How Addiction Interventions Work
Often initiated by a loved one or friend, addiction interventions are designed to help an addict realize they have a problem, they need help, and most importantly, they have support. Learn how to stage a successful addiction intervention.
How Addiction Interventions Work
Is your family member, significant other, friend, or spouse suffering from substance abuse? Substance abuse and dependence is not just a problem for the user. It is a problem for the user’s loved ones as well.
We at Addiction Interventions understand that you may be going through a difficult time. With our interventions, we can help not just the substance user but can aid you throughout the healing process as well.
Recovery can be a complicated process. However, we have simplified our addiction intervention methods and programs to better serve you.
We believe that the path to recovery from substance abuse is both an ongoing effort and a collaborative one. Together, you and your loved one can take the journey towards recovery.
Interventions for Addiction by Type:
Help for Drug Addictions
Get Comprehensive Drug Addiction Intervention
Most drug addiction intervention services operate on a treatment-focused paradigm. In other words, they focus on detoxification, managing withdrawal symptoms, and at times, cognitive behavioral therapy aimed at removing drug-dependent behavior.
Indeed, we agree that the above-mentioned have a place in any substance abuse treatment program. However, we believe in the importance of assessment, patient and family education, and consistent self-evaluation.
By knowing the importance of a clinical assessment, you can be better informed of whether or not to seek a drug abuse intervention service. By using our online form, you can have a better idea of your loved one’s substance dependence.
We also have detailed information on the nature of drug abuse. It is easy to be judgemental of the substance user. By viewing your loved one as a victim of substance abuse, you can take on the mindset required for being the right support person.
Help for Alcoholics
Get Alcohol Abuse Intervention Beyond Conventional Rehab Programs
Alcohol is one of the most widely accessible substances on the planet. In the United States, more than 85% of people 18 or over have had alcohol. The accessibility of alcohol has created the illusion that it is acceptable. In the mind of an alcoholic, it is a necessity.
It is for this reason that we consider alcohol intervention a different category of substance abuse. Our distinction also impacts the resources and alcohol abuse intervention we offer.
Due to the behavioral aspect of alcohol addiction, cognitive behavioral therapy stands at the forefront of alcohol addiction intervention. The most common psychological defense mechanisms alcoholics have include denial (“I’m not an alcoholic. I drink Occasionally.”) and rationalization (“Alcohol allows me to function well. I only drink occasionally!”).
We believe that it is best to begin by identifying these behaviors and presenting them to the alcoholic. The presentation of their defense mechanisms and behavior can create a willingness to participate in an alcohol rehabilitation program.
As always, we believe that alcohol intervention is a collaborative undertaking. Besides medical professionals, the family also plays a crucial role in recovery and rehabilitation. We have resources and services for both the alcoholic and the family members or anyone else connected to the sufferer.
Interventions Aren't Just for Addicts

Support persons can be anyone from family members to friends to spouses. They can even be the victim’s colleagues.
Supporting a loved one or companion in their recovery can be challenging on many levels. It can challenge you financially, emotionally, and psychologically. With our educational resources and services, we can help equip you with the right knowledge.
Our educational resources and services for support persons can help you learn about:
- The importance of self-care
- Self-evaluation and assessment
- How to process emotions while caring for a loved one with a drug or alcohol addiction
- Emergency interventions and services
Equipped with the right knowledge, you can acquire helpful skills and the attitude to help you care for your loved one.
Getting better is only half the battle. True recovery and rehabilitation from drug addiction or alcohol abuse occur perpetually. This is why we believe in the importance of what happens after recovery.
Going to follow-ups and taking part in post-recovery programs is crucial to the development of healthy behaviors. These post-recovery services also help address underlying issues that led to drug addiction or substance abuse.
We believe that recovery is not an event that happens in a day, week, month, or year. It is a choice made day in and day out. We can help you and your loved one towards permanent recovery.
