Intervention is a failure if the individual does not agree to go for treatment.
Intervention always has a positive effect whether on the target individual or the participants. It is a last resort to save a life. When all is said and done, family and friends know they have done all they can do to help the individual access treatment..
A well-planned, Professional Intervention seldom fails.
Although the individual who is the focus of intervention may refuse the proposed treatment, family and friends know they have done everything possible to save the life of one they love.
When we intervene whether individually or with a group, we continue to chip away at the addiction. Intervention is positive and continuous.
