Announcement icon I help families who are suffering from addiction develop effective strategies to get their loved one into treatment. phone, video, in person
My specialty is INTERVENTIONS. A well planned, well rehearsed intervention is an extremely effective strategy for getting a loved one into treatment. Especially when he either doesn't recognize his dependency or is not able to admit it. Sometimes it is not necessary to conduct the full structured intervention. In such cases, we can work with the families by helping them do a "soft" intervention. This is when the family stops getting caught up in the drama of addiction and starts learning a healthier way to respond to the problem. If the family can get well and change behaviors then the addict has a better chance to get help.
Our intervention approach is effective because we come to the addict/alcoholic from a place of love, not anger. We bring a message of support, understanding and compassion and give him no reason to be defensive or argumentative.
The idea that every addict/alcoholic must first "hit bottom" before he is ready to get help is a myth. If we believe that myth then it keeps everyone sitting on the sidelines until a crisis occurs that forces the whole family to "hit bottom."
