“I must be cruel only to be kind” – William Shakespeare, from Hamlet
Setting the addict on the road to recovery.
Many addicts, whether they use alcohol, drugs, food, gambling or whatever, are often in denial about how their addiction affects their family. An intervention process is designed to help break the denial the addict may have around his/her addiction and also deliver an ultimatum around the addict seeking help.
An intervention will, after careful preparation and planning, put the addict, their family and a professional interventionist together. The family will confront the addict with how they have hurt other people. This process is often very powerful for both the family and the addict and helps the addict to see their addiction clearly.
I work with a professional interventionist to help all those affected to understand that addiction can affect the entire family unit.
The purpose of the family intervention is twofold:
- Help the addicted family member see that his or her actions have affected a large group of people, and help that family member to decide to seek treatment and find long-term recovery.
- Help the members of the family to understand the parts they have played in their own discomfort, and to provide tools for the affected family members to begin healing themselves and to help them participate in the healing process for their entire family.
