An Addiction Intervention Can Prevent A Loved One From Spiraling Further Out Of Control
Addiction intervention’s save lives! They also help families to get out of the seemingly endless destructive loop of addiction themselves. Substance-abuse can leave a family confused, frustrated and at a loss for how to help. This lack of knowledge is completely understandable. There is likely a lot of medical problems the family is not skilled in addressing. If your loved one had some other illness you would go to a health care provider and seek their guidance to treat the problem. This should be no different with addiction, so whether you choose our service or not, bringing in a skilled intervention practitioner is the best way to address this very complicated and misunderstood condition.
The addiction intervention professional you choose is going to make a big difference. There are 2 basic types of intervention approaches. Confrontational and Non-Confrontational. Most intervention professionals will use a confrontational approach. This confrontational approach may be appropriate in extreme circumstances. Especially when someone’s life is in serious risk due to their substance-use. For a lot of individuals the confrontational approach just doesn’t work. You might get the individual into treatment but once there, they become angry and bitter and don’t engage because of the way they’ve been forced into participating. The treatment process ends up being unsuccessful, the family is out thousands of dollars and they are right back where they started from.
Craft Is A Non-Confrontational Addiction Intervention Approach
Our non-confrontational approach is based on Community Reinforcement and Family Training, or CRAFT. This non-confrontational approach to substance-use has the best success in getting people into treatment. We are very successful in convincing the loved one that they cannot do this alone. We convince them with an intervention to accept help. This allows them to participate in a program with a much needed level of willingness and acceptance. Please note, non-confrontational doesn’t mean we take a passive approach. It means how we address it is more likely to produce the results we want. That result is getting your loved one treatment for addiction.
Risk of alcohol or drug use is something that an addicted individual has to deal with for the rest of their lives
The Community Reinforcement and Family Training process is beneficial in many ways. It educates the family on how to interact with the addicted individual now and in the future. Risk of substance-use is something that an addicted individual has to deal with for the rest of their lives, and so will the family. The CRAFT training will empower the family to start helping now and in the years to come.
Often times a combination of addiction intervention approaches is required. No addiction intervention is the same so each one requires a unique and specifically tailored approach to the circumstances of that individual and family. Our skills, training and many years of experience allow us to customize the most effective way to guide the individual to accepting help, and move everyone towards healing and wellness.
Addiction is a powerful physical and psychological force. Without proper help addiction will continue to progress and cause devastating consequence for everyone in contact with it.
