Christian Intervention

The Importance of Intervention

Watching a loved one struggle with addiction is one of the most painful human experiences. It’s easy to feel hopeless as you agonize over their safety and health – being unable to get through to them is alienating and creates feelings of helplessness. Oftentimes we wait too long, hoping that one day our loved one will wake up and ask for help. Unfortunately, this is very unlikely to happen on its own. Many people believe that someone suffering from substance use disorder must hit “rock bottom” before going into treatment. At Celebrate Hope, we believe that it’s important to intervene quickly and with kindness. This is where a Christian intervention becomes most effective.

Addiction Intervention Rooted in Faith

The most powerful force in the world is love – the love of family, friends, and Christ. We believe that by gathering together and demonstrating this love to a person suffering from addiction, we can help them to realize the severity of their problem and clear their path to recovery.

By meeting our loved ones where they are, sharing how their choices have impacted us, and offering our testimonies, we follow the directives outlined in the gospel of Matthew: “If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. But if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses’” (Matthew 18:15-16). We do all of this in love, with the hope of change founded in our trust of the Lord. Guided by a highly-trained Christian interventionist, your family will offer a moment of clarity to your loved one, providing a way out of their suffering.

What is a Christian Intervention?

Our Christian interventionists have a proven track record and high success rate. The process is designed to motivate your loved one to enter treatment on the same day of the intervention. It has the added benefit of enhancing the health of long-term family relationships, while removing the addiction from controlling and harming the family.

The Christian intervention process begins with a confidential telephone call to the admissions team at Celebrate Hope. One of our trained interventionists will ask you a series of questions to formulate a plan and to set up an in-person meeting, called the pre-intervention.

During the pre-intervention, the Christian interventionist will lead this conversation and explain what to expect in the moment; the group will also learn strategies to combat the denial and resistance that is to be expected in this process. Ground rules are discussed and developed, and the interventionist will help all attendees to verbalize their concerns related to their loved one’s drug or alcohol use. This, combined with education about effective communication techniques, eliminates all “what-ifs” and allows everyone to fully participate in the intervention.

Celebrate Hope’s Christian interventions are conducted from a place of full support, Godly love, and empathetic compassion. We are not there to belittle or judge your loved one. Because of our emphasis on care and trust, we prefer the term “lovefrontation” to “confrontation.” The purpose of this process is to fully express, in love and truth, your concerns, worries, and hopes for your loved one. We do this while remembering the purpose, goal, and expectation is one thing and one thing only: your loved one will be entering treatment that very same day.
