New Hope Recovery Center - Interventions

Understanding Intervention Services

Interventions explained
There is some misconception about intervention services. Interventions are often portrayed in the media as highly conflictual meetings in which friends and family members air out their grievances towards one person. Certainly, interventions are confrontational, and they usually involve close family members. With a trained interventionist, however, an intervention session will be well run and contained.

An intervention is generally defined as an attempt to disrupt a person’s pattern of negative and addictive behaviors. Some individuals are unable to see how the disease of addiction has affected their lives and the lives of those around them. While some friends and family may have expressed anger, worry and frustration, their message does not get through. Addiction is so powerful and insidious because it causes the mind to rationalize compulsive and destructive behaviors to maintain the addiction. A trained interventionist can break through an individual’s false sense of reality. The objectivity that a professional interventionist brings to the intervention dissipates some of the intensity of the emotions that surface, preventing blaming, shaming and other defeating communication.

Only a trained clinician can assess whether an intervention would be appropriate for your friend or loved one.

  1. Hello,
    I believe in the intervention process. I have published a book for women and men on addictions. "Quiet Desperation" can be perhaps used as a tool for the still suffering. A serious book on hitting bottom ,rehabs, detox and A.A Please look for it on either Barnes and Nobles or Publish America.com. I can send you more information through mail. Getting sober takes more than a story I realize, yet, perhaps others could see beyond. For I was once in there shoes. Thank you Felicia Ford

  2. agree that moving past drugs and alcohol addiction is a arduous task. I liked a lot of your blog posts and found them informative as well as uplifting. Instead of simply lamenting, the openness of your posts seem to be sort of inspirational.

    For your readers I wanted to share CareFlorida's rehab center information. CareFlorida is a holistically based addiction recovery center located in North Palm Beach Florida. CareFlorda offers patients a unique guarantee- if relapse happens in the first six months after graduating their program, patients are welcomed back into the program and given a weeks’ worth of treatment for free.

    I hope this holiday season we can help someone become healthy again. Thanks for all the posts your have done and I look forward to helping patients at www.careflorida.com

    Happy & Healthy Holidays!
