Crisis interventions are often a
last resort when a person continually engages in self-destructive
behavior, and crisis interventions can be lifesaving
tools by which a person can find a healthy way of living.
Many people live their lives dealing with painful issues
or emotional disorders, and because they are feel they
are unable to cope, they turn to drugs and alcohol to
escape their feelings. Although their intention is not
to become addicted to the substances that is usually
the result, and a crisis intervention may be the only
way to get through to them.
A person in need of a crisis intervention
may be threatening suicide or may be involved in dangerous
and criminal behavior of which he/she would never do
without the aid of drugs or alcohol. In some cases addicts
lose hope in life, while in others daily responsibilities
begin to falter as the addiction worsens.
Prescription Drug Intervention
interventions begin when a loved one, friend or
family, picks up the phone and asks for help. If the
addict is willing to seek treatment, a crisis intervention
can be unnecessary, however if he/she is becoming sicker
but does not think a prescription drug intervention
is needed, then a crisis intervention is key. Once the
call for help has been made, the loved ones know that
they are not alone in the struggle against addiction
and begin to gain hope that recovery can happen. Many
times the individual will be in denial and resistant
to help, so it may be important that he/she does not
find out about the crisis intervention until it occurs.
Prescription drug interventions are also done when an
individual is abusing drugs like vicodin,
xanax, and oxycontin.
Some prescription drug addicts will require a detox
before they are able to go through drug treatment.
Behavior Intervention Plan
Crisis interventions have extremely
high success rates because intervention specialists
are professionally trained and can often relate their
own experiences to the experiences of the addicts they
help. The actual crisis intervention will involve the
family members, the intervention specialist and the
addicted individual. The specialist will explain the
behavior intervention plan and what is happening and
the family members will be able to discuss their feelings
and concerns with the addict. If the crisis intervention
is successful the addict will agree to leave with the
specialist and enter a suitable treatment facility.
Crisis interventions can be trying
experiences, but at National Rehabs, our specialists
make sure that the behavior intervention plan is as
stress-free as possible for everyone involved. If someone
you love has a problem with substance abuse and is unable
to admit it, seeking a crisis intervention from National
Rehabs may be the only hope. Please do not hesitate
