Does Intervention work?


Success rates of intervention are far higher than you would expect.  Most families, when hearing how an intervention works, are fearful that it won’t work for them. This fear is usually based on their experience of failed attempts. Families usually try a variety of techniques including making threats, guilt trips, begging and pleading.  These generally don’t work and in fact just reinforce addiction within the family.

Families try all of the above because they are desperate.  They have had enough of the situation and desperately want change.  They will try anything but nothing seems to change.

Addiction is an illness which requires professional help.  It has been proven that if families seek help and support for themselves and agree on a united plan of action with the interventionist, the alcoholic or addict will accept help.

At The Providence Projects, we have seen interventions work on countless occasions.  Families are often astounded on how smooth the process is after having failed for many years to get their loved one to accept help.

There are a variety of intervention methods we can use and generally we use either The Arise or Johnson Model.  To find out more about these approaches, and whether intervention is appropriate for your situation, please contact us today on 0800 9550945 and ask for Paul Spanjar who will talk you through the intervention process.

"An unassuming house in the heart of Boscombe where miracles happen. From my initial talk with Paul, the admission process with Jon and my induction with Darryl, I was treated with compassion, empathy and understanding. All the staff had been in the same position as me!...If you are looking for a wealth of experience and knowledge around addiction, a safe environment to turn your life around and a solid foundation for your ongoing recovery you will not be disappointed.”
"Today my husband Paul is 1 year clean and sober thanks to The Providence Projects, he has found himself again and is living the life he deserves. " A life beyond his wildest dreams "… He initially signed up for 1 month but soon realised he needed a further 2 months. Paul has been dedicated and followed the advice given to him. He would not be here today if he hadn't been to The Providence Projects. I cannot thank or praise the program and staff enough…”
"A very special place, with wonderful staff. 3 years on life is amazing. Thank you so much for everything you all did for me. Alcohol dependant and a chronic gambler the Provi gave me a platform to turn life around and that it has, meaningful relationships, wonderful friends and most importantly peace of mind. You told me good things would happen and they have - and continue to do so. Highly recommended..."
