It might be easy for family members and friends to spot addiction in someone they love. It might be more difficult for the addict to see his or her own behavior clearly. In fact, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, nearly all American adults who need treatment for alcohol abuse don’t think they need help.
Breaking through this wall of denial takes a bit of effort, and that’s why most interventionists suggest that interventions take place outside the addict’s home. During an intervention, when the addict is confronted with the stark facts of an addiction, the addict might respond with a deep urge to simply terminate the conversation. At home, the addict can simply walk away to a back room when the tough talk begins.
Placing the addict in an unfamiliar location allows the family to control the situation and help ensure that the talk moves forward. Good intervention locations include:
The interventionist’s office
The addict’s church
A hotel room
A friend’s home
Once the team has settled on a location, they need to choose a date and time. Ideally, the group will hold the intervention when the addict is not under the influence. For some families, this means they must hold the intervention early in the morning. For other families, this means picking up the addict after he or she completes the workday and holding the meeting immediately afterward.
All members of the team must be present for the intervention, meaning that the time chosen can’t conflict with any of their schedules. Time is of the essence, however, so it’s best not to wait weeks or months before holding the intervention. If participants must do a bit of schedule juggling in order to make a chosen time work, that’s a small sacrifice to make to help the addict recover.
