Most people hate speaking in public. In fact, a study published in the International Journal of Psychophysiologyfound that people asked to speak in public tend to have higher blood pressure and faster pulses, and their bodies tended to excrete stress hormones. Unfortunately, there’s no way to hold an intervention without asking participants to perform a bit of public speaking. In fact, everyone involved will be required to read his or her intervention letter aloud. Holding a rehearsal can help cut down on the stress.
During an intervention rehearsal, each person reads his or her intervention letter out loud to the group. The interventionist speaks up if negative or blaming statements appear in the letters. Comments like, “You make me sick” aren’t helpful. Replacing that statement with, “Your behavior makes me feel depressed because I miss you” is more constructive.
Once the letters are refined, the family and the interventionist determine where all participants will sit, and the team will determine the speaking order. People who have a large amount of influence may be asked to speak first, as the goal is to keep the meeting short and direct the addict to treatment as quickly as possible.
The family may also come up with a series of contingency plans if the addict chooses to:
Refuse to enter a program
It’s possible that the addict is just not ready to enter a program, and the family will need to perform another intervention down the line. The goal of any intervention, successful or not, is to keep the relationship with the family intact. Families who prepare for the worst are able to handle the addict’s bad behavior without adding to the problem and destroying their relationships in the process. An interventionist can provide the guidance a family needs to prepare for these worst-case scenarios.
