The Launch Pad Interventionists
Often, taking the first step into recovery is the hardest part. Surrendering to personal powerlessness over addiction and seeking a new way of life outside of drugs and alcohol is not the addict's natural way of thinking. It's not uncommon for families and friends of addicts to seek an intervention as a way of addressing how they are hurting themselves and the people around them. This step, however, requires professional guidance and assistance. The Launch Pad interventionist team can help families and groups reach out to addicts in an effective and constructive manner that will increase the likelihood of their acceptance of surrender.
Interventions are Effective
An intervention requires proper planning. Our intervention coordinators have the expertise to guide you through all the initial steps for a successful intervention. Over 90% of individuals faced with an intervention agree to enter treatment. In addition to the high success rate of interventions, The Launch Pad provides a perfect opportunity for individuals to discover the personalized recovery plan they need to start their new way of life, clean and sober. Utilizing an interventionist from The Launch Pad also allows for a seamless transition into their recovery program and gives greater insight into the individual's needs, allowing us to better personalize their clinical and traditional recovery program.
When to Try an Intervention
You feel like you've tried everything, and regardless of what you do or what they do to themselves, you're just not reaching them. You've heard empty promises and claims that this will be the last time, but rarely do those times of fleeting sobriety last very long. An intervention is intended to deliver extra impact, something more than the cries for help and pleas to stop. Here are some examples of Interventions that your loved one may have already experienced in his or her life:
- Legal intervention - such as arrests, jails, probation or parole
- Medical intervention - such as overdoses, heart attacks, or strokes
- Psychiatric intervention - when the substance abuser becomes suicidal or a danger to himself or others and is forced into an institution
- Family intervention - such as spouses who leave or kids who disown their alcoholic/addict parent
- Financial intervention - such as loss of a job or when there is no money left to continue
When these fail, there is still hope for recovery. Interventionists can help the addict discover that a path to recovery does exist. Ultimately, it's up to the individual to accept their surrender and be willing to take the first step in recovery for themselves.
