Part of the role of an interventionist in a Pennsylvania is to educate the family about addiction. They provide information about the disease and help prepare the family members for what to expect during the intervention.
The goal of the process is to encourage the addict to get help. It is supposed to be an organized process where family members and close friends share their concern about the situation with the addict. It’s not to be used as an opportunity to berate or shame the person who is addicted. Ideally, the intervention stays on track, even if the addicted family member is defensive.
If the addicted loved one agrees to go to treatment, the interventionist can escort them to the treatment facility immediately following the intervention.
