Drug & Alcohol National Intervention Services in the United States

An intervention is a process that does use peer pressure to encourage an addict to admit to his or her problem and then seek out drug and alcohol treatment. During the intervention process, a group of close friends and family will gather together, typically to surprise the addict. During this gathering, each member of the group outlines ways in which they have been harmed by the addict’s addiction and will then plead with the addict to seek out help. If the addict does not seek out help, there will of course be consequences for these or alternatives. Drug and alcohol interventions can be very successful and do help addicts understand the importance of getting treatment. The intervention process is emotionally charged, because family and friends will be specific about how they may have been harmed by the addiction. Commonly, an intervention will be overseen by an interventionist, who may be an addiction's counseling, mental health professional, psychologist, or a professionally trained interventionist. Drug and alcohol interventions do work, but the reason they tend not to work is because the family and friends at the intervention do not follow through with the alternatives. However, an intervention will not affect the outcome of treatment, and once an addict is in treatment; the rest will be up to them to want to make it work. More often than not, all it does take is a little bit of willingness to want to make a change for the better.

When looking for interventionists or an intervention service, it may be difficult to know where to search for this service. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services help line can be a good place to start to access referral services for all types of treatment, and intervention services. The calls are kept confidential, and someone can call as often as they like for help. State and municipal health departments may also have information for intervention groups that may operate out of the state. Typically, an intervention organization may have one office or multiple offices but will often travel all throughout the United States. Local drug and alcohol treatment programs in each state may also work with a specific intervention group or know of one who can help. The best way to be able to get in contact with an intervention group is to start contacting different drug and alcohol treatment programs. It will be important to have a drug rehab center lined up first prior to an intervention, and in most cases, the rehabilitation program will help organize the intervention with the family.
