Get Help from a Professional Intervention Counselor
It’s time to seek intervention assistance when someone you care about has been struggling with drug or alcohol abuse and shows no signs of getting better, even though you have asked your loved one to stop. You can secure for your loved one the help needed before it is too late; you don’t have to wait for him or her to want help or hit rock bottom. Many families think they can help the addict or alcoholic within the family and do not seek a professional intervention counselor until it’s too late. They have been told by society that their loved one has to want to go to treatment or hit bottom. Waiting for the addict or alcoholic to hit rock bottom or to want help is not the answer. Intervention before it is too late is the answer because the addict is not the only one needing help. The entire family dynamic has been molded by the addict’s or alcoholic’s behaviors, helping to contribute to the addiction getting worse. Until the addict or alcoholic recognizes the true nature of the problem and the family stops enabling, the addict or alcoholic’s irrational behaviors will continue, without accountability and without receiving the help needed.
Once the addict or alcoholic agrees to seek treatment, it is easier to undertake and complete the program and follow through with the discharge plan if the family stays on board and sticks to their boundaries. Many times, you hear that the treatment program has not worked, or that it was not the right place for the loved one’s addiction. This occurs almost exclusively when the family slips back into old behaviors, allowing their loved one to return home or leave treatment early. The help provided by Family First Intervention can assist in both situations. Our professional interventionists will come to you and meet with your family. Together, we will decide the best course of action and find the right treatment for your loved one.
Life can be normal and happy again for the entire family so long as the family stays on board to ensure that their loved one completes treatment and follows the after-treatment plan. By using intervention help, you can get your loved one willing to accept help, finish treatment, and become accountable for the future.
