closeWhat To Expect
Seeking addiction treatment can feel overwhelming. We know the struggle, which is why we're uniquely qualified to help.
Your call is confidential, and there's no pressure to commit to treatment until you're ready. As a voluntary facility, we're here to help you heal -- on your terms. Our sole focus is getting you back to the healthy, sober life you deserve, and we are ready and waiting to answer your questions or concerns.
Is it possible to make someone you love enroll in a drug rehab program if it’s clear to everyone that it is necessary but he still doesn’t want to go? The short answer is “no.” In most states, unless your loved one is a demonstrable potential harm to himself or others, you won’t be able to convince a court of law that your loved one should be enrolled in treatment against his will.
But can you convince your family member that drug rehab is the best choice for him? Can you create firm boundaries that may encourage him to choose treatment rather than continue living in addiction? The answer to those questions is a resounding “yes.” You can – and should – set boundaries and offer treatment as the only way forward for your loved one. The best way to do that? Staging an intervention.
If you’ve asked nicely – and not so nicely – that your addicted family member stop hurting himself and enroll in a treatment program that will help him overcome addiction and he has repeatedly refused, then staging an intervention should be your last-ditch effort to help him agree to begin the healing process.
The first step is to prepare. Because it is not an impromptu meeting, it is important to gather together everyone who will take part and hold a planning meeting. Here, everyone can get on the same page, determine where and when to hold the intervention, and figure out what they’re going to say and in what order.
The goal of an intervention is for your loved one to accept the offer of treatment and leave right away. The best way to ensure that there is a spot for your addicted loved one on that day should he agree to accept help is to enroll him in a treatment program that is right for his needs prior to the intervention.
