Providing You with the Support and Guidance You Need
Family and friends of alcoholics and addicts often feel overwhelmed emotionally. Feelings of confusion, anger, and frustration can lead to a sense of utter hopelessness. Glenbeigh is here to make the process of getting help easier and restore hope to friends and family.
We also offer Intervention services to “raise the bottom” for the chemically independent person — before a tragic incident makes them realize the depth of their addiction.
There are Ten General Principles that Influence the Decision to Intervene and that Guide the Intervention Process:
- Your behavior is causing significant damage in your life.
- Denial is preventing you from fully appreciating the damage the addiction is doing to you and your life.
- You're unlikely to seek help on your own.
- The people involved with you can change the environment by changing the enabling system — making it more likely that you will seek help.
- The sense of genuine concern and understanding conveyed by the interventionist is one of the most important factors in influencing you to seek help.
- Anger and punitive measures have no place in interventions, because they increase your defenses, making it less likely you'll seek help.
- The consequences for not going into treatment should not be designed to punish but rather to protect your health and well being.
- You require an initial period of intensive treatment such as a 28-day residential program or an intensive outpatient program to address your denial.
- The intervention may be useful even if you aren't likely to go to treatment.
- The intervention isn't a confrontation. Rather, it is a well-organized expression of genuine concern for you, given a chronic and serious addiction problem.
