When you hear the term “intervention” you likely imagine the dramatic confrontation that you see on television. However, this is not always the case.
The fact is, when it comes to “real life” interventions may be presented in a number of ways. There are brief interventions that only last for about five minutes to a half of an hour, where a doctor screens a patient for an issue with substance abuse and then recommends a treatment program.
In other cases, an intervention is a series of educational workshops or sessions that the addict attends with family members. While there are some interventions that are similar to the ones you see on television, they are usually not as dramatic.
It is important to remember that the ultimate goal of any intervention is to help the person with the addiction recover from the problem they have.
