Intervention: Help A Loved One Overcome Addiction

Our approach is different, our outcomes are different.

An intervention can motivate someone to seek help for alcohol or drug misuse, compulsive eating, untreated mental health disorder, or other addictive behaviors. Our intervention service prepares families and individuals for long-term recovery where we walk with them along the way.

Our approach starts with the truth regarding the pain of addiction balanced with the hope and love you have for the individual. Punitive action does not work when it comes to overcoming addictions or mental health conditions. We apply specific and individualized techniques for each situation, and often offer several approaches to choose from.

 In 2018, using our intervention model, 82% of our clients agreed to go to treatment the same day as the intervention.

A remaining 12% of clients went within two weeks.

Let’s get real

It is commonly stated that the last person to notice there is a problem with drug or alcohol addiction, is the addict themselves. Long before the addict becomes aware of the existence of a substance abuse problem, friends, co-workers, and family members have often already detected it. According to an article published on HealthyPeople.gov, 95 percent of substance abusers do not realize they have a problem. The purpose of an intervention is to make the person suffering realize that he or she is sick and then make the decision to seek treatment. If a person waits too long to get help, an intervention can come in the form of a legal or medical event. For example, a mandate from a drug court as an alternative to prison or a hospitalization caused by substance use . Unfortunately, the criminal justice system continues to be the largest referrer of patients to substance abuse treatment in the nation. In this case, the motivation to intervene is mostly about the public good, which will always be improved when an individual’s wellbeing has improved.

Why our approach to intervention works

When we approach the intervention from a place of love and understanding (like a family meeting), the person we’re all trying to help is much more receptive to receiving the help they deserve. Our approach is based on individualism. Each person is different, each family is different, therefore each intervention may be different. We cannot use a blanket approach when treating a serious illness such as addiction. Our team evaluates the identified patient through family members and friends, then makes a detailed recommendation on how the intervention should be conducted.
