When clients \u201chit a wall\u201d in their progress, have an overwhelming urge to abandon residential drug rehab and leave, aren\u2019t tending to their schedule, skipping meetings, or otherwise being unreceptive to treatment, it\u2019s a sign that they may be in crisis. Our staff is specially trained in crisis intervention and works with the client to address their concerns so that they complete the full course of treatment needed to lay a foundation for long-term recovery. What Is Crisis Intervention? There is no one-size-fits-all approach for a person in crisis. Every person\u2019s situation is different. Therefore, the type of intervention used depends on the circumstances, progress in therapy, overall intention or willingness to continue, whether or not there\u2019s support at home upon returning, a client\u2019s health and mental well-being, and any number of other variables. One-on-one counseling may be sufficient to diffuse the desire to abandon treatment. It may be necessary to do intensive individual and group therapy, possibly introducing different therapeutic approaches. The root cause of the desire to quit treatment isn\u2019t always apparent. It often takes considerable discussion, gentle persuasion, and persistent encouragement to convince clients that their best option is to give rehab more time to work \u2014 to allow themselves to heal in the time and fashion that\u2019s best for them. Signs That Crisis Intervention May Be Needed Angry outbursts, emotional distress, or sinking into despair or depression are outward signs that a client may need crisis intervention. As with anything else during therapy, the way forward differs for each person. Some of our clients will not experience distress or require any crisis intervention. Others may have trouble from the start. Comments clients in crisis may make to therapists, counselors or fellow clients may include: \tI don\u2019t want to be here. \tI don\u2019t have a problem. \tI have better things to do with my time. \tThis therapy isn\u2019t working. \tI\u2019m better off on my own. Compassion and empathy are critical in helping clients in distress recognize that their best option is to continue with treatment. We keep the best interests of our clients in mind, whether they remain in treatment or not.
