A drug and alcohol interventionist is a trained professional that has years of experience in helping families and their loved ones find solutions to addiction.
An interventionist can persuade an addict to say yes to treatment and help families establish boundaries that will help everyone involved start on the road to healing.
An interventionist’s roles are many, but the main objective is to break down the walls of denial your loved one has put up around their addiction. Interventionists know that admitting they truly have a problem is the first step on the journey of recovery.
Work Together With an Interventionist to Save Your Loved One
If you are committed, an interventionist will get the ball rolling immediately and begin working with you to plan an intervention to save your loved one’s life. The interventionist will do all the heavy lifting in the process of staging the intervention and finding an effective treatment center to match the needs of your loved one.
The role of the interventionist is to help facilitate the intervention, ensuring that communication is controlled in a healthy manner. An interventionist also keeps the distractions to a minimum. The message that an interventionist must ensure is conveyed is the love that your family has for the addicted individual and the concern of how urgent the need if for treatment.
