OOviedo, Florida is a city that covers about 16 square miles, located in eastern Seminole County. The population is roughly 35,000 and is a mix of ethnicities and races. Oviedo, like many areas of Florida, has residents who suffer from alcohol and drug dependency.
Many drug and alcohol addicts refuse to seek treatment on their own. They may feel they don’t have a problem, or they may not be ready to quit. If you know someone in this situation, consider staging and intervention for them. Many successful recovering addicts attribute the intervention as the main reason they sought help, and they credit it for their sobriety today.
Also recommend to them the possibility of traveling for treatment. When they travel to another city or state, they get away from all the stresses and harsh environments that led them to abuse alcohol and drugs in the first place.
Many people confuse intervention for rehab, treatment or recovery. It is none of these. Intervention is an initial step to help people go to therapy. It literally is people—friends, family and loved ones, intervening on behalf of their addicted loved one, to get them to admit themselves into a treatment center.
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.
