Organizing a drug or alcohol intervention is the best way to convince an unwilling addict they need treatment. For too many families in South Carolina, substance abuse has been a long-standing problem. When you contact Newman Interventions to help you plan an intervention, the only goal is to save the addict’s life. Our intervention group is a nationwide service and provides family intervention services in South Carolina. Planning the intervention process takes communication and planning, but the whole thing can happen quickly.
How Family Intervention Works
The first day we arrive in South Carolina to do the intervention is spent educating the family. There may be some barriers to overcome, such as family enabling or the fear the family has for the addict. Drug and alcohol abuse changes people, and some addicts lash out violently towards the people who are closest to them. These are all things a certified interventionist will help with and prepare the family for what will come during the intervention. When the intervention takes place, it will be with the family or friends who are the strongest and most emotionally stable. This means it is not the family members who would give in to the addict when it comes down to setting a bottom line. The addict will sit among people he or she may look up to or respect.
Those who are taking part will read their family letters, which outline how the addiction is affecting their lives. A professional interventionist will help you write these letters and make suggestions. When the addict agrees to go to treatment, it should be a quick process of getting them out the door. This does not involve long goodbyes or any delay, which is why it is important to have the program and any financing taken care of. If you require help locating a drug rehab center in South Carolina, Newman Interventions will assist. We will also assist with exploring the different financial options you have for paying for drug rehab. Drug and alcohol addiction does not have to be a life-long problem, and an addict can find the treatment they need. When a family does not intervene, drug addiction does become worse. It also becomes more difficult to get them help when they are completely consumed by the drugs they are abusing.
