Could your loved one be entangled in an addiction brought on by substance abuse, mental health issues, an eating disorder, or emotional struggles of some kind? Is an intervention the next step to consider for your family member in order to save their life? 

Families living in the beautiful landscape of Washington may find it hard to believe people struggling with battles related to addiction when you have the sights of Mount Rainier, Olympic National Park, and the Seattle skyline to look at. 

However, the waves of meth, opiates (especially in Spokane), and heroin have caused more drug overdose deaths in Washington over the last ten to fifteen years while alcohol abuse accounts for 3,184 deaths each year. 

Before your loved one becomes one of these unfortunate statistics, make the call or reach out online today to to see how we can help you and your loved one start the path toward recovery.

Intervention in Washington: How does it work?

There can be many questions you might have when considering the steps toward an intervention for your loved one. It can be hard to determine what approach, who to join with, and how an intervention could be most effective. 

An intervention is usually a united meeting of family members and friends of an addicted person, guided by an interventionist, to encourage the person to see their harmful addiction is causing him/herself and others harm and needs to stop. The goal is that the intervention leads to the addicted person’s decision to enter rehab and begin the journey to long-term recovery.

When you contact us, you are immediately connected to one of our qualified intervention specialists to discuss the situation regarding your loved one and learn what intervention services in Washington we have to offer. There is more than one option to choose from, each with the mindset of giving respect, love, and hope to all those involved.

One intervention option includes a workshop that your loved one and family members and friends can participate in, led by our interventionist, to give everyone the opportunity to share their feelings about their loved one’s addiction. Another, more recognized intervention option is where family and friends come to confront an addicted person, in a respectful and loving manner, about their addiction, assisted by our interventionist.

Whatever choice you make for the intervention of your loved one, know that we are there to support and guide you through this challenging but meaningful ordeal.

The time to consider intervention services in Washington is when there are noticeable changes in your loved one’s behavior, appearance, and overall control of their habit. Some tell-tale signs are strong indicators that there is an issue with your loved one and help might be in order.

  • Judgment changes, sometimes going into drastic judgment calls.
  • Isolation from everyone, even family and friends.
  • Unpredictable and even violent mood swings.
