Fear is often the #1 barrier to families taking action. Families wait, on average, 7 years before seeking professional help for a loved ones addiction problem. We offer around the clock phone service to help families in crisis. One of our professionals will help outline services, whether you need an adolescent intervention, intervention for alcohol, help finding an addiction or mental health facility or just a professional to talk to, we are here to help.
Why Hire an Interventionist?
Occasionally a family calls and wonders why they need to hire someone to conduct the intervention. Addiction and the other disorders we work with are very serious in nature. They are also complicated disorders that require training and experience to navigate. Our entire staff is in recovery in one form or another. We truly understand your loved ones mind set. Typically if you are at this site you have talked to the person you are concerned about before with no success. This is why we do what we do.
A professional can break through the denial and help you present treatment in a different way. When an intervention is conducted properly the addict is not the only person receiving help. The entire family enters recovery. In addition a professional can assess your loved one, make sure the proper treatment center is chosen and negotiate the intake process.
Remember we specialize in several forms of intervention some include invitational intervention services and 1-on-1 intervention as well. Feel free to ask for more information on these.
We are here 24/7 to help 888-435-7960. If you are contemplating doing an intervention here is how it works:
The general step-by-step process:
One of the Intervention 180 staff will complete a phone assessment with you and formulate an outline of services.
Once the assessment is complete, we will decide which member of our team best meets your needs.
The chosen staff member will discuss your needs and possible treatment options. If you are unsure what treatment options are available, we can make recommendations. Our treatment resources span the entire US so finding the appropriate provider will not be a problem. There is no charge for treatment referrals.
The interventionist will meet with you and your family to perform the intervention process.
Intervention is typically a two-day process. (Excluding Crisis Intervention) Sometimes the Identified Patient (IP) is invited to attend a family workshop. This workshop addresses the families concerns and presents treatment as a gift. On other occasions we utilize what is known as a surprise intervention.
While the addict is in treatment Intervention 180 will coordinate with the treatment provider on the progress that is being made by the client and updates will be relayed to the family (Providing releases have been signed).
Intervention 180 will help network with the family community resources that are available to them in an effort to promote a holistic healing for all who are involved.
Collaboration will be made with the client's treatment provider during discharge to help ease in the transition of aftercare.
Families often tell us "this will never work" or "he/she will never go". However we still maintain a 95% success rate. As interventionists it is our job to handle their resistance and engage them in the recovery process. There is hope, intervention works.
