An intervention is a method that uses love and support to give someone struggling with addiction the best possible opportunity for success. Drug problems affect not only the user but the individual’s entire network of friends and family.
At Beit T’Shuvah, intervention services include a series of assessments and consultations with family and friends to determine the best course of action. Interventions may address specific mental health issues such as addiction, compulsive-behavior, and self-destructive patterns. Intervention services also involve developing a comprehensive family history, establishing a treatment plan, providing psychoeducation on the nature of addiction in the context of family systems, guiding participants in the cultivation of communication skills, and effective strategies for the approach during the intervention.
By using different intervention modalities our intervention professional fosters authentic soul connection, hope and compassion during the intervention process.
Do we need to wait for our loved one to want help or hit rock bottom before seeking professional addiction intervention help?
“Absolutely not. When you become aware of signs that addiction may be present, it’s better to act immediately.”
I’ve been told that I’ve been enabling my loved one, but I don’t know exactly what that means.
“Enabling can take many forms: allowing someone to live in the family home while using drugs or alcohol, ignoring symptoms, aiding them directly through financial means, hiding their behavior, making excuses to family and friends, lacking awareness or knowledge.”
