Intervention

It is incredibly painful to watch a loved one struggling with alcoholism, drug problems, an eating disorder or other destructive behavior. Figuring out how to confront the issue can be tough and addicts are often in denial and resistive to conversations about their problem. Increasingly, families are opting for an intervention approach. An intervention is a professionally directed face-to-face meeting of family members, friends and/or colleagues with the person suffering from addiction. During the intervention, the addict’s loved ones present the consequences of addiction and ask him or her to accept treatment. An intervention can be conducted without an intervention professional, but consulting an addiction specialist, such as a licensed alcohol and drug counselor, a social worker, a psychologist, a psychiatrist, or an interventionist, can help you organize a more effective intervention.

When I think of intervention I think of therapy focused upon creating behavioral change much like strategic therapy. Since 2018 I have received supervision and guidance in this form of therapy, and I enjoy using it to help clients accomplish the change they desire.
