An intervention may be suitable when someone you love is falling deeper into an addiction. They may refuse to accept help and your concerns are often met with irritation or anger. They deny that there is a problem, or try to reassure you that they will do something soon but refuse to act. It is painful and frustrating to have tried to support someone who is obviously in trouble and to not be able to make a difference. In our experience, a carefully planned, professional intervention can help.
When you see a loved one trapped in addiction and they seem to deny it is happening, or simply will not accept help, a professional intervention will help to break the denial and give the person using a clear view of their situation, how it is harming them as well as their family. To simply present the facts around the behaviour of your loved one would be of no use unless made with an offer of help and in a loving way.
A skilled interventionist will guide family members in delivering a view of what they see happening to their loved one, how it makes them feel, and importantly, offer the help they need. You may have tried threats, rewards, loving concern and a host of ways to reach them, yet still they continue using and there seems no way to convince them to accept the help you would like to offer them. At this point you might want to consider an Intervention
We often hear desperate family members tell us that they were told that they have to wait until the addict is ready. We disagree and have found that a professional intervention, carried out by a skilled interventionist; can be the kind of loving support that convinces them to accept help now, saving the addict and family years of suffering. Interventions are usually following one of two established models, or where appropriate, a combination of both. The Arise and the Johnson models have different approaches but are similar in that they confront the behaviour of the addict and in that the family joins together to show unity and their desire to help.

What previous clients have said
John was an amazing help. Kind, understanding, and professional. He supported me from start to finish and continued after with a kind tone, and the perfect words for those looking for help. I would recommend his services to anyone. Due to the sober transportation he provided I was able to make the long journey home.

I first contacted Treatment link confused and completely unaware of my options. My family was breaking down and I was about to lose my job. John guided me through the whole process, arranged admission to detox and transportation. After leaving the treatment centre I was supported by Treatment link and have found a healthier, happier me!
