How to help an alcoholic or drug addict enter recovery
Families considering an intervention may feel emotionally drained, hopeless, or overwhelmed. Compassionate intervention specialists can help this highly emotional and stressful experience go more smoothly. A successful intervention can encourage an alcoholic or drug addict to commit to recovery.
The experienced therapists at the MindSol Wellness Center in Sarasota have developed a process for families who need to intervene in a person’s substance abuse to try to save his life.
Each intervention participant will meet with a counselor to discuss their concerns. Meanwhile, MindSol staff will locate a qualified rehab center, determine insurance eligibility, and set up treatment.
On the day of the intervention, two certified professionals will accompany the family and facilitate the discussion.
Upon conclusion of the intervention, MindSol staff will transport the client to the treatment center. Counselors can provide ongoing support for family members as needed.
MindSol also partners with Sarasota Addiction Specialists‘ Intensive Outpatient Program. When clients leave rehab, they can benefit from enrolling in an IOP to ease the transition to sober life.
