Admission Intervention Services
The Support Of Family And Friends Can Make The Difference
Addiction can be life-threatening. It can also, with the least amount of damage, ruin the life of the addicted individual and everyone in their circle of influence. Sometimes, families are at a loss of how to intervene to help their loved one find help. This is where we can help. Our professional interventionists can assume the role of “middle man” between patients, family members, and friends. They are able to approach the situation in a non-judgmental manner. The patient does not feel like they’re being attacked in the process.
Quite often, addicted individuals are reluctant to admit there is an addiction problem. This can prolong the problems they face, and it can continue to make life challenging for others. While no one can force patients to enter rehab, intervention can help set them on the road to recovery.
The Right Time to Intervene
Substance abuse can have devastating effects on a person’s entire life. The problem is that many with mental health conditions and addiction challenges are oftentimes slow to admit there is a problem. Intervention may be the only thing that motivates and provides an avenue for them to seek help. Often, family members and friends will come together in an attempt to get help for the addicted person. However, it does not always work because broken relationships and emotions can be involved. It can also be a problem for family members or friends to confront an addicted person. This is when the help of outside assistance is highly appreciated.
What Does an Interventionist Do?
Simply put, they have the skills and training to bring the afflicted person to a level of understanding that clinical help is needed. Interventionists have the tools and knowledge to help prepare the afflicted one for the intervention process. They can skillfully mediate needed conversations between family members, friends, and the addicted individual. They are able to approach the situation in a non-judgmental manner. Thus, their expertise brings the addicted person to a point where they can address their substance abuse, mental health, and co-occurring conditions in a rational manner.
The longer intervention is delayed, the longer an individual will have to deal with their addiction. At Sprout Health California Detox, a patient’s success and long-term recovery is our main priority. Every program and treatment that we offer is geared toward this end.
Our interventionist will meet with family members and friends who are present during a session. Different scenarios can be acted and addressed during sessions. A calm and productive environment is maintained. This way, problems and challenges are worked out and solved in a productive environment and manner.
Once a patient has agreed to enroll in treatment, the admissions process starts. We collect valuable information about their health background, mental wellness, insurance, and drug use which helps us develop an individualized treatment plan. Once patients go through detox, removing all harmful chemicals from their body, we offer cognitive therapies whereby patients learn the connection between thoughts and actions. They also learn to approach problems differently to create a more positive outcome.
Whether our treatments are for inpatient or outpatient, we take special care in making sure the needs are met for all of our patients. Inpatient therapy is intense, and seeks to detox an individual to prepare them for complete sobriety. They are removed from harmful trigger elements that may cause relapse. We can offer individual, family, and group counseling. Everyone involved gains a better understanding of addiction, its causes, and what families and individuals can do to assist the afflicted individual.
We Help Patients to Find Meaning in Life
First, a patient has to want to get better. We applaud their taking the first step to enter treatment for their addiction. While detox and treatment address mental and physical disorders, that patient will still face the world when their treatment programs end. As such, we offer follow-up services that will encourage our clients to connect and interact with groups like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. Sharing with others who understand a similar experience can be mightily therapeutic.
