Some substance abusers may be ready for help, but they might be afraid of quitting because of the painful withdrawal symptoms. An intervention can reassure them of the process of rehab, and that it includes a medically managed detoxification, which helps them with those painful withdrawals.
When staging an intervention, it is best to invite participants who are influential to the substance abuser. They should all be people who the addict will listen to, and who's opinion matters to the person struggling with the disease of addiction.
If possible, hire an interventionist to lead your intervention. Interventionists are addiction specialists who are experienced at leading successful interventions. They will work with the participants in advance to rehearse and prepare for the intervention. If you can't find an interventionist near you, a friend or family member can facilitate the intervention.
