Drug and Alcohol Addiction Intervention
Listening to the addicted person’s objections
Successful Intervention Tips. Tip #4. This video is about listing out and handling any and all objections that may arise during the course of a drug and alcohol addiction intervention. In this series of video’s Bobby Newman, Internationally Certified Drug and Alcohol Counselor, discusses the Successful Intervention Tips that help family and friends of addicted loved one’s learn how to help those struggling with addiction.
Listing out the objections that you’re going to have is a very, very important step. Later on in the video, I’m going to tell you how to get our 25 tips as well as the intervention course, and tell you how to get that. But what this is about, it’s very important, as you unify your team and you’re putting people together and before you go in and actually confront your loved one, you need to list out all the objections that you think that they’re going to have. Whether it be, “I can’t go because of my job. I can’t go because I’ve got a drug court in next week. Or I can’t go because my dog needs to be cared for. Or I’ve got all these bills to take care of. Or I’ve got this, or I’ve got that.” We actually have, as a team specializing in drug and alcohol addiction intervention, part of the job is handling all those reasons why this person’s going to give you, they can’t go to treatment. And if we list those things out, as the time when we’re talking to them, we just say, “Hey, I thought of that. And this is what we can do about that.”
I’ve had people that were high level executives that had multi business deals going that were able to effectively go into treatment. Because number one, the treatment programs, a lot of times are equipped to deal with people that have ongoing situations that allow them to continue to do business or take care of their matters as they’re in treatment. It’s not that they’re cut off from the world. With most treatment programs that have been around a while, there’s really no issue that they haven’t faced or had to deal with, with a person who’s on drugs who has external outside of the treatment program. So that part of the intervention team is to help the person be able to comfortably confront their addiction, and that means you have to take care of all the little things that they’re going to object to.
So listing out all the objections they’re going to have and coming up with a solution to those prior to confronting your addict is very, very important.
