Intervention has been widely used in popular culture. It has laid the foundation for reality television in an effort to assist distressed individuals, specifically if they are plagued by one or more concerning health or personal issues. However, these television shows often fail to address the true range of what a proper intervention entails.

It is not representative of the actual work that accompanies an intervention and ends up romanticizing the whole rationale behind it without dealing with the issue. As a result, people's attitudes toward action are adversely affected.

A structured strategy must be put in place for an intervention to be effective for someone who needs it. It is something that mental health rehabilitation and intervention therapy centers and are further supplemented by recovery service providers, such as Transcend Recovery Community.

What Is An Intervention?

The World Health Organization describes intervention as an act performed by, for, or on behalf of an individual or community with the aim of assessing, improving, maintaining, promoting, or modifying health, working, or health conditions.

It can be carried out by a wide variety of health care providers. It can be categorized into various categories based on their purpose and existence, such as diagnostic, medical, surgical, mental health, primary care, allied health, working assistance, rehabilitation, conventional medicine, and public health.

It can consist of a combination of programs and interventions aimed at changing behavior or improving health status in individuals or populations. Interventions can include:

  • Environmental enhancements.
  • A public health program.
  • Educational programs.
  • New or more robust policies.

Interventions are typically the most successful at achieving desired and long-term improvement.

It can be used in various environments and communities, including the workplace, classrooms, healthcare institutions, faith-based organizations, and homes.

Intervention may not be enough to resolve all mental health problems, such as process addiction or drug abuse. However, it is regarded as an essential mechanism for change because:

  • It affects individuals' awareness, behaviors, values, and skills;
  • It enhances social support;
  • And lastly, it develops positive cultures, policies, and resources.

What Are The Types Of Intervention?

Concerned family members may refer to four popular types of intervention when dealing with their loved one suffering from a mental illness or addiction. These types of intervention include:

Simple Intervention

Rather than assembling a large crowd to approach your loved one, sometimes what it takes is a single-family member confronting the addicted person and telling them to stop using drugs and initiate a formal addiction recovery program to bring about change. This one-on-one intervention, with or without the assistance of a professional interventionist, can be very effective.

Classical Intervention

A classical intervention involves the addicted person from the beginning. This intervention also involves counseling and education for all family members and is referred to as a Johnson-model approach. Before action, members of the family are allowed to discuss their position. A psychologist or interventionist is ready to deal with all the various outcomes. The family members of the addict will also benefit from this kind of intervention.

Family System Intervention

The intervention is focused on “family systems'' and care. When many people struggle with addiction or codependency, this strategy will help treat all of those issues. The whole family gets involved in family therapy and coaching; nobody is excluded. The addicted person receives the treatment they need, and their health improves as a result.

About Crisis Intervention

Sometimes after a crisis, everybody realizes that rehab is a must. When someone becomes a liability not just to themselves but also to others due to their mental health crisis, an impromptu intervention is much more favorable than a planned-out one. The primary goal is to help stabilize the situation and prioritize safety. Most often, strict enforcement and discipline are necessary for these scenarios for recovery to soon follow.

Crisis intervention is a short-term management strategy used to minimize the long-term effects of a person's crisis. A crisis is described as a life-altering occurrence such as divorce, violence, the death of a loved one, or the event of a severe health condition. An effective intervention includes these sequence of steps:

  • Understanding the patient's history.
  • Creating a good relationship.
  • Addressing these events through an open discussion.
  • Giving emotional support.

If a severe crisis is poorly managed, a person can experience significant psychological stress, which has been correlated to major depressive disorder and other psychological conditions.

Furthermore, crisis intervention effectively prevents the development of mental illnesses and can be used in a healthcare setting to treat patients who may be suffering from one. Successful crisis interventions reduced return visits and stay duration in emergency departments along with capable crisis intervention teams for adult and pediatric patients.

Anxiety disorder treatment may prove beneficial to people suffering from crisis trauma through specific behavioral therapies that promote the integration of spirituality, self-care, and essential life skills.

About Alcohol Intervention

In 2019 data released by the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, nearly 15 million people ages 12 and older suffered from alcohol abuse disorder.

When an individual's alcohol abuse affects those around them, close friends and family members do not have to stand by idly. A constructive approach to finding out the individual's actions and getting them to do something about it is feasible. Organizing an alcohol abuse intervention for a person is often the key to understanding their problematic alcohol use.

The effectiveness of an intervention lies in the participants' commitment to connecting to the strength of the individual's relationships with family members and close friends, get them outside of their own subjective and selfish reasons, and analyze their actions through the eyes of others close to them.

Rehabilitation centers offering alcohol recovery programs address the points needed for someone suffering from alcoholism to fully recover and hopefully give them a second chance to integrate themselves again into society.

About Drug Intervention

A drug intervention is a carefully orchestrated dialogue between an interventionist, loved ones, and a drug-addicted person. An intervention's end objective is to enable the addicted person to understand they have a problem, that it is affecting them and their loved ones, and that they need to seek professional help.

During the whole intervention process, problems may occur, such as the drug abuser's denial. If they cannot see how their substance addiction problem damages others' lives, they are more likely to avoid change. Friends and family who hope to see the sufferer achieve positive transformation can become disappointed if they are rejected. A professional interventionist and a well-prepared group of family and friends, on the other hand, will often overcome frustration and conquer these barriers.
