Why Being Organized Leads to a Successful Intervention
Home〉Articles〉Why Being Organized Leads to a Successful Intervention
Interventions are the initial phase of the ongoing process of recovering from a drug addiction. Successful interventions help addicts face their addiction and provide them the opportunity to seek treatment. They also provide support for family members who have been affected by the addict’s drug abuse. However, it’s important to remember that an intervention is a complex event that requires planning and experience. Properly organizing an intervention enhances the probability of complete, long-term success.
An intervention exposes the drug addict to people in his life who are being affected by his drug use. Each participant brings another viewpoint that helps that addict understand the far-reaching adverse effects of his actions.
Ensuring that everyone is able to attend the intervention takes careful planning and organization. Interventions should be scheduled so that all the important people in the addict’s life are able to attend. Without proper organization, the attendance of an intervention may be lacking, and without the right people, the impact an intervention is severely reduced.
An intervention should not be a series of monologues, but rather an intense discussion. Organization helps everyone understand their roles and the goal of the intervention. Once everyone knows what they want to say and how long they have to say it, they are able to keep their comments short but powerful. This allows everyone to voice their thoughts and gives the addict time to understand and process the entirety of the event.
An unorganized intervention often dissolves into a series of arguments that can be counterproductive and cause the event to fail. However, if the timetable of the intervention is properly scheduled, the discussion flows and covers all the points that are necessary to help the addict recover and allow the family members to heal.
Treatment After the Intervention
Organizing an intervention does not stop once the actual event is over. The addict as well the other participants often require follow-up consultation to see whether the effects generated by the intervention are still evident. Careful organization allows the the interventionist to create a timeline that specifies when to check on each member. A successful intervention shows its results for long after the intervention is over, according to Mayo Clinic. Addicts should still be on the road to recovery and family members should be mending any damaged relationships and repairing any social damage caused by their loved one’s drug abuse.
Taking the time to thoroughly organize an intervention is required for success. Spontaneously staging an intervention is unadvisable and often unreasonable. Each member needs to know what the goal of the event is and what his or her role is in the big picture. Without organization, there is not enough information reaching the participants and often the intervention stagnates. If you need help planning and organizing an intervention, contact us today. We can provide you with information to help you plan your intervention, such as referring you to a professional interventionist in your area. In some cases, the interventionist can take over the lead role, which will allow you to focus on your own feelings toward the addict. In most cases, a professional interventionist provides all the organization necessary to ensure a successful intervention, thereby alleviating the burden on the addict’s loved ones.
