Addiction Intervention Services
Guiding families through the intervention process is the keystone of South Florida Intervention's services. Intervening on a family member, friend or co-worker can take several non-confrontational forms. These are and should be a genuine act of love and kindness. Too many families are afraid to intervene on someone suffering from the disease of addiction, because they’re afraid of how the addict will respond to being challenged over their illness.
We encourage families to think about intervention as doing what is medically necessary. Loved ones should feel the urgency and necessity of treatment, just as they would if their child or parent were refusing treatment for diabetes or cancer. Some do not "believe" addiction is a disease, and therefore dismiss this comparison. However, the scientific facts are that addiction is acute, persistent and fatal if not treated.
A recovery coach can help bridge the gap between leaving rehab and returning home. Re-entry into a patient's former responsibilities, such as school, work, relationships, and parenting can be a stressful shift from the safe confines of a rehab center to once again managing one's own life.
Our recovery coaching intervenes and coaches your newly sober family member upon their return from rehab. We help those in recovery become re-established through daily discussions on the phone, video conferencing, and in-person meetings. Having this accountability is an important step towards achieving long-term recovery.
These meetings help families unify individual goals and plan for a successful intervention. They may also be used to reinforce healthy boundaries at any point during the treatment process or convey an important message to the addicted individual, such as the necessity of attending 12-step meetings.
Choosing the best rehab center before an intervention can be overwhelming and confusing. South Florida Intervention will educate you of the various treatment options and make suggestions based on your situation, family and the addict's unique circumstances.
Managing travel arrangements including airline tickets, ground transportation, and overnight accommodations when required.
Escort to Rehab
Getting an individual to treatment can an incredibly difficult task. Most often, it is best that a third-party intervene and participate in the intervention and transport and guide the addict to rehabilitation and through the recovery process. Our trained professionals will escort your family member to their rehab program quickly and safely without any additional stress.
Post-rehab consultations may continue indefinitely following a successful treatment program. Every day of recovery is a fight and challenge against battling your former addiction(s). Our post-treatment services are available for both family members and recovering individuals to avoid relapse.
Food and Sugar Addiction
An estimated over 70 million Americans struggle with food and sugar addiction. Scientific research shows the psychological effects of eating foods with high fat or sugary concentrations causes a chemical reaction similar to drinking alcohol or using drugs. A person who can not stop eating, or has difficulty stopping, may be suffering from the life-threatening disease of food addiction.
Having an employee with a drug or alcohol addiction may cause economic damage and destroy your firm’s credibility quickly. Firing this employee after years of productive service simply doesn't make economical sense. Instead of making a costly and risky investment of rehiring, investing into the career of the addict is often the best solution. South Florida Intervention can help you identify the right treatment solution and help restore this person to being a valuable member of your team.
