Ledgehill is proud to be able offer professional direct intervention services designed to help an addict – usually with the support of family, friends and / or colleagues – commit to seeking professional rehab help for their addiction.
How it works
In consultation with those who know, care about and want to help an addict the trained staff at Ledgehill help choose the best intervention method for the situation.
This could include a confrontational intervention which forces an addict to confront the consequences of their addiction – how it affects others (this type of intervention is usually a surprise to the addict); an invitational intervention where the addict is invited to participate in the process and a collaborative meeting is held; or a hybrid system.
Intervention is usually conducted with family and friends but could also be done in the workplace with colleagues. There is no one size fits all. The goal is always to have the person suffering from the addiction (be it to alcoholism, drug addiction, gambling addiction, sex addiction etc.) leave the intervention with a commitment to attend rehab.
Often, the addict chooses to leave the intervention with the interventionist and head directly to rehab. Sometimes there is a period of detox or supervision until a rehab stay starts. In either case our trained counselor comes to you, helps plan the meeting and attends and leads the discussion. An intervention can be helpful even if the addict refuses to attend or participate.
The type of addiction, circumstances of the addict, age and family situation etc. are all taken into account when planning an intervention. With many years of intervention experience we know the best ways to create a positive outcome from what is initially a difficult and emotionally charged experience. Addiction is difficult. Its affects radiate out to negatively affect many around the addict during addiction but similarly when an addict is finally able to get the help they need to overcome an addiction everyone around them is “healed”.
