Cocaine Intervention Help

When families of cocaine abuse victims have had no success with getting their loved ones to admit they have a problem the best course of action is to arrange for a professional cocaine intervention.  A cocaine intervention performed by a licensed interventionist will illustrate to your loved one the damage that their cocaine addiction has inflicted on both themselves and everyone close to them. The purpose of cocaine intervention is to compel cocaine abuse victims to enter treatment and free themselves from their dependency. The process has been enormously effective not just in cocaine addiction cases, but those of all other drugs, as well as alcohol. Cocaine intervention is a tried and true method of confronting substance abuse and bringing someone you love back from the brink of total self-destruction.

Organizing a Cocaine Intervention

The stakeholders in cocaine intervention include victims’ families and loved ones: parents, spouses, significant others, siblings, good friends, etc.; a licensed professional interventionist who will organize and guide the flow of the proceedings; and often a respected member of the community such as clergy, local government, etc. Addicts are meant to be unwitting stakeholders in their own cocaine intervention, as an overwhelming majority of them, if not all, would resist going on their own. The element of surprise is crucial to get the addict to the designated meeting site, so that they arrive with no problems. With the help of the interventionist, cocaine intervention participants develop some sort of false pretense to get the addict there. Once they arrive, the true purpose of the meeting is revealed to them by the interventionist.

The Cocaine Intervention Process

If the patient decides to participate in the cocaine intervention, as many of them do, those assembled will usually each read a prepared statement describing how the addict’s actions have affected them personally. This stage of the intervention can be incredibly emotional, and is best managed by an objective and relatively detached interventionist. Once everyone has said their peace and made their cases, the addict is given the option of accepting treatment that has been prearranged or risk losing everyone in the room for good. This is an ultimatum at which loved ones should never arrive lightly, but once they make it they should stick to it. When the addict makes their decision, the cocaine intervention is over.

The Dangers of a Poorly Managed Cocaine Intervention

Addicts who become aware that a cocaine intervention is being organized are likely to feel threatened and not show up. This is why discretion, planning and professional management is of the utmost importance during this process. Once the addict has reached the meeting site, it’s important that the intervention be guided by an emotionally objective professional who has experience in these matters. Without this objective voice, the cocaine intervention could easily become an emotionally charged attack on the choices and behavior of the addict, which will likely discourage them from accepting treatment. Subjects of an intervention will always feel blindsided when they first discover what’s happening, however, it’s up to their loved ones and the interventionist to steer the meeting in the direction of support, not judgment.
