Is your child or spouse struggling with addiction? Do you know he or she needs help, but don’t know how to best provide support? In a successful intervention, you can provide your child or spouse with the framework needed to get clean and stay sober.
What is an intervention?
People struggling with substance abuse are often in denial and unwilling to seek treatment. In an intervention, you will present the addict with a structured opportunity to accept help and to make changes. The expert counselors at Retorno can coach you to prepare for a successful intervention.
Your child or loved one may not believe he needs treatment or may not be ready to stop using. As a parent or as a spouse, this resistance can be devastating. A successful intervention breaks down resistance and creates an opening for lasting change.
Discover how to make a successful intervention
Retorno can help you make a successful intervention. Whether you are seeking to help a teenager, young adult, or middle-aged person, our experts can help you gain tools for a successful intervention. You can help the person you love to realize the time has come to begin rehab.
Succesful interventions require preparation. Family members need to prepare a plan—and stick to the plan. The interventions should steer clear of belittling or guilt-tripping, as in “this will kill your Dad“. The addiction specialists at Retorno will help you prepare a plan, rehearse the plan, and prepare for when the intervention starts to veer off-script.
In some cases, you should call in professional help for the intervention. This is the case when your loved one:
- Has a history of serious mental illness or violence, or if you suspect a violent or self-destructive reaction.
- Has shown suicidal behavior or recently talked about suicide.
- Maybe taking several mood-altering substances.
