The very first step on the path of recovery is going to a rehab. But what’s more important is to prepare yourselves or to convince your loved one to join rehab. The addiction treatment works the best only when the addict joins the treatment willingly. There are several ways to guide you to admit someone to a rehab depending on the scenarios.
Convincing Someone To Join Rehab
The most difficult task is to convince someone to join rehab when you know they are addicted and need help but haven’t asked for one or simply aren’t ready to talk about it. In such a situation, you can follow the given tips to convince them:
- Choose a good time and place to talk where the person feels safe and comfortable to talk. You may also assure them that your discussion will remain private.
- Try to remain as calm as possible and convey your thoughts about their addiction. Be honest about your thoughts and also hear their side of the story thoroughly.
- Try to find a moment when the person is in a sober state. It will help them think rationally.
- Despite several efforts, if the person isn’t convinced yet, then approach a professional who can intervene and handle the situation properly.
If the talking stage is going on positively, try recommending some treatment options so that they can also begin to think in that direction.
Getting Someone To Rehab Against Their Will
There could be another situation where despite several convincing efforts, the person is just not ready to talk about it. In such a case, you can take help from a professional who can intervene with a court order. Even a clinician can file a petition for you which can bring in an order for the person to get admitted to a rehab. It may seem a harsh step but that’s for the greater good.
It might seem to be a difficult task to convince someone to take the treatment and it could be even more difficult when they refuse to hear you. Court – ordered intervention can help in such a case. Taylor Recovery can help you with such tough situations. You can contact us anytime to seek help
