Drug and Alcohol Treatment options in Amesbury can vary from residential, outpatient, short term and various other options. Speaking with a drug and alcohol counselor who knows the differences in recovery programs can be an useful resource in choosing the best rehab.
There are several intervention models that families in Amesbury may choose to use. The most effective among these are the Johnson Intervention Model, the Family Invitational Model, and the Systemic Intervention Model.
This is the model that most people imagine when they think about an intervention. This model involves confronting the addict when they are not expecting it, as well as telling them how their actions and behavior have been affecting both themselves and everyone in the presentation.
The intervention members will then go on to request that the addict accept rehab from a program already chosen by the family - going so far as to reiterate that they will provide their support throughout the process. If the addict refuses to go to rehab, the team will set ultimatums, usually referred to as guidelines, outlining the consequences the individual will suffer if they refuse treatment.
This real threat of consequences might be what makes the Johnson Model the most effective of all the intervention strategies. However, some people might feel that this method involves too much confrontation, and may rather go with another method.
This is another intervention model you may choose to consider. The primary concept is that it does not make use of the surprise element of the previously discussed Johnson model. Rather, the addict will know what is going to take place when they are invited to the pre-arranged meeting.
The addict will also be given the freedom to decide whether or not they will participate in the intervention meeting, as well as engage and respond to the issues and the proposed solutions raised at the intervention.
In this model, the family and loved ones will meet up with a professional therapist - with the addict present. The therapist will supervise and direct the discussions towards healing and finding realistic solutions to the problem - which may or may not involve the addict checking into a substance abuse rehabilitation center.
