Very often, the only thing standing in the way of a cry for help and a total comeback is the loving involvement of family and friends. We offer immediate and proactive drug intervention to help victims of drug abuse and their families deal with this urgent and time-sensitive matter. The signs of drug abuse and addiction are often more immediate than those of alcohol.
The more one abuses drugs, the more they bargain and rationalize with themselves and their loved ones to justify their actions. If this is allowed to continue, it will be next to impossible to get them to accept treatment and abstain from further drug use. Our drug intervention services start the continuum of care at Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches and lay the groundwork for a patient’s recovery and the restoration of their mental health.
A successful drug intervention can prevent both long and short-term drug-related problems such as:
- Contraction of infectious diseases
- Long-term degenerative health problems
The Strength, Courage and Experience to Help
Intervention is an emotionally charged process. Many times, they’re difficult to even complete because of hurt feelings, hostility, and judgment. Our intervention specialists at Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches assist clients in selecting the right people to have at the intervention based on an analysis of each family's dynamic. The interventionist is an integral part of the process and can be instrumental in the resolution of conflicts. We work to establish trust and understanding with clients and their addicted loved ones. The goal of each drug intervention is to get your loved one to accept that they need to go for professional treatment to get better.
Most of all, interventionists are trained to help family distinguish between love and enabling. Together with family and friends, they explore any possible interaction that may have exacerbated drug use and come up with a long-term plan of familial support that is built on honesty, not criticism. Once treatment is accepted, the interventionist will quickly help to place the patient in a program and even provide transportation services to one of our facilities.
They Won’t Get Better on Their Own
