Co-Worker Alcohol Interventions
For starters, how do you know when a co-worker alcohol intervention is really necessary? If you decide to plan one, what do you say? And should you run a co-worker’s alcohol intervention yourself or should you bring in a professional interventionist?
At Michael’s House, we can help you with the details of organizing a co-worker alcohol intervention or put you in touch with a professional interventionist who can help you in a more hands-on manner.
Call us today if you’d like to learn more about co-worker alcohol interventions or reserve a spot for them at our alcohol rehab.
When Do You Need One?
When after work drinking comes into the office or on the job site, when hangovers interfere with work or create lost work days, when alcohol begins to affect the quality and reputation of the entire business, then it’s time to sit down and have a conversation with the alcoholic.
If you are at the end of your rope with a co-worker and feel like their alcohol abuse and addiction has gone too far and there is no further recourse, then it’s time for a co-worker alcohol intervention.
What Do You Say?
A co-worker alcohol intervention is the last attempt to help someone get well and save their job. Your goal is singular: to help them recognize that their alcoholism is adversely affecting everyone around them and if they don’t go to alcohol rehab and get the treatment they need, they’re fired. It’s that simple.
Individuals who take part in a co-worker’s alcohol intervention will have a few minutes to talk about incidents or events in which the alcoholic’s actions negatively affected them or the job. By using specific things that happen, you are able to point out to your co-worker how severe their alcoholism is without getting emotional.
Do You Need a Professional Interventionist?
Taking time to plan an intervention, secure your co-worker a place at an alcohol rehab, and organize the participants may not be feasible. In these circumstances, you can utilize the services of a professional interventionist.
A professional interventionist will come to your place of business and get the information they need from you to organize the event. They will prepare the people who will be involved and help them understand what a co-worker alcohol intervention entails. At the event itself, they will take charge. They’ll even escort your co-worker to alcohol rehab should they choose treatment. You are free to participate in the event and spend the rest of your time focusing on what you need to get done.
