An intervention is the best way to encourage an addicted person to accept the help that a treatment program can provide. When people are given an opportunity to learn more about their addictions, and they’re prompted to get help by people who love them and care for them, they may find the strength to take steps that just never seemed possible in the past.
Even though interventions can be so very helpful, some families never take advantage of the opportunity. Often, they don’t stage an intervention because they have persistent beliefs about these conversations that just aren’t true. These are four such misconceptions that could keep families from healing.
1. Interventions Always Involve Fighting
In an article produced for the Portland Business Journal, the mother of an addicted son suggests that she didn’t hold an intervention because she thought it would involve friends and family members wailing on her son. She wanted to spare her child the pain and discomfort that a talk like this might cause, and she thought skipping an intervention was the best way to achieve her goal.
In reality, an intervention can provide an incredible opportunity for healing, and conflict isn’t mandatory. Often, during these conversations, families simply express feelings of love and support, helping the addicted person to understand that healing is possible. No screaming, cursing or insults are required.
2. Interventions Work Best When the Addict Has Hit Rock Bottom
While people who have experienced strong and severe consequences due to addiction might be eager to change their ways for the better, families can certainly take action long before the person is in danger of losing everything. As the Mayo Clinic suggests, an intervention can provide an opportunity for the addict to make changes long before the situation grows dire.
3. Interventions Are Just for Family Members
While parents, children, spouses and other members of an addict’s immediate family have access to specific details that are vital in an intervention, they’re not the only ones who can persuade an addict to change. In fact, many of the most successful interventions have included friends, coworkers, neighbors, clergy members and others who aren’t technically members of the family but who are close to the addict. Opening up the group in this way could allow the addicted person to really see the consequences of the addiction, and that might lead to long-lasting change.
4. There’s Only One Way to Hold an Intervention
Some families resist the idea of holding an intervention because they assume there’s only one way to hold the talk, and they don’t think that approach will work for the person they love. Different interventionists, however, have access to a variety of different intervention approaches, including:
All of these intervention approaches are different, and an intervention that works best for one might not be best for another. By hiring a professional, families might tap into just the right technique that can motivate the person in need.
