What is an Intervention?

How to Help a Loved One With an Addiction

If you or a loved one is thinking about rehab for addiction, forget everything you heard about recovery centers, and let us tell you about our intervention services in New Jersey. We know that addiction is a disease that affects the mind, body, and spirit. We want our clients to be free from addictions, but we don’t stop there. We treat the entire person. If you’re worried about someone who doesn’t want to hear that message, we can plan an intervention to to persuade them to get the help they need.

What Is an Intervention?

Friends and family want to help, but confronting someone about an addiction is an emotional ordeal. Despite all the love and good intentions, tempers are likely to flare, and the desire to help may become a stumbling block. That’s why we have a trained interventionist to guide the process.

The purpose of an intervention is to help everyone get past their denial and fear of change in order to get the help the addict needs to get well. The interventionist knows how to communicate with the addict and the loved ones, educating everyone about addiction and leading them to the next level of action. Participants plan their roles and words ahead of time, keeping their comments judgment-free and supportive.

To get the addict to the meeting, it may be necessary to limit information. The structured session takes place with the supervision of the intervention specialist, but all members share carefully prepared statements expressing their love and concern. They also state the ways the addict’s behavior is hurting them, explain why, and describe the changes they’d like to see.

How to Have an Intervention

The intervention can be painful, exposing personal information about the family system, but the goal is to bring everyone out of denial and set up a plan to make positive change. There’s no place for anger or blame, but there is also no place for smoothing over difficulties or making excuses for past behavior. This is a time to help everybody understand the process and answer questions like "what is an intervention?" and how to have an intervention with a good outcome.

What Is Holistic Therapy?

Holistic therapy helps patients figure out what caused their addictions and learn new ways of coping and managing their cravings. By encouraging a healthy lifestyle and building self-confidence, old habits become less appealing. We don't promise that relapses won't happen, but we'll make it easier to understand what's going on and make a fresh start. We provide evidence-based medical care and counseling, but we also offer a range of holistic therapies, including those listed below, that help to fill the emptiness that created the addiction in the first place:
  • Yoga
  • Reiki
  • Acupuncture
  • Meditation
  • Art therapy
  • Massage
