An intervention is a concerted effort, usually a meeting, designed to help someone you know seek help for their addiction disorder. An intervention is not a strong armed tactic but a caring and carefully orchestrated process to gain the individual's agreement to seek help. Interventions have helped family, friends or employees recognize the nature of their addiction, its consequences and also offer a plan of action.
At EDGEWOOD Vancouver Addiction Services we can co-ordinate the intervention or refer you to an interventionist. The first step is to meet with our counselling staff in a free consult to plot a course of action.
We can also help with
- treatment facility selection,
- referral arrangements, and
- expedited placement into treatment
- Suggestions for helping the family cope with how the addiction is effecting their own well-being
Building on the strengths and resilience of individuals, families and communities who are taking responsibility for sustained recovery from alcohol and drug addiction.
