We want to help people in Corpus Christi stage interventions
Few want to help men and women in the Corpus Christi area overcome addiction to drugs and alcohol. Staging an intervention is one of the best options to get an addict into rehab (rehabilitation treatment programs). You are more than likely concerned about somebody in your life, someone who is in your family, that is considerably and frighteningly changed as a result of a drug or alcohol addiction. Watching an addict endure and combat is an agonizing process, particularly if you’re a family member. You might be asking, “How can I assist my family member get better?” and “What’s my part in helping my family member get help for this habit?” Friends and family members care deeply for the person who is affected by dependency, but it may wear them right down to have to say ‘no’ all of the time. It’s irritating to feel utilized by the addict and having to watch on as people encourage the addict with codependent behavior. You can’t be frightened of confrontation: worry can’t stop you from taking action.
What is an Intervention?
An intervention is a counseling approach that appeals to a drug or alcohol abuser to participate in a rehab treatment program. It is a carefully planned event that enables family members help an addicted loved one to start their recovery process. The purpose of an intervention is to help substance abusers acknowledge that they have a problem, that they need help, and that there is help available. Interventions include the addict, their family and friends, and is guided through an interventionist.
During an intervention, an addict’s family and friends attempt to persuade the addict to enter into a rehabilitation treatment program (rehab), so that they may be able to receive treatment and fight addiction. The treatment facility is where the recovery process begins. An intervention isn’t treatment. For suggestions or assistance to plan an intervention for a loved one in the Corpus Christi area, contact us at 916-249-2665.
Finding an interventionist
The one that guides and directs the intervention is known as the interventionist. We strongly encourage family members and friends to utilize a certified, skilled interventionist in the event that they plan on hosting an intervention for their friend or loved one. Without an interventionist, interventions run the chance of backfiring, typically because friends and members of the family are too close to the situation to remain objective. Usually, an interventionist will require that friends and family members write a letter to or make notes to be read out loud to the addict. These letters might include pleas to seek rehab, emotional appeals, and even ultimatums regarding rehab and sobriety.
Interventionists have a deep understanding of the illness and are able to effectively communicate with both friends and family members, and the abuser. Typically, she or he is an addict in recovery and is in a position to convey an outside element to the discussion. An interventionist uses the right language for both the addict and the addict’s family and friends and can communicate intelligently with and among each party. We recommend skilled, certified interventionists who are registered with the Association of Intervention Specialists and have references to talk with. To speak with somebody about interventions, or for help finding an interventionist, call us at 916-249-2665.

Outpatient treatment is part-time, usually between 10 to 12 hours a week, meaning that the recovering user comes to the facility, but they do not stay in the facility. These programs usually run between three months to one year. Ultimately, outpatient treatment is right for those who have more mild addictions.
Inpatient treatment means the person stays at a facility for a period of time - usually between three weeks and six months. While staying at the facility, they undergo intensive treatment. Inpatient treatment has a higher success rate than outpatient treatment, but it is also more expensive. Further, inpatient treatment interrupts daily life. Ultimately, inpatient treatment is especially effective for those who have undergone serious addictions.
Residential treatment means that patients live in a residence with other patients. Treatment staff transport the patients to the treatment center each day. In this way, they experience the benefits of both inpatient and outpatient treatment. Residential treatment is best for those who want to keep their treatment and living areas separate, but they still want to separate themselves from their toxic environments.
