How often has your loved one claimed they’ll get sober but hasn’t tried to change? Often, those struggling with addiction either don’t believe they have a problem or are incapable of getting help on their own.
Trying to convince a loved one about their substance use disorder can fall on deaf ears and cause them to refuse treatment. The good news is that there is help available.
While long-term recovery treatment is the end goal, professional addiction interventionists are a great first-step option to help your loved one start their road to recovery.
That’s why we work closely with trusted and experienced interventionists to bridge the gap between overcoming addiction through acceptance and effective therapies.

An addiction intervention is like a bridge. As the name suggests, it’s a way for a supportive group of people to intervene to help a person struggling with addiction make the connection between drug use and all their life problems.
While the addiction may seem evident to you and everybody else, your loved one may not recognize the adverse effects drugs or alcohol has on their life — and on the lives of their family and friends.
The good news is that interventions usually work. In fact, we highly recommend them because they’re the perfect first step in getting individuals the treatment they need to heal from addiction for good.
According to the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, over 90% of people commit to getting help after a professionally led intervention.
It is imperative to have a plan before the intervention takes place. Each intervention member should prepare, in advance, what they want to say.
Issues to address include
Knowing that an intervention is not the place to show anger or employ shame or guilt as tactics are essential. Instead, the goal is to help your loved one realize the effects drugs or alcohol have had on their lives and aid them in understanding that they can live a full and rewarding life of sobriety.
When we team up with out-of-office experienced intervention specialists, they will work with you to organize an intervention for your loved one. To help persuade them toward treatment before their addiction gets worse, an interventionist:
A good interventionist is not going to leave any details to chance. Therefore, you should expect your interventionist to meet with you and other concerned parties at least once before the intervention. At that meeting, you’ll learn how the process will go and be coached on the best way to get through to your loved one.
The interventionist will handle any stressful or emotional moments that may arise if your loved one becomes defensive or unpredictable.
By the end of the intervention, the interventionist will recommend the appropriate treatment at The Raleigh House, in conjunction with our team, and know how to respond if your loved one refuses help.
