When an individual is unwilling or unable to come to grips with the reality that alcohol and/or drugs are impairing them, loved ones, family advisors or caring individuals often seek professionals to facilitate a conversation about the addicted individual receiving help. The Palms at Good Samaritan Medical Center staff can guide the individual, family advisor or group seeking the intervention services to professional, confidential resources and interventionists. The Palms provides a discreet medical detox allowing the individual and interventionist a confidential, concierge environment to begin recovery from addiction.
Interventions often include the following:
Deciding on an appropriate model. (Invitational, confronting, medical, legal, etc.)
Choosing what type of interventionist and style will be beneficial in the success of the intervention.
A fact-finding meeting to determine what is happening in the addicted individual’s life, and then a collaboration of ideas as to how they can be approached in a respectful and caring manner to encourage them to get the help they need.
Identifying the course of care (residential, outpatient, sober coach, therapist, etc.)
- How the person will receive care and from whom.
