  5. What does crisis Intervention mean?
Asked: 2018-06-08 00:46:41
My therapist recommended a crisis intervention for my drug-addicted boyfriend. What should I prepare for?

If there is a crisis intervention for your boyfriend, he will be presented with options for prompt treatment and assistance for his addiction. This may include his immediate family, medical professionals and yourself. Please keep in mind that he may be hesitant or even standoffish at first, but you have to hold your ground and hold him accountable for his actions and his future. You can be supportive and loving while also urging him to do the right thing and get help before it’s too late.

In a crisis intervention, a medical professional, counselor or doctor will help you and perhaps his family get your boyfriend immediate, short-term help before it’s too late. You should be ready to be patient, loving and supportive, but you also need to be firm and insistent that he gets the help he needs.
