Getting Started With An Intervention
An intervention is a process, not an event. Our trained interventionists and addiction professionals are here to guide families through this process. Based on the successful Love First Intervention method, developed by Jeff and Debra Jay, our interventions are family focused and approached in a loving and non-shaming way for our Michigan based patients.
When you are going through the stress and turmoil of worrying about your loved one, it can be easy to give into anger and blame. That is why we are here to coach families on the following key elements throughout the intervention planning process:
- Preparing the intervention team, which can consist of family members, friends, relatives, neighbors, or other influential people in a person’s life.
- Addressing all of the family member’s concerns and making sure that everyone shares the same vision for their loved one moving forward.
- Developing intervention letters that outlines their concerns, love, support, and commitment to continue to help them throughout their recovery process without enabling their behavior any longer.
The main goal of an intervention is to have a loved one accept help and go to treatment. As a part of our Michigan drug and alcohol intervention planning, we work with the family to develop treatment recommendations that would best suit their loved one. If the intervention is successful and their loved one accepts treatment, we handle all of the travel reservations and transportation needs.
