Drug And Alcohol Intervention

Many times, when a substance abuser refuses to see the reality of their substance abuse, a drug and alcohol intervention is the only option left to save their life. This is a sad, but true fact of life. You may be in the same position as many other addicts (substance abusers) are in. You may be so consumed by your drug an alcohol addiction that you cannot see a way to help your self or are refusing to admit you have a problem. If this is the case, your family is probably planning a drug and alcohol intervention at this very moment. If and when you go through a drug and alcohol intervention, it is crucial that you remember that it is an act of love not an act of hate. This intervention could be your first step on the road to recovery.

If you or a loved one is struggling with a substance addiction, please do not hesitate to call us, Cliffside Malibu, at (424) 320-3061.

Understanding the Intervention Process

When you are first faced with a drug and alcohol intervention, meaning when you are in the midst of it, you may not fully comprehend the process or reasoning behind it. In fact, you might only agree to attend a treatment center because all of your loved ones are begging you too, but your heart may not be in it at that very moment. This is normal, because in the height of your drug and alcohol addiction, your brain and body are not functioning properly. Even if you were sober at the time of you drug and alcohol intervention, your body and mind were probably screaming for your substances of choice. This is why it may be beneficial for you and your loved ones to discuss later, in the family counseling you will attend (at least at Cliffside Malibu you will), what went on during the drug and alcohol intervention.

Successful Intervention

Throughout the process of your drug and alcohol intervention, which, by the way, is when your family and friends gather together in one place for the mere purpose of forcing you to see your self destructive patterns and help you to realize you need professional help, there is always one end goal. This end goal of a successful intervention is that you are willing to accept help and enter into a residential treatment center that focuses on drug and alcohol addictions. Your drug and alcohol intervention, if successful, will lead to you getting the help you need and deserve.

At Cliffside Malibu we want nothing more than to see you become a productive member of society again. Following your drug and alcohol intervention, you will be ushered into an exclusive setting, meaning we limit the number of guests we have so that we can focus on each of you individually, where you will receive an assessment so that we may create, together, an individualized treatment plan for you.

What to Expect After Intervention

As any drug and alcohol abuser would feel, you may be feeling fear of the unknown that usually follows your drug and alcohol intervention. Even if you have asked questions about the treatment center you are to attend, you still may be apprehensive about what will happen and what you will feel. The best way to overcome a lot of your apprehension concerning what happens after your drug and alcohol intervention is to ask as many questions as possible or, if you have a night or so before you have to enroll, you might even do a little research by your self.

While each treatment center is unique, if you were to attend a luxury rehab center like Cliffside Malibu, you can be assured that your recovery will be as painless as possible.
