A different way to intervene
When a loved one is suffering from a behavioral health issue, such as mental health or substance use disorder, family members can quickly reach the end of their ropes. Multiple attempts to help may have been ineffective, or even made the problem seem worse. A question family members might start to ask themselves is, “Do we need an intervention?”
Interventions are often portrayed as dramatic-traumatic-events where family and friends confront a loved one with blame, threats and ultimatums to get them to change their behavior. Although this more traditional style of intervention may still be warranted in some life-threatening situations, our experience is that these types of interventions often don’t provide the long-term solutions for the individual or the needs of the entire family.
That’s why we’ve redefined intervention to focus on helping heal the entire family system. Many individuals respond better to this more collaborative approach as their voice, choice and dignity are supported in the process.
If you or your loved ones are feeling:
- Like you’ve tried everything
- At your wit’s end
Concerning a loved one’s or your own:
- Mental health
- Substance use
- Other behavioral or relational issues
And in some cases:
- Prior diagnoses, intervention or treatment
- Legal involvement
- Mention of or attempted self-harm
- Violence or threats
- Traumatic events/major life changes
We can help!
These are some of the things we’ll look at when determining the best way to intervene with your family. This does not have to be a dramatic and traumatic experience.
