Addiction Interventions Los Angeles CA

Those suffering from addiction often have a difficult time admitting they have a problem and seeking the help they need on their own. Addiction is a progressive illness that affects not only the body but also the mind. Because of this, it can be tough for an individual to understand the extent of the damage they are doing to themselves and/or others. By receiving treatment, an individual can get the help they need to understand the root cause of their illness.

An intervention is an excellent way to open a dialogue with an individual and allow them to get the help they need. During the intervention, the person suffering from addiction is able to learn more about the chaos and damage they are causing, along with how they are hurting the ones they love. From there, they can be presented with the option to fight their addiction and begin their journey to sobriety.

Interventions can be extremely difficult to stage. Because of this, it’s best to seek the help of a professional interventionist to ensure the intervention is productive and helpful. The specialists at Addiction Interventions in San Francisco have years of experience in the healthcare field and specialize in helping individuals to get the treatment they deserve. They understand the complexities of addiction and mental illness, and they are able to tailor a plan to meet the specific needs of each individual. Our expert interventionists will help you to stage your intervention and offer support to your loved one.

Why an Intervention?

Those who are struggling with substance abuse can cause a significant amount of harm to their loved ones and themselves. This may be physical, emotional, and/or psychological. They may not even realize how much they are hurting the ones around them and destroying their own lives. This can be extremely frustrating and disheartening for loved ones.

An intervention gives the friends and family of an individual suffering from addiction the chance to come together and encourage them to get the treatment they need. They are able to express their concerns and discuss the harm being caused in a safe and controlled environment. Once their concerns are expressed, they can encourage the individual to get help.

With the help of an intervention specialist, the topic can be broached in an effective, helpful, and positive way. This allows the loved ones and the individual to have a productive dialogue that increases the chances of the individual seeking help to overcome their addiction.

Types of Intervention

Addiction can take different forms. Because of this, interventions need to be tailored to the needs of each individual. Below are some of the most common forms of addiction and how an interventionist can help:

Alcohol Abuse

Oftentimes those who struggle with alcohol addiction seem “functional” on the surface. They may be able to hold down a job and meet their obligations. Over time, the alcohol begins to win the battle, and the consequences for the individual who is struggling will grow. The individual may also be causing major distress to their friends and family members—even if they don’t realize it. 

A professional interventionist is able to create a productive environment where the loved ones of the alcoholic can discuss the addict’s disease and how it is hurting them. From there, they can encourage their loved ones to seek the help they deserve. 

With an alcohol intervention, it’s important for the whole family to be on board. If you have a loved one suffering from the disease of alcohol addiction, contact Addiction Interventions in San Francisco. We’d be happy to discuss intervention options with you.

Drug Abuse

Those that are addicted to drugs can have a negative impact on their own lives, and the lives of those around them. Over time, this can lead to resentment and anger. Because of this built-up resentment, an intervention may be difficult to stage without the help of a professional. 

A professional interventionist is able to create a healthy dialogue where the concerns of friends and family can be discussed. There is no guarantee that the intervention will lead to success, but with a professional interventionist helping out, the chances are greatly increased. If the individual decides to decline help, the loved ones can then set boundaries to mitigate the harm the individual will continue to cause.

If you find that your loved one is suffering from a drug problem, reach out to Addiction Interventions. We will help you to stage an intervention that encourages your loved one to seek help. The earlier you can stage an intervention, the better. Allow us to help you to encourage your loved ones to quit using and get the help they need.

Dual Diagnosis

Dual diagnosis interventions can be particularly difficult to stage, as the individual isn’t just suffering from one disease—they are suffering from multiple. Mental illness adds a layer of complexity to the intervention process, and the intervention will likely need to be approached in a unique way. Drugs and alcohol may also be used by the individual to “treat” mental illness, and once the individual decides to quit, the mental illness can surface.

With dual diagnosis interventions, it’s important for the family to approach the intervention in a motivational way. This allows the individual to identify the problems that the addiction is causing and set personal goals. From there, friends and family members can encourage the dual diagnosis individual to seek treatment.

If you suspect that mental illness is a factor, make sure you work with a professional interventionist. Our experts have a wealth of knowledge about both addiction and mental illness. The knowledge and experience they bring with them will greatly increase the chances of a successful dual diagnosis intervention.

Detox Services

The first stage of recovery involves detoxification (detox), in which the individual rids their body of drugs and/or alcohol. This can come with mild or severe withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms can be extremely dangerous or even deadly. Make sure you have a treatment center or medical facility in mind that offers detoxification services. This way, if your loved one decides to seek help, they can get clean in a healthy and safe way.

Johnson Model Intervention

The Johnson Intervention Model is a more straightforward form of intervention. It is also the most common. With the Johnson Model, the loved ones let the individual know that they’ve hit their limit and if the patient doesn’t seek treatment, they will part ways. This model can help an individual to better see how dire the consequences will be if they don’t seek help.

ARISE

The ARISE intervention model is an excellent option for those addicts that haven’t quite hit the bottom yet but still have a problem. The ARISE model is designed to be slow and gradual. Over a period of time, the loved ones of the individual who is struggling can gently persuade the individual to seek the help they need. ARISE has an 83% success rate of getting an individual into treatment within three weeks.

Executive Intervention

The ARISE intervention model is an excellent option for those addicts that haven’t quite hit the bottom yet but still have a problem. The ARISE model is designed to be slow and gradual. Over a period of time, the loved ones of the individual who is struggling can gently persuade the individual to seek the help they need. ARISE has an 83% success rate of getting an individual into treatment within three weeks.

Crisis Intervention

The crisis intervention model is for addicts that need immediate help. These addicts are suffering greatly and experiencing severe physical, emotional, and/or psychological pain. It is important to stabilize an individual that needs crisis intervention before they go to treatment. After they are stabilized, they can be transferred to a treatment facility.
