It can be hard to seek treatment for addiction to drugs and alcohol, especially if that help is for a loved one. We understand how hard it can be, and this is why we work with trained intervention specialists, like Dr. Gregory Klein. Dr. Klein is our resident interventionist, and he has studied intervention strategies for over 10 years.
Many people addicted to drugs and alcohols don’t think they have a problem. There is a common misconception that everything is “okay” as long as you haven’t completely hit bottom. Waiting this long to get help or admit there is a problem that proves to be deadly in many cases.
We can help you determine if your loved one is a good candidate for intervention if you give us a call. Before you call, there are some common signs you can look at for yourself that will help you determine if your loved one is struggling with addition.
We have open enrollment and encourage new members whenever they need. Members sometimes start in IOP and feel they need full care for a week a month.
While this option is expensive, we try to work with insurance companies to help you afford care. Our trained staff will be able to answer any questions you have about our inpatient treatment.
These symptoms might be signs of addiction:
- Getting fired from work
- Odd behavior
- Frequently sick with flu
- Slurring of speech
- Finding drug paraphernalia around
- Red eyes
- Dilated Pupils
- Problems with money
- Seems depressed or unlike usual self
If you recognize these signs in your loved one, we can help you. We will make this process easy for you and rewarding. We want your loved one back.
It’s crucial that you and your loved one realize that seeking treatment for addiction does not mean you are weak. It’s the opposite. It takes a lot to admit you need help and want to better your self. Many addicts also face co-occurring disorders such as anxiety or depression, which makes accessing treatments difficult.
This is why we offer interventions. We take the accountability of the individual and come together to acknowledge there is a solvable problem before, and that what we are dealing with is a deadly disease. There is no blame or shame in our intervention process.
We want to help prevent problems as soon as we can. Our process for interventions is very straightforward and can be detailed to your needs.
The Intensive Outpatient Treatment option is perfect for addicts that are still working or have children. It is not always possible to attend inpatient treatment. We assure you though that you get the same quality as an inpatient.
The process begins in a welcoming and open environment. We usually have at least one interventionist and the client present. If you are wondering who is welcome in the intervention situation, we allow most types of relationships. The only people we recommend not attend are ones that might trigger the individual seeking help. This is best to be a time of low stress.
We also welcome:
- Work buddies
- Romantic partners
- Church leaders
Outcomes of Intervention
The ultimate goal of the interventions we provide is to help your loved one see the truth. It can be hard when someone has been perpetually stuck in his or her destructive habits. Through gentle and non-confrontational language we can foster a space where the addict can look at their situation from a new light.
