People who struggle with addiction are often in denial about their situation and unwilling to seek treatment. As a result, they may not recognise the negative effects their behaviours have on themselves and others. An intervention presents your loved one with a structured opportunity to make changes before things worsen, and it can motivate them to seek or accept help.
When it comes to getting your loved one into rehab, we know that the window for successful intervention can be small. But, we are here to work with you to get them the help they need and to start the recovery process. If a member of your family is in crisis, call our intervention team.
Our Priority Admission Service (PAS) enables direct admission for your loved one within 48 hours of enquiry. Our best practice priority admission service can normally accommodate new admissions within 48 hours of your initial inquiry.
We can admit your loved one into our treatment centres immediately following your free 60-Minute Consultation.
Following our comprehensive, holistic model of care, your loved one is given the best chance for success.
All staff members, including nurses, medical staff, and clinical psychologists, are registered with AHPRA.
Our intervention team can simultaneously help your family member manage their addiction and mental illness.
An intervention can motivate someone to seek help for alcohol or drug abuse, compulsive eating, or other addictive behaviours. Examples of addictions that may warrant an intervention include:
Unfortunately, when a person is struggling with addiction, they often find it hard to see or acknowledge it themselves. Therefore, you may need to join forces with others and take action through a formal intervention.
An intervention is a carefully planned process done by family and friends, in consultation with a professional such as a licensed alcohol and drug counsellor or directed by an intervention professional (interventionist). At The Hader Clinic, our founder and interventionist, Richard Smith, will help you facilitate the intervention process.
During the intervention, these people confront their loved ones about the consequences of their addiction and ask them to accept immediate treatment. The intervention:
To understand your loved one's specific situation, we conduct a free 60-Minute Consultation — a thorough drug abuse intervention. After we gain some insight into their struggle with addiction and establish whether the patient also has a serious mental illness, we can begin developing a specialised treatment plan that will see them through.
Following the consultation, your family member or friend is admitted to a 28-Day Withdrawal & Detox Program, focused on detox and managing the physical symptoms of withdrawal. All patients of The Hader Clinic go through this treatment process as their first introduction to a new life free from addiction.
Our Inpatient Rehabilitation Program helps the person struggling to readjust to a life free from addiction. Our intervention team apply the same holistic model of care in this phase, with an increasing focus on assisting patients in finding their own sense of responsibility, accountability, and, most importantly, independence.
Following the second stage treatment program, your loved one may require ongoing personal care and maintenance in the future. The Hader Clinic offers a comprehensive aftercare program, allowing you the best possible chance of long term freedom from addiction.
When it comes to facing addiction, the first step is always the most difficult. Substance abuse interventions are where concerned family and friends come together to help an addict understand how their addiction affects everyone around them. Acknowledging and confronting addiction is a challenging but necessary first step toward helping addicts start recovery.
Emotions always run high when you seek a treatment program for a loved one’s addiction. Undertaking an intervention for someone dealing with drug misuse and alcohol dependence needs to be a carefully planned process. This will ensure that all present are on the same page, presenting a united front of love and support to the addict.
Discover when to hold one and how to make it successful.
A family member or friend proposes an intervention and forms a planning group of people who care about the addict. It's best to consult with a qualified addiction professional or interventionist at this stage. You can use our enquiry form above to start the intervention process with The Hader Clinic.
The group members share details of the loved person's substance abuse problem, research the condition and search for treatment programs. The Hader Clinic sends an Intervention Information Pack by email or fax, and our interventionist makes contact with the group. The planning group forms a team that will directly participate in the intervention.
Each team member describes specific incidents where the addiction caused problems, such as emotional or financial issues. For example, "I was upset and hurt when you drank …" If your loved one doesn't accept treatment, each member should decide what action they will take. For example, you ask your loved one to move out.
The night before the event, the intervention team meets with our interventionist. This session runs through the 60-Minute Consultation process.
Without revealing the reason, the person struggling is asked to meet. First, team members express their concerns about the person’s substance abuse. Next, your loved one is presented with a treatment option and asked to accept it on the spot. Finally, each team member will say what specific action they will make if their loved one disagrees.
The addict starts their first 28-Day Withdrawal & Detox Program with The Hader Clinic, where they will be detoxed and helped through withdrawal. Our team liaises with the professional interventionist throughout this process and offers ongoing support to the family, advising them of treatment progression.
Family members and friends are engaged in the ongoing support of their loved one to help them stay in treatment and avoid relapsing. Changing daily routines, participating in counselling with your loved one, seeking therapy and recovery support, and knowing what to do if relapse occurs will all contribute considerably to the person struggling’s chances of long-term recovery.
Consulting an addiction professional will help you organise an effective intervention. At The Hader Clinic, our interventionist will consider your loved one's particular circumstances to help suggest the type of treatment and follow-up plan that is likely to work best.
Often interventions are conducted by a group of friends and family without an intervention professional. However, having expert help is preferable to help plan the intervention, keep it on track and offer support to the group. It’s essential to engage a professional interventionist for the safety of the group and your loved if the person struggling:
Me and my family have nothing but positive things to say about this program. Right from the beginning from the support we received from the team, through to the professional treatment our loved one has received — we couldn't be happier.
He is the happiest we have ever seen him, and fully committed to living life in recovery. The facilities are clean, the staff are professional and caring and the support we have received as a family is second to none. Thank you to the team at The Hader Clinic. We have our friend back!
I cannot recommend The Hader Clinic enough. This is the rehab I chose when my husband was struggling with drug addiction. The support, professionalism and respect shown to both my husband and I is second to none. I cannot thank this place enough.
2 years on, not only has my husband gained a clean start at life again, but has also found lifelong friends and a fantastic support network to help him continue on this path. Well done to all the staff. Results and success rates speak for themselves.
The Hader Clinic has saved my son's life, and I will be forever indebted to them. The staff at their facilities have always been welcoming and courteous, which made it so much easier for my son to feel comfortable in his time there.
The complete change in my son has been amazing and his outlook on his life and future is now so positive. Thanks to The Hader Clinic, I know he will make something of his life with their continued support. Thank you so much.
12 months ago, our family had run out of options. Our daughter had been addicted for years and we had tried everything to help her. We feared the worst was going to happen at any time.
A late night phone call to The Hader Clinic changed all our lives. Our daughter was admitted the next day and spent 3 months in The Hader Clinic's program. 12 months on, and we have just celebrated a year clean and sober! Thank you to the team at The Hader Clinic.
