Before your loved one can begin the important work of recovery, they first must recognize they have a problem — and agree to get help. It’s not always an easy conversation to have. But the behavioral health experts at Harbor Village can provide the support and guidance you need to approach the subject with confidence and sensitivity.
Some individuals in active addiction are ready to get help and are eager to get started in drug rehab or alcohol rehab. Generally speaking, though, more people tend to deny that they have a problem with drugs or alcohol, and that the emotional response from their family and friends is overblown. These comments can be hurtful, but understand that the main goal isn’t necessarily for them to admit their addiction; it’s to get them to treatment.
An intervention isn’t something to attempt without considerable preparation. The goal isn’t to make you feel better. It’s to convince your loved ones to get the addiction treatment they need for a healthier, more fulfilling life.
There’s so much more to know about staging an intervention. The behavioral health staff at Harbor Village can give you the support you need to encourage wise choices. So, give us a call. We’re happy to help you work with your loved one, so they can begin their recovery journey.
