Learn About Professional Interventions for Alcohol in Florida
If your loved one is trapped in alcohol addiction and is spiraling into a damaging cycle of denial, loved ones often find themselves emotional and unsure about what to do and where to turn. An alcohol intervention can be one way for you to promote a path to recovery or at least spark the goal of sobriety in your loved one’s mind.
At the Alcohol Rehab, we have an interventionist on staff 24/7. Because our staff is made up of recovered alcoholics, we have experienced what your family is going through and can provide sympathetic, expert support. If you have decided your family member needs an immediate alcoholic intervention, we realize it can be your loved one’s starting point for entering inpatient alcohol rehab, instead of returning to the habits and behaviors that were damaging him and your family. We’ll do everything in our power to give you the exact support and guidance your family needs during the intervention process. After the intervention, we can arrange and pay for your flight to alcohol rehab.
How Does an Intervention for Alcoholics Work?
Your loved one’s recovery cannot afford a delay, and even in your most desperate moments, our staff is ready with knowledgeable intervention care. If you’re considering an alcohol rehab intervention, it’s important to review the intervention process and get your loved one the care they need as soon as possible.
Observe your loved one’s behaviors. Pay attention to all of their self-destructive habits, as well as the habits that are taking a bigger toll on the entire family. You should even take notice of simple, small patterns, and create a list to share with the interventionist beforehand. This will help create a basis for your loved one’s personalized intervention.
Absorb the information given by the interventionist. Once you have discussed your loved one’s alcohol addiction with the interventionist, he or she will educate you on the process and what to expect. You’ll also help coordinate the details and plan an ideal time it will take place – it’s important to hold an intervention when your loved one is sober.
Confront your loved one. When it’s time for the intervention, you and your family must confront the alcoholic by calmly explaining your pain and the ways you have been personally affected by their addiction. This may be a difficult, emotional meeting, and it will be easy for your loved one to feel attacked. Be honest and straightforward, but avoid throwing violent insults; the end goal is for your loved one to acknowledge their destructive addiction.
Listen as your loved one acknowledges addiction. Ideally, your loved one will realize his alcoholism and destructive lifestyle has hurt others, and it is no longer something he can control. Your interventionist is also trained to learn, acknowledge and address the specific needs of each person involved in the intervention.
Help your loved one plan their recovery. Once your loved one admits to their addictive lifestyle, you and the interventionist can help outline a recovery plan. The interventionist will work with your family to formulate cohesive goals, and when the intervention ends, your loved one will enter inpatient alcohol rehab immediately to begin their journey to recovery.
