I'd love to change the world, but I don't know what to do. Do I leave it up to you?

Addiction is a progressive Dis-Ease, 
it continues to get worse, never better.

What to say in an alcohol or drug intervention?

If at all possible get a professional to facilitate the alcohol intervention or your best intentions could turn into the same old thing.  

The addict could just feel like you are nagging again.

Before meeting with the suffering addict or alcoholic, you must have a rehab  (selected & payment arrangements made) We present them with a done deal. No delays. 

Intervention alone does little to nothing. 
You can't talk a person out of addiction. 

It's like teaching the pig to sing. 
Treatment is the vital next step, and it is best to immediately follow the intervention with a rehab admission the same day.

Change your thinking to change your life
Addiction means using against your will. 
You can not talk someone out of being addicted. 

The counselor facilitates an intense family meeting. 
Gets the intervention party completely organized.

We all agree when we feel ready. 
We know what each of us will say in the alcohol intervention, and how to say it.
And what is not to be said 
We decide who speaks first, next, and last.  

Hence, we learn that when the intervention is over, we keep the stimuli very low key. 
Therefore we limit conversation and get the person out the door without a fuss. 
We prearrange an appropriate ride to the airport, a driver rather than a family member who may elicit any feelings. 

Consequently, setting the attitudes of the family members and intervention participants.

Rise above thinking you're bad and we're good, so you have to listen to us, or we will do something wrong to you.'
       
The intervention party gets all our heads together in unity knowing the addict is sick and suffering and everyone is hurting and disturbed by this sad illness.  We are here to help.

The interventionist guides the family down deep into their feelings, down to the point where they can even make an apology to the addict about something that they wish they had done differently in the relationship.  

In conclusion, a shift in thinking is all that is necessary for the person to say yes, "I'll go to treatment."
Our odds of having a successful intervention vastly improve as the presenting party also shifts their individual and collective thinking. 


Professional intervention means getting to say things to the addict and to each other that many families take to their grave, without ever having expressed the power of the relationships. 
Each person in their own way takes a few seconds to say that they care about the well-being of the addict or alcoholic. 
Such as... "I am your Father and I have wanted the best for you since before you were born." 
It's natural and right to do this intervention. 

Everyone involved is changed and enlightened by the experience 
Maybe give a little tear, then we take the addict with us and transport them to the rehab, introduce them, show them around, and tuck them in. 


Family intervention done without a professional present can often turn into running up on the addict, maybe at the wrong time of day, with "hey we love you, go to rehab, or we will have to cut you off." 

The addict talks you out of it, as usual,

or you may get angry and no one gets what they want or need out of this type of confrontation. Even with the best intentions, it 's hard to be mindful in a situation with people you love. 

Being as thoroughly prepared as possible takes experience.

We do the intervention when the person wakes up. (Whatever time is their usual morning) We go in before they get high or stressed and angry from the events of their day.   

Prepare the night before the 
Alcohol Intervention 

You have composed your letter, and we have analysed and rehearsed our approach.  After all of this, we get started on logistics.

First get a rolling on wheels, easy to move suitcase. 
Next pull together some of what they will need in treatment. 
They 
probably only need about a week's worth of clothes. Get the bag somewhat packed for them the night before the intervention.  If the clothes are dirty or you don't want to disturb their things buy them the things they need to travel so all loose ends, we can think of, are tied up. As a result, it is all arranged and easy allowing them to leave with the professional.

Some people need to have some say so in the planning we must allow for this with some choices.
Intervention is a rescue.
No matter what is said, they want help. Addicts dream of being a regular person with healthy lives. 

At least they want the consequences to stop.  They want to believe you care and there is hope

Discuss and Know where things like their glasses, computer cords, medications, their essential belonging are.  Organization is key.

The intervention party needs to talk it out and come up with all of the reasons the 'guest of honor' is likely to say as to why they can't possible go to treatment today.  Work together to make a clear path for them to go to rehab, right now within the next few hours.

Together as a unit know today is the day. A high percentage of people confronted in the family intervention say "I will go in a couple of weeks, I will go to out patients, I will cut down, I go to AA on my own, I don't want you to spend the money on rehab, or I will switch to beer and cut out the vodka.  As soon as I get this job, as soon as I get a divorce, as soon as I get married, when the baby comes, I get more money then I will be OK. 

Have a professional interventionist with you to plan and present this therapeutic love filled event then take the client into treatment that very day.

 If you are thinking of free treatment for indigents it's tough to have an intervention. You will have to come up with some plan that includes the person themselves calling at a particular time everyday (they must make the call themselves - you cannot call them) to the Salvation Army or another Charity type placement.  Their are multitudes of addicts and alcoholics trying to get a bed at the Saly with no money.  The person wanting the bed has to personally get in line for the next available spot. The standard set up is the prospective client calls daily at the same time and must not be late with their call or they lose their place in line. Waiting list are generally about 6 to 12 weeks long.  Thereby to have an intervention and have to wait a long time for the admit is very difficult. If the addict is physically addicted to alcohol, opiates (heroin - pain medications), or benzodiazepines (anxiety or sleep medications Xanex, Adavan, Klonopin)  and need a medical detox, they must have medical help or they will have to keep using until they get it.  They could die in withdrawal. 
         If you have to use public services, look up www.salvationarmyusa.org and asked their advice.  

There is lots of difference between public and private rehab services. 

    Our referral services and interventions private pay or paid by private health insurance.
