Understanding The Best Treatment ProgramThis is a very important part of the intervention planning process. Picking the best treatment option for your loved one and presenting it to them in a way that shows you carefully selected it makes all the difference. According to Narcanon, “Every year, millions of people enter drug rehabs in the US alone. While rehab helps many of them, the majority of them had been to rehab before and then relapsed after they went home. In fact, one in ten had been to rehab five or more times before.” For this reason, when sorting through treatment program options it is important to ask some questions while determining which one will be best.
- Would inpatient or outpatient work best for the addict based on schedules, flexibility, work ,and location?
- What type of accommodations would best suit your loved one?
- What is the budget?
- What type of therapy and counseling is offered at the facility?
- Is the facility religious or spiritually based and will that be suitable for your loved one? Would it be best to have a program that is not based on a higher power?
- What is the length of treatment?
- What is the structure for treatment?
Questions To Ask During An InterventionThe most important question to ask during an intervention is: Will you get help? However, as members of the family and friends speak and read their letters, it may be helpful to ask questions that can lead the addict to their own realizations about their behavior. Asking things like:
- Do you remember a certain situation where you were high or drunk?
- When was the last day you did not drink or use?
- How do you think that might make me feel?
- Do you feel you are in a good place in life?
- Do you know how much money I have loaned to you? (With prepared numbers).
- Are you aware of your behavior when you __________? And is that really how you want to be?
- Do you know how much I love you and why I want you to get help?
