Intervention

  • What is an Intervention with Carefrontations? It is a rescue mission that creates an opportunity for help and change to all involved.
  • When is the right time to perform an intervention? There is never going to be the perfect time to stage an intervention. To wait until your loved one seems “ready,” can be too late. To wait for them to hit “rock bottom” before getting help is inviting disaster to take place. The idea that a person has to hit rock bottom before getting help is a myth. Many addicts, alcoholics, and eating disordered loved ones simply don’t believe they are worthy of seeking help and might not get the help without your intervention. Don’t wait for them to ask for help, become part of the solution to bring about a change.
  • Be the Hope An intervention is one of the greatest gifts you can give to a loved one who is struggling. It is meant to remind a person how much he or she is cared for and to present the opportunity to get help. You can be a backbone of strength and hope for them when they are running on empty.
  • Who should be at an intervention? The intimate group you invite to participate in your intervention largely influences whether your loved one says yes to treatment. Feelings of love and respect between chosen family members or friends and the person struggling are far more important than direct negative impact or evidence. Who would you invite to their funeral?
  • What is enabling? Enabling is a detrimental roadblock to help and change. No matter how much you care about a person, enabling can only cause unhealthy choices to progress which ultimately causes everything to get worse. Stop enabling by loving your loved one to life with a Carefrontation, and no longer loving them to death by hoping they figure it out on their own.
  • How can Carefrontations help? Carefrontations has been helping families and businesses unlock hope and change since 1988. Having helped thousands to experience successful interventions with over 90% success can be the strategy that you enlist next to get your loved one the help they need.
