The loving involvement of family and friends is very often the only way to reach out to a victim of drug. We offer immediate and proactive drug interventions to help victims of drug abuse and their families deal with this urgent and time-sensitive matter.
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
An intervention is an emotionally charged process. Many times, they’re difficult to even complete because of hurt feelings, hostility, and judgment. Our intervention specialists (interventionists) 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 professional treatment in order to get better.
Most of all, interventionists are trained to help a family distinguish between love and enabling addictive behavior. Together with family and friends, they explore any possible interaction that may have exacerbated drug use for the victim 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
The sooner you start the intervention process, the sooner your loved one can get the help they need and revert back to the loving, caring, energetic individual you used to know.
