Sending a Family Member to Treatment

When a family member is addicted, getting them help is always a top priority. It’s never easy to watch as a loved one deteriorates and loses control of their life. Sending a family member to treatment can also be difficult.

Those who become addicted to substances are often in denial about their problem and unwilling to get help. They may also be unaware that they’re addicted. What’s clear to a loved one watching addiction take its toll, can be completely oblivious to the person addicted.

Sending A Family Member To Treatment - Intervention - Help Them Help Themselves


An intervention is a commonly used method of interrupting a family members addiction and offering them treatment. Typically, family members and close acquaintances come together in hopes that their loved one will accept help for their addiction.

It’s a good idea to involve a professional when staging an intervention, who can act as a mediator if conflict arises. Interventions can be stressful and emotional experiences, however without treatment, the chances of them quitting drugs or alcohol successfully is extremely low. Even if unsuccessful, an intervention can let a person know that help is available when they’re ready.

Plan to Act Quickly

If a person accepts treatment during an intervention, they should be taken to a facility immediately. A medical detox is usually the first stop. During detox they’ll receive around the clock medical monitoring as well medications and therapy to begin their recovery.

From there, a quality inpatient treatment facility is the best option for those who have a serious addiction. Continuing treatment is one of the most beneficial things a person can do for their recovery. Intensive outpatient programs and aftercare keep recovery at the forefront of the mind, while readjusting to day to day life.
