Types of Intervention
At Magnolia Ranch, we have trained representatives available 24 hours a day who are well versed in speaking to anyone considering entering addiction rehab and are still unsure if it is right for them. They have not only been through the process but can also pinpoint specific programs that would help the struggling addict with their problems. You can reach one of our interventionists at 888-992-7955.
Many times, a phone call is not enough. Magnolia Ranch also works with a team of interventionists around the country who can perform a physical intervention This is a much more aggressive, but effective approach. This approach is typically non-confrontational, but allows a much greater likelihood that the person will accept treatment as the interventionist shares his or her experience and explains what the program offers.
In most cases, a person struggling with addiction will need some professional help in getting them to agree and understand their need for treatment, especially since a major symptom of the disease of addiction is denial.
For those who are struggling with speaking to their loved one about their problem, or if an intervention from a trusted source is necessary, Magnolia Ranch Recovery has access to a network of interventionists available for any need.
In many cases, an intervention can prove successful, and if not immediately, can at least plant a seed so the struggling addict is aware of the options available.
Why Intervention Works
It has been proven that an outside perspective and outside advice is often far more effective than the loved ones of an addict desperately trying to convince them to openly receive professional help. Addicts will frequently claim, “You don’t understand” – which, in most cases, is true. It is easier for one currently in the grips of an all-consuming chemical addiction to relate to someone who has been in their shoes, someone who they have no personal relationship to and no tumultuous past with. A 3rd party interventionist is often instrumental in convincing one who is refusing treatment and refusing to acknowledge that they have a problem – that they may truly be in dire need of help.
