Are you losing a loved one to alcohol, drugs or mental health issues?
Do you feel like you are fighting a losing battle, trying to get your loved one to commit to treatment or professional help? Is your family fighting over the “right thing to do” with conflicting ideas? Are you confused by terms like enabling or codependency? We are here to help you get your loved one back.
Our professional interventionists educate families & confront addictions, helping your family begin the healing process. From a position of compassion, we help families confront the disease of addiction & offer support through the healing process for their struggling loved ones.
There are some things we see over and over again as interventionists. Typically, the family has tried every imaginable way to convince their loved to change. We know that this approach doesn’t work because their person has highly developed manipulative tactics to deflect any confrontation that could threaten their current path (active addiction). We also know that the family is too emotionally attached due to their love and can rarely remain grounded without someone objective and unattached to help formulate and implement the plan.
We’ve all heard “addiction is a family disease,” but what does that really mean to the family members who surround the person struggling? In short, it means the person struggling has created a system around the family and trained the members connected in how to treat him/her in order maintain the current path of self destructive behaviors. These tactics can include instilling fear, threats, shutting down, explosively reacting, and other manipulative actions.
Having an interventionist help you is the first step you need to take to go forward with a positive, compassionate approach that works to get your loved one to agree to become vested in treatment, recovery & long-term sobriety.
