One of the leading symptoms of addiction is denial. Oftentimes, people in addiction don’t believe they are addicted. They believe that they are still in control even when their life circumstances indicate otherwise. Because of this, interventions are sometimes necessary. An intervention is when the people closest to the addict get together to discuss the drug problems and to offer support and possible solutions. An intervention can provide the format for someone suffering from addiction to see the impact their actions have had on those they love.
In order for the intervention to have the greatest positive impact, it’s important that the people involved think things out beforehand and remain calm during the intervention. It can be helpful for them to meet before the intervention to plan out how best to approach the issues and what solutions and support each person can offer.
It is usually best to research treatment options before the intervention so the discussion can focus on what can be done to help solve the addiction. If the person agrees to enter drug rehab, their family and friends should be ready to help them pack a bag and leave as soon as possible to get started on the road to recovery without delay.
It can often be helpful to invite a mediator to the invention. At Renaissance Ranch, we provide full interventions for clients and their families.

Real Stories of Recovery
As soon as I walked through the doors of the Ranch I felt hope. My life had spiraled into depths of shame, misery, guilt, depression, sadness, and suffocating darkness prior to reaching those front doors. The 2 months that followed would forever change my life and provide a foundation within that is unshakable.
Renaissance Ranch gave me a gift that no amount of money can ever repay. Through their unique, caring approach I learned how much I was loved, and that I never had to feel alone every again.
My sobriety date is July 15 2008. And for that I am very grateful. The ranch has given Me the tools to live a life I never thought was possible. I have never forgotten the feelings I felt when I was there in treatment and that's what gets me through the day, is the feelings and brotherhood that I was so blessed with while I was in the ranch.
I have been called to serve a full time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, in the Fort Collins, CO mission. I am eternally grateful for the sacrifices and love of everyone at The Ranch. I attribute my recovery to God, hard work, and the things I learned while I was there. I am so excited to go serve my Heavenly Father, it has been a long hard road to get here but I know it is what he wants me to do. My heart is full of gratitude and love for those who have cared for me... Thank you for all you have done for me...
I had a head full of gospel knowledge and a heart full of shame. I felt like a failure. I hated who I was. That all changed during my stay at Renaissance Ranch. I quickly realized that I wasn't alone and that there were others who felt the same feelings of self-hatred, failure, and shame. This realization, coupled with the nonjudgmental environment of the Ranch, I was able to be completely honest and open for the first time in my life. From the guidance and empathy of my counselors and brothers, I learned it was okay to feel and I started to believe that there was hope.
Renaissance Ranch will always be a special place to me and will always have a special place in my heart. I had already attended one rehab facility. The Ranch truly saved my life by teaching me and allowing me to understand and love who I am.
