Family Interventions

Intervention Process

The family intervention process begins with the first phone call for help. The caller will be asked a series of questions regarding the individual struggling with addiction. An initial assessment will be made to determine necessity and urgency of holding an intervention and any safety concerns that need to be addressed.

It is important for those wishing to intervene on a loved one to understand that a successful intervention is a process and not an event. When the concerned individual(s) decide to move forward with the intervention, a more in-depth assessment will occur to prepare the intervention team for the actual intervention and treatment plan.

Intervention Specialist

The Family Intervention Specialist is responsible for determining the particular model and approach to use with the intervention, family education, and guidance through the process. The intervention team will collaborate with the specialist on issues including: safety, timing and participation, location, treatment center selection, transportation needs, and family member responsibilities while their loved one is receiving treatment.

Interventions do not have to be secretive or conspiratorial. Addressing the legitimate concerns through a loving and respectful intervention can be accomplished best in most cases, when a family is willing to seek out the help of trained and experienced professionals.
