Frequently asked questions about treatment programs and services at Origins:
What can I expect when I call an Admissions Specialist?
Will I have to discuss my life with dozens of people?
What if my family member needs an intervention?
Often, the person suffering from addiction is the last one to become aware that they need help. Addiction is a disease, and denial is a hallmark trait afflicting those who are suffering. Our Admissions Specialists can work with families and loved ones to determine if a professional intervention may be beneficial. We understand that confronting a loved one about their addiction is one of the hardest things you will have to do. Keep in mind, even in these situations, recovery is still possible.
It is a common misconception that people cannot or will not recover “unless they are really willing and have hit their own bottom.” Fortunately, there is evidence-based data that suggests outcomes are similar for people who complete treatment, regardless of what got them into treatment (court, intervention, etc.).
