When addiction has ravaged a family, members are often both desperate yet afraid to take action. On one hand there is an overwhelming fear that the current path will lead to death. Yet families often have at least one member concerned that intervention will make a bad situation worse. As a leader in intervention services in Indiana and beyond, Heartland Intervention is often asked, “Does intervention work?”.
Focus on a Known Solution
Before calling us, most families have spent lots of money, time, tears and energy trying to make things better. Sadly, those efforts are often focused on what the addict or family member thinks will help. Despite these efforts, addiction continues to erode relationships, health, finances, freedom and more. While often perceived as a dramatic step, an intervention is designed to pierce the hallmarks of anger, denial and dishonesty and get the alcoholic or addict to engage in treatment. Intervention focuses time, effort, energy and money on a known clinical solution.
Three years ago, Beth’s parents decided on intervention in an effort to save her life. At the actual intervention, Beth was angry. She lashed out and threatened not to speak to her family ever again. She did however agree to go to treatment from the intervention which was well crafted by Heartland Intervention, LLC. She completed 31 days of inpatient addiction treatment and completed an aftercare group in her supported living community. Beth called our office last week to tell us that she has been clean and sober for three years. She is working full-time and is hoping to get married later this year.
