Very often an individual who struggles with addiction hits a low point, through an incident or accident related to their substance abuse. When a situation like this occurs friends and family might find it necessary to plan an intervention. However, an intervention requires a careful and strategic approach. Here are three tips to help assure a successful outcome. For more information, contact our drug rehab centers in NJ today.

Be Strategic with Who Attends

A variety of relationships can cause a tense environment when conducting an intervention. Interventions are most effective when only the closest and most trusted friends and family are present.

Get Advice Before Hand

Before you conduct an intervention, it’s always a good idea to get guidance from an addiction counselor or professional with experience in conducting such interventions. A professional will be able to guide you through the structure of an intervention and set you up for success.

Plan Your Communication in Advanced

It’s best to be prepared, and know what you are going to say ahead of time. Prepare examples of the behavior which is destructive and harmful and emphasize that you are doing this because you love them and care about their well-being.
