Frequently Asked Questions

What is an intervention?
An intervention is confronting an individual with their self-destructive behaviors such as drug and alcohol use through the help of loved ones and an intervention specialist. The goal of the interventionist is to lead the client from admission of a problem to appropriate treatment.

How do I initiate an intervention?
In order to initiate an intervention, all it takes is one phone call to an eDrug Rehab. A certified specialist will have the knowledge and experience necessary to make you and your family feel at ease with the process. The process will include contacting potential participants, usually friends and family and educating them on their role in the process. Transportation and other details are arranged by the intervention specialist and his or her team. By making the phone call, the initial consultation can begin and hope can be restored. For more information, see Intervention MD, a group that specializes in interventions.

Who facilitates an intervention?
An intervention specialist or expert facilitates the intervention process. The specialist will work with the family from initial phone call to recovery planning and will follow up after treatment is completed.

Will family and friends be involved?
The involvement of friends and family will differ from situation to situation, however often times it is suggested that close family members and friends are involved to help the individual break out of denial. With the help of an intervention specialist, friends and family members are able to discuss feelings and fears of the individual's addiction openly and honestly. Many times discussions between the individual and loved ones have not taken place, so the intervention opens up new, stronger lines of communication.

Will my loved one have to go to treatment?
Before the intervention takes place family members and the intervention specialist will discuss possible outcomes. In addition the family will let the specialist know their specific desires. There are many different treatment options and the specialist works with the family to determine the most effective.

Will the intervention be successful?
eDrug Rehab has a success rate of 95%. Interventions facilitated by eDrug Rehab are extremely successful because our highly trained intervention specialists have specialized intervention skills and always remember that each family and each individual is different and has different needs.

Where will the drug intervention take place?
Interventions are often held at the home of the loved one where they can feel the safest. If not at the home, the meeting can take place at a friend's house or even a neutral location. The most important thing is the location should not be a distraction from the primary issue at hand which is recovery from substance abuse.

What if my employee, co-worker or boss needs an intervention?
eDrug Rehab is a workplace intervention specialist. There is an increasing trend for employers to look after the interests of valuable employees whose work may be impacted by drug or alcohol abuse. Since individuals spend so much time at work it is natural for serious personal issues to become obvious in the workplace. More and more, companies and leaders recognize that it is far cheaper to take a proactive approach toward the well-being of their employees rather than watch work suffer and try to find a replacement.

What sort of planning do I have to do for an intervention?
eDrug Rehab will coordinate all details with the family and find the best solution for a successful intervention. Some families like to make the arrangements with the loved ones they'd like to have in attendance at the intervention while others ask eDrug Rehab's coordinators and assessors to handle the preparations.

If you have a loved one with the problem we encourage you to give us a call today so that we can help ease your troubles and those of your loved ones. Reaching out for help is always more effective when done earlier rather than later.
