Drug and alcohol addiction affects the whole family, not just the addict.
It’s often hard for a family member to watch a loved one suffer from an addiction, whether it be to drugs or alcohol. Family members frequently think that they can fix an addict with a little personal help, but end up enabling them even more. With the help of Andy Bhatti Interventions & addiction services, families will learn how to write letters to the addict to allow their feelings and emotions to be heard.
Before performing an intervention, Andy will sit down with the family to have a pre-intervention. During this time, he talks to the family about codependency and enabling. After the family intervention, the treatment options will be discussed.
Andy says it’s common to find out that the addict is addicted to more than one drug that their family doesn’t know about. If so, a different treatment centre may work better for the addict. Our interventionist will help find the right treatment centre for the family’s financial situation and that will work best for the addict’s needs.
After the intervention and the client is in a treatment centre, Andy Bhatti Interventions will set up a family continuing care case management program. One of our interventionists will also help the family get the therapy needed to help heal from the loved one’s addiction.
Our family intervention services includes teaching them how to deal with the addict or alcoholic when they’re back from treatment, we will guide them in the direction of finding Al-Anon meetings while the patient is in treatment, and help the family find a marriage counselor, or child trauma counselor if needed.
Our intervention company has the ability to connect family members with a private outpatient doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists or any trauma therapy, if they require help. The family will stay connected with the interventionist while the loved one is in treatment to make sure they’re doing well.
One of the most important things when it comes to a family intervention Andy believes is knowing that it’s never too early for an intervention.
“Years ago people used to say addicts and alcoholics needed to hit rock bottom. Nowadays, that isn’t true. Rock bottom means death. With fentanyl being in Xanax, cough syrup, Molly, cocaine, crystal meth and heroin it means someone can take this deadly drug without knowing and end up dead from an overdose. It’s never too early to call for an intervention to save someone’s life.”
An intervention is about saving lives and preventing addicts and alcoholics from dying. Calling an interventionist and saving a family’s loved one will help the addict realize that anyone can become clean and sober and live an amazing life in recovery.
