Anytime someone needs help but refuses to accept it, a family intervention is appropriate, which can be done in a respectful and non-confrontational manner.
Do you need intervention help? Does someone you love need help, but are not willing to go through with getting the intervention help they need on their own? Staging an intervention is the most loving thing family and friends can do. Anytime someone needs help but refuses to accept it, a family intervention is appropriate. It can be done with love and respect, and in a non-confrontational, non-judgmental manner. A family intervention help can be used for people engaged in any self-destructive behavior, such as:
- Alcohol Abuse and Addiction
- Drug Abuse and Addiction
- Eating Disorders
- Gambling Addictions
- Sex Addictions
- Computer and/or Internet Addictions
- A Senior Needing Assisted Living
Because each family situation is different, the scope and approach to each intervention help must vary accordingly. What may be practical and appropriate for one family may not be for another. For example, some family interventions require several weeks of preparation, others can be done in a few hours or days. Some have a designated “intervention day” on which a formal intervention occurs, others not. Some family intervention help have a professional leader present, others not. Often a family intervention occurs in the person’s home, others in the leader’s office. Some are a surprise, others are not. Sometimes a great deal of family education takes place before the intervention, in others it takes place afterward.
