Family1What is an Intervention?

An Intervention is a discreet and professionally planned process designed to illustrate the reality of addiction to the problematic user. It includes the provision of a solution designed to empower the problematic user to accept an immediate way out.

Our highly trained, internationally certified, and Professional Intervention Specialists use time tested principles and practices to plan a custom strategy aimed at presenting the Intervention in a professional, objective, caring, and non-judgmental manner.

It is important to note that we work in collaboration with several local men's and women's Treatment Centres and we will facilitate admission into such programs as necessary.

How does it work?

Usually, there is a 5-Step process involved in the Intervention process:

First Stage:

  • Provide information about our Intervention Services / Process
  • Phone Intake – requiring information on members of the intervention group and general information regarding the person of interest.
  • Determination re the type of Treatment needed
  • Process payment for Intervention Services

Second Stage:

  • Setting dates, time of meeting (conference call, pre-intervention and intervention)
  • Conference call(s) – with members of the intervention group
  • Arrangement of Treatment services – (e.g. Detox, Rehab, Outpatient, Counselling)

Third Stage:

  • Pre-intervention group meeting – (location set in conference meeting)
  • Extensive preparation & PowerPoint Presentations
  • Transportation development plan for admittance to Treatment

NOTE: The majority of the work in an Intervention is done during the Pre-Intervention. If done properly, the actual intervention is usually very quick (within 20 minutes normally), because every contingency has been planned and accounted for in the Pre-Intervention

Fourth Stage:

  • Pre-meeting – debriefing, final run through, setting rules
  • Arrival of Individual with substance use issues
  • Intervention process

Fifth Stage:

  • Transportation into Treatment
  • Follow up support / Contact – Family & Treatment provider
  • Referral services for support system
  • Post Treatment planning (what happens after the individual finishes Treatment)

Family / Friend Support:
The Intervention Specialist also helps the members in the alcoholic and/or drug addict’s circle of caring come to some decisions on their own about their future with that person.
