Anytime someone needs help but refuses to accept it, intervention is appropriate.
Intervention can be used for people engaged in any self-destructive behavior:
• A person drinking too much
• An anorexic
• A gambler
• A computer addict
• A senior needing assistance
Intervention is the most loving, powerful and successful method for helping people accept help.
Intervention can be done with love and respect in a non-judgmental manner.
Intervention is often the answer, the only answer. It can be done. It can be done now.
How Intervention Works
Family and friends may initially feel apprehensive and confused. They may be ambivalent about whether or not to do an intervention. Some may be afraid of the person, others may be angry. The goal is to move from this disorganized state to a cohesive, focused group.
Intervention begins with an initial meeting of family/friends with a professional Interventionist to discuss in detail the history of the individual and his/her problems. The Interventionist will provide step-by-step worksheets to guide everyone through the planning and preparation phase. Education about the dysfunction will help to determine the best and most appropriate options to take as well as others who should be involved. Further meetings include problem-solving, decision-making and preparing what individuals are actually going to say.
This preparation often involves several meetings and/or telephone calls, and culminates in a practice session immediately prior to the intervention itself.
