Alcoholic Interventions

What can friends and family do for an alcoholic? What would make a difference in an alcoholic’s life? What might just make the situation worse? A successful alcoholic intervention can change an alcoholic’s life, but a poorly planned alcohol intervention may not work as well. Speak with the placement counselors at 877-352-6329 to learn more about recognizing the difference between successful and unsuccessful alcoholism interventions.

Poorly Planned Alcohol Interventions

The reason why alcoholic interventions work better than telling an addict they have a problem and need help is because criticism is never well-received. If you don’t go into an alcoholics intervention fully prepared, you’re bound to let your emotions overwhelm you. If you get angry, your loved one could interpret the situation as a confrontation; you want to stage an alcohol abuse intervention that will be a discussion, not a confrontation.

If you need ideas for making sure the confrontation stays out of your alcoholism intervention, look no further than We’d be happy to discuss strategies with you at 877-352-6329.

The Best Type of Alcoholism Intervention

The best type of alcohol interventions involve a small number of people who truly care about the alcoholic. Before you set up the alcohol addiction intervention, meet with this group to discuss what you’re going to say to the alcoholic. Make sure you touch on the following subjects:

  • How dangerous alcoholism can be. Alcoholism leads to serious medical problems, such as seizures and organ failure. Alcoholism can also lead to dangerous behaviors, such as driving drunk.
  • Evidence of alcoholism in your loved one. Chances are, they may deny their problem. Point to symptoms and signs of alcoholism you’ve observed, such as bar hopping and a flushed face.
  • How alcoholism affects everyone. Alcoholism isn’t a one-person problem. Without getting angry, tell your loved one how alcoholism affects you. However, keep the focus on the addict’s recovery and how a healthier, happier addict would make everyone healthier and happier.
  • Treatment options. Some addicts are turned off by certain forms of treatment. Assure them that there are multiple ways to get treated.

When looking for examples of treatment types that you can present to your loved one during the intervention for alcohol abuse, call the placement counselors at 877-352-6329. We stand behind each program we recommend and are completely confident that we can match your loved one with a program that will work with their lifestyle and individual situation.
