Addiction Interventions Los Angeles CA
It can be extremely difficult to overcome addiction. Not only do many individuals who struggle with addiction have trouble admitting they have a problem, but they also may not know where to go for help. Addiction is a progressive illness, and an individual who is suffering may not understand the extent of the damage they are doing to themselves and those around them. With the help of an intervention, these individuals can better see the issues that are being caused by their addiction and get the help they need.
Through an intervention, loved ones can open a dialogue with the individual who is struggling and encourage them to get help. Family and friends can let their loved ones know how their actions are negatively impacting their lives. They then can offer a positive solution to the individual that allows them to get the help they need.
For most people, an intervention isn’t a common occurrence. Because of this, it can be very difficult to stage an intervention. With the help of a professional interventionist, an intervention can be helpful and productive and allow an individual to get the help they need. Our expert interventionists at Addiction Interventions in Beverly Hills have years of experience in the healthcare field and know the best ways to approach interventions.
Our specialists can work with you to better understand the scope of the addiction, and then tailor an intervention to meet the specific needs of your loved one.
Why an Intervention?
Whether it is physical, emotional, or mental, addiction causes a significant amount of harm both to the individual who is struggling and their loved ones. Someone that is addicted to drugs and/or alcohol often doesn’t even realize the amount of harm they are causing.
With intervention, the loved ones can express how the addictive tendencies are hurting them and encourage them to get help. This can be very hard for friends and family to do on their own. They may not have the know-how to stage an intervention, or they may be too emotionally involved. With a professional interventionist, loved ones are better able to connect with the individual who is struggling in a way that is helpful and productive. From there, they can express their concerns and encourage them to seek treatment.
A productive dialogue is extremely important for intervention. With an intervention specialist, the family and friends can express their concerns positively and effectively. This, in turn, makes it easier to convince an individual to get treatment.
Interventions need to be tailored to meet the specific needs of each individual, as addiction takes different forms. Below are the most common forms of addiction and how an interventionist can help:
Addressing alcoholism can be a challenge as alcohol is both readily available and legal. Many people can drink without a problem, and an alcoholic may be convinced that they are one of these people. Unlike normal drinkers, an alcoholic causes massive harm to their loved ones and/or themselves.
Some individuals who struggle with alcohol abuse can hold down a job and meet their obligations, so they believe they don’t have a problem. Because of this, it’s important to stage an intervention so they better understand the problems they are causing and can get the help they need.
If you have a loved one who is struggling with alcohol addiction, contact Addiction Interventions. We’d be happy to help you to plan out and execute your intervention. With our help, your loved ones will be encouraged to get the help they need.
Drug addiction has an incredibly damaging effect on an individual and those close to them. Not only is drug abuse a destructive force, but it can also lead to dire consequences and create tension within the family unit.
A professional interventionist can facilitate a healthy dialogue between the individual struggling with drug abuse and their loved ones. While success isn’t guaranteed, the expertise of a professional interventionist increases the chances of the individual getting the help they need and deserve.
If you have a loved one suffering from drug addiction, reach out to Addiction Interventions. We will work with you to stage an intervention that increases the chances of your loved one getting help and finding peace.
Oftentimes, addiction and mental health problems go hand in hand. Mental illness can be covered up by drug use and alcohol abuse, and an individual may be using drugs and/or alcohol to deal with their mental health issues. By removing the drugs and/or alcohol, mental illness can be better diagnosed and treated.
For an individual with dual diagnoses, the intervention process needs to be approached uniquely. The focus of the intervention will be on identifying problems and encouraging the individual to set personal goals. From there, treatment can be encouraged by friends and family.
If you believe mental illness may be a factor in your loved one’s addiction, make sure you work with a specialist. At Addiction Interventions in Beverly Hills, we have trained interventionists who best know how to work with individuals that suffer from both addiction and mental illness. Hiring an interventionist will increase the likelihood that your loved one will accept their addiction and get the help they need and deserve.
Your loved ones need to get medical care when they are quitting their addiction. An individual may go through a detox (detoxification) phase when they quit, in which the body gets rid of the drugs and alcohol that remain. Withdrawals range from mild to severe and may even be deadly if not properly handled! Make sure you have a medical facility or treatment center that offers detox services ready.
Johnson Model Intervention
The Johnson Model intervention is the most common form of intervention. With this type of intervention, loved ones express how important it is for their friend or family member to get help, and what the consequences will be if they don’t.
It’s easy for a successful person to think they don’t have a problem. But while an individual may be successful at work, addiction can still be an issue. An executive intervention allows family members and friends to express how they are suffering and how the actions of the individual are causing them distress.
Crisis interventions are for addicts that need immediate assistance. These interventions are intended to help individuals that are experiencing severe mental, emotional, and/or physical pain. Once an individual is stabilized after a crisis intervention, they can be transported to a treatment facility.
Other forms of intervention may be available, which include:
- Teen Intervention
- Mental Health Intervention
Types of Intervention
There isn’t a “one size fits all” approach for drug/alcohol intervention. Because of this, there are various types of interventions available to meet the needs of different individuals. Below are some of the most common types of interventions:
