Interventions are professionally directed, education processes resulting in a face to face meeting of family members, friends and/or employer with the person suffering from substance use disorder. People who struggle with substance use disorder are often in denial about their situation and unwilling to seek treatment. They may not recognize the negative effects their behavior has on themselves and others. Interventions can help the person make the connection between their substance use disorder and the problems in their life. The goal of intervention is to present the afflicted individual with a structured opportunity to accept help and to make changes before things get even worse.
The Genesis House counselors can help you organize an effective intervention. We will take into account the particular circumstances surrounding the substance use disorder, suggest the best approach, and provide guidance for what type of treatment and follow-up plan is likely to work best.
