A Better Today has every bit of faith that you can do this intervention, but we need to tell you this; not all interventions end with them willingly going to rehab. You need to know that many substances corrupt the part of the brain that deals with pleasure and rewards.
To a person caught up in their addiction, they do not see rehab as pleasurable and may try to avoid it at all cost. No intervention is a failed intervention. Do not blame yourself for them refusing to go to substance abuse treatment. A lot of unexpected things can happen during an intervention. They may leave the room, cry, scream or become violent.
They may blame everyone but themselves and storm off to go abuse drugs or alcohol as a way to cope with what they heard everyone say. Do not lose faith, if anything, visit an al-anon or nar-anon meeting to get more guidance and support for when you will try again.
Al-anon and nar-anon are fellowship support groups that focus on the family of the loved one who is abusing drugs or alcohol. They can give you advice and help you with your loved one. Don’t lose hope, get help. If you need help convincing your loved one to seek treatment, A Better Today will try our best to help you in whatever you need. Saving lives and healing families; it is what we do.
