Easter is a good time for an Intervention
When planning an intervention for a loved one timing is often a subject of debate, especially once holidays come around. Many families tend to sweep the unpleasant things under the rug around holidays like Easter Sunday, but in reality these are a great time to put together an intervention because of the family gatherings that naturally occur. It’s a tough decision because staging an intervention on a holiday might be viewed as ‘ruining’ the holiday with something unpleasant, but in the long run it’s the health of the subject of the intervention that matters the most and taking advantage of a family gathering to perform an intervention could be the push that’s needed for the addicted loved one to accept the treatment being offered.
Whether done in a family or workplace setting, Family Intervention is a way for the family and friends to confront the one they care for with kindness and respect, but also with direct honesty that will pierce the defenses of the addicted, helping them to see the damage their behavior is doing to themselves and those around them. Because family intervention is done by a group of family and friends, it makes an impact far more powerful than an individual could ever create on his or her own.
Often what makes the subject of an intervention accept treatment depends on the treatment center and what’s being offered. Finding the right treatment center can make all the difference for a patient because certain standard programs may not work. At Seabrook House, patients can take comfort in knowing that we structure individually inspired detox and rehab programs in order to fit the needs of each unique patient. All Seabrook House programs are grounded in the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA).
