What is an Intervention?
An intervention is a well-thought-out and structured plan, which can be executed by the
loved ones of the person in need of the intervention. An intervention is at its best when
planned in coordination with an intervention specialist (interventionist). During an
intervention loved one’s come together as a unit to inform your loved one about how
their addiction affects everyone around them, and guide them with the hopes of
- Shares specific scenarios of the addicted individual’s behaviour where it has affected
those around them.
- Lays out a well-thought-out, previously planned treatment plan, which clearly states the
steps, goals, and guidelines.
- Explains what each person present at the intervention will do in the event that treatment
is not accepted by the individual being intervened on.
Interventions in Alberta
Why can it take so long for an individual to get professional help? They refuse to admit
that they have an addiction. Denial or perspective can veer on how someone determines how far gone they are in terms of their alcohol or substance abuse. A resolution to this denial is an intervention. Drug or alcohol interventions involve the addicted individual and their loved ones gathering to effectively share how this addiction has affected each of them. A successful intervention can change your loved one’s life.
You owe it to them to try to do whatever it takes to get them the help that they so desperately need. Interventions can result in the individual becoming defensive, this is why finding the right intervention specialist or recovery coach for your loved one can make all the difference on their journey to rehabilitation.
