There are circumstances where families and loved ones of addicts need additional support to coax them into seeking addiction treatment. This is especially true when an addict is in the denial phase of addiction, unwilling to recognize they have a substance abuse problem and need help. In other circumstances an addict may realize they need help, but they are wary about entering an addiction treatment facility out of fear of being outside of their comfort zone. They may need the extra encouragement from a professional on the life changing benefits of addiction treatment away from home.
Certified National Drug and Alcohol InterventionistOften an addict’s comfort zone consists of the people, places and things that they associate with their addiction. By leaving this environment for a drug rehab facility, they are often able to recover faster with less of a risk for relapse. They find that after a week or so of being in treatment and abstinent, they feel better and are open to the therapeutic processes that lay the foundation for long-term abstinence and recovery. However, getting addicts from their comfort zone to this place of acceptance and willingness takes skill. That is why we recommend seeking the services of a trained and experienced interventionist for those who may feel unwilling or unable to enter treatment. While family members and loved ones can help addicts open up to the idea of treatment, an interventionist is often the key to making the conversation a reality. This is especially true of our preferred interventionist, Bobby Nicholl, Certified National Drug and Alcohol Interventionist and Registered Addiction Specialist.
