What 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(s) designed to empower the family, loved ones and the problematic user to accept an immediate way out. Our highly trained 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. That has a serious impact for everyone involved.
It is important to note that we work in collaboration with 2 highly regarded, licensed Treatment Centre's. One for Men and one for Women, as such we can facilitate an immediate admission into a
Residential Treatment Program.
How does it work?
There is a 3 Step process involved in the Intervention process:
Step 1: Discovery: First we need to know the background and situation of the person who needs help. A full understanding of what is going on and who will be involved is essential.
Step 2: Setting up a meeting with the family and loved ones. This session will allow everyone to understand what is going to take place during the meeting with the person who needs help. This is usually done the day before the Intervention.
Step 3: At this point we are ready to meet with everyone involved, including the addict/alcoholic. The outcome of this meeting will determine what is next.
Fees for this service are on a sliding scale. On completion of these 3 steps, there will be
arrangements made for a treatment bed (if appropriate) that would be available immediately!
Every family has different goals and needs. The Interventionist will be able asses what that is and put together a plan. Addiction affects the entire family and we understand that.
The Family Afterwards:
There are different options available to the family. For residence in the Lower Mainland,
we can provide Private Counseling for an additional cost, separate from the Intervention. Alternatively, we have our S.A.F.E. (The Substance Abuse Family Education Program)
