If you have a friend or family member with an addiction problem, then an intervention is likely necessary. However, it is not the wisest choice to perform an intervention without any prior research or experience. That is why our professional intervention specialists can give you the needed guidance and preparations for your meeting. Here are just a few things that you can expect from working with a Recovery Care intervention specialist.
Medical and psychological assessment is needed for interventions. The environment needs to feel calm yet taken seriously. It is a tricky situation, but with an intervention specialist, you will have the foresight to know what will calm the person, while not accidentally putting any stress on them as well. The best-case scenario is to have the person agree to go into recovery right there after the intervention is over with.
The intervention specialist also will be able to recommend the best type of recovery treatment. Our process involves hearing about the person first (including the nature of their particular addiction). How they act in regards to addiction and their personal lifestyle has a big impact on how they react to the idea of recovery. Some people are open to recovery, while others are unsure or even fully against the idea. From there we can recommend which treatment program will best suit their needs. The strength of the addiction greatly indicates which kind of treatment is right for them. With the interventionist’s expertise and your personal understanding of the person, the person will not have to be afraid of being misunderstood at the recovery center.
The job for you as a friend/family member is to give them support and take away any worries that they may have. This might be anything from telling them not to worry about finances or what is going to happen to their career while they are in rehab. Most importantly, the intervention specialist is here to teach you how to receive the person with care while also pointing them to the prosperity that comes with recovery.

When it comes to the road to recovery, there can be many roadblocks or moments of despair. These moments can be tough and hard to overcome. It might seem like recovery is just a pipe dream and that our body and mind is forever attached to our addiction. But no matter if you are haunted by heroin or alcohol, it is seriously possible for the addiction to be defeated. With the guidance of our recovery care management, a sober companion, and/or sober escort, it is important to carry a few reminders to help stay focused on your end goal.
Mistakes are not in vein
Often one of the things that we dread while in recovery is the appearance of a relapse, emotional/anxiety attack, or any other kind of bad circumstance. We feel as though that we should not have done whatever it is we did in order to actually move forward. But a horse ride isn’t over when you fall off the horse. It is over when you give up and decide not to get back up on it. Support from your sober companion and recovery care management will certainly be here to accept and encourage you despite any mistakes and struggles.
Recovery takes time
As implied earlier, this is a journey involving roadblocks and learning. Recovery is not a speedy process. We are essentially reworking our lifestyle and mental inclinations to live healthier away from the traps of the addictive substances. To do that, we must have take steps ahead in their proper time, and allow the body and mind to move away from the addiction.
Asking for Help is good
Sometimes we can find ourselves believing that we are advancing if we have to ask for help. Yes, there comes times where we will have to find the strength in ourselves, but if we need help then we need help. There is no shame in that. It is the help that we receive that allows us to find the strength to handle any future struggles.
One of the biggest pieces of inspiration we receive in recovery is from those who know your struggle.
