Dealing with an addict by yourself is exhausting and does not solve the problems that led to the addiction. You cannot love someone out of an addiction. You must seek help from professionals who know how to treat an addictive personality. Care Recovery Services has those professionals.

We not only work to get treatment for the addict, we work diligently to give families the treatment and support they need. This is especially important for those family members who have been enabling the addict. The interventionists at Care Recovery Services have the expertise and experience to help addicts and their families create new and healthy family dynamics. An intervention must be carefully planned out and the interventionist will help you every step of the way. The interventionist will find the perfect treatment program for your addicted loved one.

The intervention will end the patterns of denial held by the addict and surrounding love ones. The ultimate goal of the intervention is to convince the addict to accept treatment and help the family create healthy relationship boundaries with the addict. These boundaries will bring peace to everyone involved and make sure you know what to do if the addict relapses. It is crucial for the addict to know that if she falls, you are not picking her up. You do not help an addict by blocking her from rock bottom.

During the intervention the interventionist will make sure that communication is exchanged healthily and that no one loses sight of the ultimate goal. In a successful intervention the addict will realize her family loves her, is worried about her and that it is time to clean up her act. If the addict tries to manipulate the process, the interventionist will see it immediately and teach the family how to deal with the addict’s manipulative ways. Our interventionists have truly seen and heard it all. There will also be no blaming and shaming during the intervention. Addiction is a disease that is truly no one’s fault.

The interventions of Care Recovery Services are a 2 day process. The first day involves preparing for the intervention and educating the family about how addictions and interventions work. The second day is the actual intervention.

Going into the intervention you have to face the possibility that the addict will turn down going to treatment. Many times the addict is simply not ready to seek treatment and only the addict can decide if and when she is ready for treatment. If the addict says no to treatment, take comfort in the fact that you tried to help. There is always a chance that the addict will change her mind after the intervention. If the addict says no, it is crucial to stick to the boundaries you established during the intervention if your loved one keeps using.

Forcing someone to get treatment rarely works and can cause further damage. A well planned intervention with a professional interventionist is the best way to get an addict’s attention about treatment. When you are ready for our help, call 1-877-245-2384. We are available to talk 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
