One Person At A Time

How can you help a Loved one that doesn’t want help?

Structured Family Intervention (SFI) is a type of intervention that involves the family members of an individual who is struggling with addiction or other behavioural issues. The goal of SFI is to help the family members understand the nature of addiction and how it affects the individual and the family as a whole.

SFI typically involves a series of meetings or sessions with a trained interventionist who works with the family to develop a plan for addressing the individual’s addiction or behavioural issues.

The interventionist helps the family members communicate with each other constructively and supportively and encourages them to work together to support the individual in their recovery.

SFI can be an effective way to help individuals struggling with addiction or other behavioural issues. It provides a supportive and structured environment for the individual and their family to work together towards recovery.

It can also help address any underlying issues within the family that may contribute to the individual’s addiction or behavioural issues.

Therapeutic Family Interventions

Helping someone who doesn't want help can be challenging for family members and friends, but there are some things you can do to support them:

  1. Be patient and understanding: It’s important to remember that change takes time, and everyone has their own journey. Try to be patient and understanding with the person, and let them know you’re there for them whenever they’re ready to talk.

  2. Listen without judgment: Sometimes, people just need someone to listen to them without offering advice or criticism. Could you let the person know you’re there to listen whenever they’re ready to talk?

  3. Offer support: Even if the person doesn’t want help, you can still offer support in other ways. This could be as simple as checking in on them regularly or helping them with everyday tasks.

  4. Educate yourself: Learn as much as possible about the person’s struggles to better understand what they’re going through and how you can help.

  5. Encourage professional help: While it’s ultimately up to the person to seek professional help, you can encourage them by providing resources and information about therapy or other forms of treatment. Let them know that you care about them and want to support them in their journey towards recovery.

Structured Family Intervention is based on LOVE & HONESTY & COMPASSION. Please look at how I have done Structured Family Intervention for the last 20 years.
