There are many reasons that a person should be admitted to a rehabilitation center even though its not drug related. But most of the time, to engage a person that has problems would be difficult because he or she may not want help at all and most probably won’t be in the right frame of mind.

So what could you do to help? One way is use a technique called intervention designed by Chapman House Family. Intervention is appropriate for a person with a drinking problem, drug abuse problem, gambling problem, eating disorder, psychiatric problem, adolescent with emotional or behavioral problems and even persons who are extremely depressed.

The technique was originated by Vernon Johnson of the Johnson institute in Minnesota. So far, effectiveness of the technique has been very good with an almost 95 percent success rate. This is especially true for pre drug rehabilitation techniques. Some do’s are encouraged like breaking the no-talk rule. It is basically to encourage a person to talk about his or her problem which would help break down any defensiveness in them.

Drug rehab then would be more successful because of the prior foundation of trust built between the care giver and the person in need. Because trust is there, the addict would more willingly allow him or herself to be taken care off and be guided through a proper drug treatment plan that would be catered specifically for them.

Somethings that you shouldn’t do includes harboring upon you the ill effects of drug taking because you fear the results of a confirmation that it’s taking a toll on your body’s health. Be brave and be thoughtful that if treatment is sought early, the chances of detoxifying the body from the drugs are very highly plausible.

So why not help and encourage those who have addiction by seeking a professional interventionalist.
