The steps of a family intervention
If you are worried about the health and wellbeing of a loved one, in relation to their drug or alcohol abuse, you can reach out to our team today. We can provide you with advice on the next best steps to starting a family intervention. We will always recommend that those hoping to intervene are prepared, understand the steps ahead, the potential consequences and the attitude they must follow when approaching addiction.
From here, our addiction specialists will contact appropriate family members, who will likely get involved in the family intervention. Once arrangements have been made, in a neutral setting, group therapy, with the individual will be recommended. Here, family members can share their concerns regarding substance abuse, mental health state and the idea of completing addiction treatment. Likewise, it gives family members the chance to fully understand and empathise with their loved one. Once all concerns have been shared, now the decision lies within the hands of the addict, which can go either way.
Please be mindful that a number of family intervention projects may be required to motivate full recovery. Some individuals do struggle with denial, delaying their motivation to recover from addiction. Yet, through our specialist guidance and intervention projects, we will offer intensive support to motivate a degree of success.

The value of early intervention
The sooner that a family intervention can be completed, the better, when considering timeframes. An early intervention, as soon as the warning signs of an addiction are present is the ideal situation. Here it is likely that an addiction is yet to deeply engrain itself, with a reduced level of denial and fear.
An early family intervention will also reduce the degree of damage experienced by all parties, with a large focus on the addicts physical and mental health.

Share your concerns, show that you care, and support your loved one through this challenge time through our family intervention projects here at Nova Recovery.
