and alcohol interventionist.
A drug and alcohol interventionist is a trained professional that has years of experience in helping families and their addicted loved ones find solutions to addiction.
Getting your loved one to say, "yes" to treatment is always their goal as well as helping families create important boundaries that will help everyone involved start on the road to healing.
An interventionist's role is to help stage an intervention that breaks down the walls of denial to convince your loved one that she or he is in desperate need of help and that now is the time to accept the help that is being offered.
How does an interventionist do their job?
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 and that no one is distracted from the end goal. 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 is for him or her to go to treatment.
