At the core, intervention is a process involving love, concern, and compassion. The “old style”, very confrontational way of intervening left many overwhelmed and emotionally “hungover”. They were effective, yes, but the newer style is oriented toward painting a more realistic picture of how the addict has changed through the process, how they have affected others, and then throwing them a life ring. This is just as effective as the confrontational way, but requires more planning and staging. We are able to adapt various strategies to facilitate the best possible outcome.
Addiction is know as the “family disease”, and presents many challenges for even the most stable family system. Change is possible with the appropriate methods to help those suffering with addiction get the help they deserve. It is also important for the family to begin the process of change, and begin to learn more appropriate ways of supporting the addicts, and in sustaining change.
In most states, there are no requirements for credentialing of interventionists. We believe it is important to use a credentialed and/or licensed counselor to do the intervention. There are obvious reasons, such as knowing complicating family dynamics, Mental Health concerns, secondary compulsivities, and appropriate treatment program selection. There are also some others concerns with being able to steer families into the help that they need, not only to support the person in need, but also to begin systemic change with family and social circles. These will support the newly recovering person and aid in healing families.
We are able to mobilize very quickly to any area, and remain flexible through the entire process to accommodate your unique situation and circumstance.
We maintain a relatively small referral base of facilities and programs throughout the US. We refer to well-established, experienced, appropriate, and stable programs only. Our goal is to choose the best available program to elicit the best possible outcome. We have no financial ties with any program or facility.
