We want to help people in Corpus Cristi stage interventions
Few want to help men and women in the Corpus Christi TX 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?
Interventions are counseling techniques that inspire a drug or alcohol abuser to consider getting help at a rehab or addiction treatment facility. Typically, an intervention contains the addict, friends and family of the addict, and an interventionist. Typically, people start an intervention because the addict is unresponsive to pleas, unwilling to participate in rehab, or is in total denial of their addiction. It is up to members of the family, friends, and the interventionist of whether or not the addict has prior knowledge of an intervention. An intervention is a tool that gets an addict from a mentality of denial or unwillingness to a place where they’re agreeing to get treatment. It sounds direct and simple, but our treatment center knows from past experience that intervention is just a first step.
During an intervention, an addict’s friends and family try to convince the addict to enter into a rehabilitation treatment facility (rehab), in order that they may be able to receive treatment and overcome addiction. Once the addict enters a treatment program, that is the place the recovery procedure begins. An intervention is not treatment. Treatment is where the addict learns about the illness of addiction and is taught the techniques and skills to maintain long term sobriety through controlling their addiction and behaviors. With the resources and knowledge that they possess, our staff can assist in starting up an intervention for a friend or family member. It’s only natural to feel hesitant about confronting a loved one, and chances are you’ll question whether or not an intervention is the absolute best option, or if it is the best time. There’s no rationalization for delaying if you’re concerned for your friend’s good being and well-being. Waiting too long for an intervention could result in worsening well-being, hospitalization, or even death, our treatment center recommends starting up an intervention once you start to suspect the problem.

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.
Explore Treatment Options
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.
