also to increase the overall chance for continued sobriety.
When an individual is struggling with addiction, families also bear the consequences of the disease. As a result, families often experience an unsatisfactory quality of life financially, psychologically and spiritually, and take on enabling and/or codependent behavior.
