Step 1: "What Treatment
Method Will you Use?"

Arrow Head

First, what is the desired product of the alcohol or drug intervention? This means, if the addict agrees that he or she has a problem and wants help, you need to know what that help is. It is very advisable that the people doing the intervention agree on what program or method will be best for the addict, once he or she has agreed to receive help. There are thousands of programs and many philosophies or approaches to treatment and generally the addict needs help in identifying one that is right for hom or her. The program that is chosen will determine if the addict relapses after treatment, causing much greater complexity and further risk as well as continued pain and struggle for those aroundhim or her.

My husband and I sent him through many programs, each time thinking this would do it. We thought that programs were all the same and one was just as good as another. We found out that this is not true. We wondered if this would ever be over.

Once the intervention team has decided on the treatment they intend to propose to the addict, they should contact the facility of their choice. They will need to determine admittance procedure; financial obligation as well as specific questions that remain about what treatment the addict will receive. Remember were talking literally about the addicts life and general quality of that life so dont hesitate to be inquisitive. If the prospective treatment center doesnt adequately answer all pertinent questions or they are elusive as to the expected outcome of treatment, the family may want to consider a second opinion. Addicts live and die by their ability to recover, so this is not a decision to be made lightly.
