About Family Interventions at Seabrook
Is your loved one in denial about having an addiction? Or does he/she minimize the negative affects of his/her dependency? These are both major symptoms of alcoholism, chemical dependency, and other compulsive disorders like gambling. For many, the first step then to getting help is a sensitive, guided confrontation (sometimes called a “carefrontation”) directed at the affected person. This is also called a family intervention and is an orchestrated effort designed to influence a person’s decision to seek treatment.
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 and direct honesty. This will help pierce any defensiveness from the addicted loved one and also help him/her see the damage caused by his/her behavior. Because family intervention is done by a group of family and friends, it’s impact is far more powerful than an individual could ever create on his or her own.
Family Intervention Goals
Family, friends, employers, professional colleagues, coworkers, in short, anyone who cares enough, can initiate the family intervention process. There are various models of family intervention that each require a certain amount of preparation time, but in most cases, family intervention results in immediate entry into detox, alcohol rehab, drug rehab or other appropriate treatment setting. When carefully designed and coached, family intervention can:
- Create positive change
- Sweep away the secrecy
- Minimize the denial inherent in addiction
- Begin the move toward recovery
