An intervention is the process in which a trained professional (interventionist) approaches a person struggling with addiction to encourage them to commit to seek help for their substance use.

This is one of the first steps in initiating change.

Who Needs a Drug Intervention?

Many people struggling with drug addiction cannot see the problem of their addiction clearly.

When this happens, family members or loved ones may decide that enough is enough and attempt to get their loved one into treatment. This is considered an informal intervention. Sometimes informal interventions work, and other times they do not as family, friends, and coworkers cannot get through to the addict or get them into treatment. These are the people who may need a formal intervention.

The help of a trained interventionist can help the addict make the decision to seek help for their substance use problem. Nuhope Service offers several types of drug intervention services to help get your loved one the help they need.


Types of Drug Interventions

Family Intervention

A family intervention centers around not only helping a loved one agree to treatment; it includes the family and their need for healing during the process of recovery.  Family members are hurt, angry, and confused from living in the substance use environment and need help in starting the recovery process. In family interventions the primary focus is still on the loved one suffering from alcohol or drug abuse but includes the family and their role in healing as a family unit.

Adolescent Intervention

An adolescent drug intervention is an intervention involving a person under the age of 18 who is abusing drugs or alcohol. Adolescents suffering from drug or alcohol abuse often change significantly. Common signs in this age group include problems in school, distancing themselves, failing grades, absence from school, lying, or noticing that money is missing from the home.  An adolescent intervention helps parents and loved ones intervene and get help for an adolescent they cannot seem to reach on their own. A trained professional can help get the adolescent into a program for recovery and support.

Executive Intervention

An executive drug intervention is usually performed on an employee that is exhibiting signs of alcohol or drug abuse. Employers and coworkers are some of the individuals involved in an executive intervention.  This type of intervention can be a cost-effective way to help a valuable member of the company who has been struggling with substance abuse and needs help to see the benefits of formal treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions About Drug Interventions

Before an intervention takes place, the interventionist will meet with the family to talk about their loved one and what has been occurring in the home environment, work environment, legally, and personally. The interventionist will work with the family to help educate them on addiction, what type of intervention will take place, and what the next step will be.

You and your interventionist will spend time together before the intervention. The family usually is an active part of the intervention, but these kinds of decisions are made between the family and the therapist. After the intervention the interventionist will still have some contact with the family. An important thing to remember is that the family needs help as well. Living in the chaos of addiction takes it toll on the entire family.

After an intervention, your loved one may not choose to seek help.  The important point is that you took charge and tried to help. An aspect that most families don’t realize, is that the family must get healthy and stop enabling the addict. Enabling, allows an addict to continue using without consequences.  When the family stops enabling, this often motivates an addict to see help.

At Nuhope, our interventionist work closely with the family, before during and after the intervention. We continue to support the family regardless of if the addict chooses treatment or not. We help the family heal and learn more about how they can continue to make healthy changes and allow their loved one to be accountable.
