If you think that someone you love is struggling with addiction, it’s essential that you try to get them help. And although it can be tough to come to terms with the fact that someone you love is struggling with addiction, it can save their life. You may even resort to denial and just look the other way when you see the warning signs. There’s also a chance that you have no idea how to get your loved one the help that they need, which is common. One of the best ways to motivate your loved one to begin the road to recovery is through an intervention like one we’ve discussed here.

Most importantly for you or your loved one, working with a professional interventionist helps take the edge off of confronting an addicted individual. Not only will you have an expert to guide you through the process of planning the event and coordinating an addiction treatment center, but you will also have a moderator to make sure the event itself goes smoothly, supporting loved ones as well. Sometimes simply having that neutral person in the room is all you need to find common ground and save a life before it’s too late.
Once you hire an interventionist, he or she will be able to advise you in the best practices for making the event go smoothly. Your interventionist may tell you about the optimal times and places to hold the event based on you and the individual’s needs. In general, it is best to hold the drug/alcohol intervention early in the day or at a time when the addict is less likely to be drunk or high. Holding the event at a neutral, familiar location is also recommend. But remember, interventions are about the individual, so each situation differs as does every person.
