Successful intervention & recovery is dependent on the addict or alcoholic being held accountable for their addiction so that accepting treatment can become possible instead of waiting for the problem to correct itself.
At Family First Intervention we work with the family to help identify what needs to change to help your loved one become accountable and willing to accept help. Addicts and alcoholics teach families how to enable them so that they stay comfortable enough so wanting help is not an option and hitting bottom never occurs.
Many families struggle with how to “fix”, “talk to” or “change” the addict or alcoholic’s thinking and behaviors so they can stop on their own. Families think that if their loved one just gets that perfect job or meets that special someone things will get better. Addicts and alcoholics manipulate their family’s emotions to make their addiction possible – even at the expense of others they love.
Our Intervention Counselors will help you understand your loved ones behaviors and how they are holding you emotionally hostage while they become professional victims to help carry on with their addiction while avoiding hitting bottom or wanting help.
How Our Alcohol and Drug Interventions Work:
We start with an initial phone consultation to help identify what is keeping your loved one comforable in their addiction. In order for an Intervention Program to have a succesful outcome we need to bring the family on the same page instead of them operating with different opinions, most of which have either directly or indirectly manipulated or taught to the family by the addict or alcoholic.
Our intervention process goes way beyond just convincing your loved one to agree to an addiction treatment program – we actually help repair the situation, by educating the family system ensuring long term success for both the addict, alcohol and family.
Every family we have worked with has something that can be changed drastically within the family system to give the addiction back to their loved one. Many other interventionists, treatment centers and therapists tell families they must wait for their loved one to hit rock bottom before anything can be done, not only is this extremely dangerous to tell someone……..
This is absolutely NOT TRUE.
Waiting for your loved one to want help or hit rock bottom is never going to happen if the family is enabling in a way that prevents those things from happening.
The longer a family waits the more comfortable their loved one becomes as an addict or alcoholic while slowly stripping away at the families sanity. Why wait when you can help them now?

Why Use Family First Intervention?
Addicts and alcoholics have taught their families everything they know about their addiction and how to handle it. We understand that a one person addicted to drugs or alcohol is easier to help than 5 or more family members who are addicted to their loved one through codependency. We understand the dynamics of a complex family system that has been hijacked by their loved one through emotional manipulation.
The point, is families spend all of their focus on talking them into treatment or waiting for them to go on their own. We help educate you on how the addiction been made more comfortable so that the addicted person does not get well. We can only change what we have control over and that is our own behaviors.
Our drug and alcohol intervention programs provide families the professional assistance needed to make the best decisions about your loved one. Our counselors ensure your loved one and family system has the best possible chance of long term success.
