Alcohol Rehab: Interventions

Alcoholism has devastating effects on the alcoholic and family members alike. It can be especially difficult to watch someone self-destruct and deny that they have a problem.

Helping loved ones admit they have a problem with alcohol and enter alcohol rehab is not an easy position to be in. You will likely encounter resistance from your loved one who may resort to guilt, manipulation and bargaining and anger to convince you that they don't need alcohol rehab. All too often your best intentions will fall by the wayside unless you have professional assistance.

SouthCoast Recovery has professional guidance available 24/7 and the ability to provide professional intervention services. Our interventionist can help convince your loved one he or she needs alcohol rehab so you don't have to.

When Should You Do An Alcohol Intervention for Alcohol Rehab?

When you know there's a serious problem and have been unable to convince your loved one he or she needs help, it's time to get help. Watching your loved one deteriorate is painful for everyone involved. It's only a matter of time before they do irreparable harm to themselves or others, possibly by climbing behind the wheel while intoxicated. Don't wait until it's too late.

At SouthCoast Recovery, we want to help you and your loved one get into recovery so you can start living the life you were born to live. Alcoholism is a disease, not a matter of will power or moral choice. It is chronic, debilitating and ultimately fatal if left untreated. We offer a comprehensive alcohol rehab treatment program that addresses mind, body and spirit through a combination of clinical therapy, holistic treatments and 12-step involvement.

How does an Alcoholic Intervention work?

The first thing to do is call an alcohol rehab center that has a professional interventionist. SouthCoast Recovery has intake coordinators available on a 24/7 basis to answer any questions that you may have about doing an alcoholic intervention. Generally you will need to determine when, where, and who will attend the intervention. Those who do attend are likely to be friends and family members who've been affected by the alcoholic's behavior and want to voice their care and concern. There also needs to be transportation arrangements in place in order to take the alcoholic into alcohol rehab immediately following the intervention.

You don't need to get too concerned with planning the alcoholic intervention. Our professional interventionist will work out all the arrangements with you. We do recommend having consequences ready to be implemented should the alcoholic refuse to go into alcohol rehab, such as moving out or family separation.

Alcoholic Intervention and Alcohol Rehab

An alcoholic intervention is a precursor to alcohol rehab. Most likely your loved one will be admitted to a treatment facility for a period of time that is long enough to ensure a solid foundation in sobriety. Because of the nature of the disease, it's not always easy to convince a loved one that he or she needs to go to alcohol rehab. If you need an alcoholic intervention by a professional, call us today at SouthCoast Recovery.
