Asking for help and seeking treatment is one of the most challenging first steps individuals take in their lifetime. For family members and friends who are considering intervention as an option, we are here to help — and experienced at doing so.
Gemma Recovery Group utilizes the Johnson Model of intervention. We offer a concerted and highly-focused team effort to confront your loved one with honest facts and provide a set of short-term and long-term goals, and a structured plan for achieving them. We approach interventions with a high degree of experience and respect for the gravity of the situation — and we promise we’ll bring no shame, guilt, or blame to the situation.
Interventions are typically called into action after several failed attempts by the family to stop the addict or alcoholic’s behavior, or after numerous attempts at treatment have failed. For both the client and the family, the situation can feel hopeless, frustrating, infuriating and, often, heartbreaking. When someone you love struggles with the addiction beast, it affects everyone around them.
The important point to remember is that the addict is not the enemy, the disease is. Our team commits to thorough background work and preparation before the intervention takes place, in order to achieve the kindest and most successful result possible. We encourage a concerted team effort and honest communication to successfully begin the process of intervention on a loved one.
