Having an Intervention
If someone you love is living with alcoholism but does not seem to recognize how badly they are damaging their health, relationships and/or career and future options, then an alcohol rehab intervention may be the best way to confront them on the issue. You can run your alcohol rehab intervention alone with the support of friends and family or in conjunction with a professional interventionist.
At Michael’s House, we provide a safe alcohol rehab program as a destination for your loved one after their alcohol rehab intervention.
For more information about how we can help you get your loved one the treatment they need, contact us at our call center today: 1-877-345-8494.
Does Your Loved One Need It?
A few nights of alcohol abuse or occasional nights of binge drinking across a year do not necessarily signify the need for alcohol rehab, much less an intervention to that effect. However, if your loved one cannot stop drinking alone despite multiple promises to do so, or if your loved one has been told by their doctor, their boss or their significant other that there will be significant consequences if the drinking doesn’t stop, then an alcohol rehab intervention may help you explain the dire nature of the situation to your loved one.
Few people know your loved one as well as you do. Follow your instinct: if you see that alcohol is destroying your loved one’s life, then an alcohol rehab intervention is more than appropriate, it’s necessary.
- Who to invite
- Where to hold it
- When (the date and time)
- Who will run it
For the invitees, include those who are close to your loved one: family members including siblings and parents, significant others, close friends. Do not include children unless they are older and have something to contribute.
Choose where and when to hold the alcohol rehab intervention according to what is most convenient for your loved one. Remember: your loved one should not know about the intervention in advance, so choose a place and time that seem natural to your loved one. This may mean your home first thing in the morning, a friend’s house they often go to after work, et cetera.
This person can help keep the proceedings as unemotional and nonjudgmental as possible, helping everyone to focus on the goal at hand: helping your loved one get the alcohol addiction treatment he or she needs.
