Get help for a loved one

An intervention is an orchestrated attempt by one or many people – usually family and friends – to get someone to seek professional help with an addiction or other mental illness. Interventions can be used to address serious personal problems, including, but not limited to, alcoholism, compulsive gambling, drug abuse, compulsive eating and other eating disorders, self-harm and being the victim of abuse.

The Intervention Process

Pre-intervention planning through treatment admission

The first phase begins at the first call and includes all preparatory work for the intervention, the intervention network session(s), the necessary follow-up sessions to facilitate entry into treatment and treatment program recommendations. We will help determine which type of treatment option might be best for each individual. This will include screening and selection recommendations for inpatient and/or outpatient treatment.

Recovery Management Services-Treatment and post treatment consultation

The second phase begins immediately upon entry into treatment and covers treatment coordination and aftercare services for six months. We provide the interface with the intervention network and the treatment provider; coordination of aftercare; re-integration planning if the individual is returning home or to the community; advice on beginning to use self-help meetings, and setting up a self-help support network; addressing questions related to ongoing treatment and other recovery related issues; relapse prevention; and emergency meetings if relapse occurs. These Recovery Management Services are essential in early recovery, building in monitoring and accountability to ensure lasting recovery.

A professional intervention may be right for you if:

  • You have tried to communicate your concerns but behaviors persist.
  • You are too enmeshed or emotionally charged to effectively communicate your concerns.
  • Family members are geographically dispersed.
  • You need help navigating community and financial resources.
