Book for priority admission

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.

How we help families and friends seeking substance abuse intervention

The Hader Clinic helps patients overcome addiction using a holistic model of care. When your family member or friend begins a specialised treatment program, they receive treatment for every facet of life afflicted by addiction, including those of a physical, psychological, emotional, social, and spiritual nature. Using this all-encompassing approach to drug and alcohol intervention, we can provide them with the best chance of ongoing success. They can begin their journey towards freedom from addiction by following these steps:

We know addiction through and through. No matter how hopeless and difficult it seems, we want you to know that it is a normal, common situation. Together, we can help your family member or friend find a new way forward.

The Hader Clinic’s Jackson Oppy explains how addicts cannot predict how much they will use once they start using or control their use.

Drug intervention steps for a loved one suffering from addiction

When it comes to facing addiction, the first step is always the most difficult. Substance abuse interventions are where other family members come together to help an addict understand how their addiction is affecting everyone around them. Acknowledging and confronting addiction is a hard but necessary first step towards helping addicts start the recovery process.

Emotions always run high when drug and alcohol interventions are started. It's incredibly important that, before you undertake an intervention for a loved one, that you thoroughly plan an intervention. This will ensure that all present are on the same page, presenting a united front of love and support to the addict.

1
Contact The Hader Clinic

We specialise in supporting families wanting to start interventions into addiction. When you contact The Hader Clinic, we will send you an Intervention Information Pack by email or fax. This thorough document outlines the rest of the process. Our interventionist will then contact you.

2
Gather family and friends

The next steps need the support of a cohesive unit of people that care about the addict. Family and friends will be asked to write letters of love and support to the addict, free from any anger, resentment, or judgement. This process will ensure that the response is measured and never emotionally charged.

3
Meet with interventionist

The night before the event, family and friends will meet with our interventionist in a convenient location. This session will be a run-through of the 60-Minute Consultation process. The interventionist will also liaise with family members to get a thorough understanding of the situation.

4
Intervention takes place

The following day, the interventionist facilitates the intervention with all family members. You can now present the addict with a treatment option, and if willing, they will be escorted to the treatment facility to begin the treatment process.

5
Treatment can begin

The addict will start their first 28-Day Withdrawal & Detox Program with The Hader Clinic, where they will be detoxed and helped through withdrawal. Throughout this process, The Hader Clinic will liaise with the interventionist and offer ongoing support to the family, advising them of the progression of treatment.
