Denial is a primary characteristic of addiction. Addicts will often minimize drug use and the adverse effects substance abuse is having on their lives. It can be very difficult for family members and people closest to know how to address these problems without outside help. In such cases, intervention is a necessary and invaluable part of the recovery process. With professional guidance and support, the family can help the suffering addict to recognize the impact of substance abuse on their life.
Working Toward a Successful Intervention
A successful intervention should be well planned beforehand. If the family and friends of an addict plan ahead how to best approach the issues and identify the most supportive roles for everyone involved, it will produce better outcomes for the addict. Having a plan for treatment beforehand also helps to keep the intervention more focused and directed. An intervention can provide a framework for the entire recovery process and ensure a positive, hopeful environment for the addict from start to finish. In addition to a carefully selected intervention team of family and close friends, having the assistance of someone who knows how to properly assess the needs of the addict is paramount to a successful intervention. An addiction specialist can make a dramatic difference, and can effectively help you create a treatment plan by identifying the most appropriate level of care for each individual. Having your specialist at the intervention as a facilitator will also be very helpful, especially in cases where your loved one might have an angry or violent reaction to the intervention.
At Renaissance Recovery center, we provide Interventions. Our goal is to give appropriate and respectful guidance and direction to both the addict and their loved ones. This includes counseling the families on the process of intervention. Our addiction experts offer years of experience in intervention, assessment and treatment placement, and are available to give appropriate and respectful guidance to both the addict and their loved ones. Since addiction is dependent on individual biological and environmental factors, treatment must be flexible to be effective. There is not really a one size fits all approach to addiction treatment. We employ several measures to address the complex nature of addiction treatment, make a thorough assessment of the patient, and strive to make our program as effective as possible. One of the ways we do this is by adjusting to the needs of those in our program in order to create a comfortable and all inclusive environment. If Renaissance Recovery Center is not for you, we are prepared to make sure that individuals get involved with a treatment program that is effective for their own unique situation. We are committed to help each person find the best resources for detoxification, sober living, or any level of substance abuse treatment.
