what is an intervention?

family interventions, intervention, gambling addiction, sexual addiction Family Interventions are a highly structured meeting between an addict and their loved ones or co-workers.  Family Interventions are used for drug addiction, gambling addiction, sexual addictions and mental health disorders. One, sometimes two, of our trained professionals facilitates this meeting. It is important to know our family interventions have a 95% success rate when families commit to the process. Intervention 180 works with a broad spectrum of clients. Whether suffering from drug addiction, gambling addiction, sexual addiction, mental health disorders or behavioral problems, we can help. We are also equipped to locate missing persons if you do not know where your loved one is to intervene upon.

  1. Let the addict know how much they mean to others and that they are worth saving.

  2. Motivate the addict to enter treatment and participate willingly in the recovery process.

  3. Educate the family about the disease of addiction and the recovery process.

  4. Encourage the family to participate in their own recoveries as well as supporting the addict in their recovery.

  5. Help the addict transition back into the family and work environments and sustain ongoing recovery. 

Intervention 180 provides the following types of intervention services: family interventions, drug addiction intervention, alcoholism intervention, gambling addiction intervention, sexual addiction intervention, eating disorder intervention, internet addiction interventions and interventions for any other addictive disorder. We also provide adolescent intervention or troubled teen intervention and transport. 

Intervention 180 also provides family interventions for mental health disorders.  These include but are not limited to: Bipolar Intervention, Depression Intervention, Schizophrenia Intervention, Borderline Personality Disorder Intervention and Co-Occurring Disorder Intervention. 

Due to the wide array of family interventions that we provide, we combine key elements from the most effective methods of intervention to create a fresh and more versatile style of intervention.  There are several styles of intervention, which have evolved since its creation in the 1960's, by Rev. Vernon Johnson.  It is important to note, not all addicts are appropriate for the same style of intervention.  One Model Does Not Fit All.  Our interventionists utilize an eclectic approach and use the most appropriate in models to ensure a tailored intervention for each specific client.  This is done to avoid trauma, volatile responses and ensure a positive outcome.

Our method of family interventions and other interventions typically fit a two-day process unless the situation warrants otherwise:

  1. Day-One the family, friends, co-workers and interventionist meet.  During the 6-8 hour session the family learns more about the disease of addiction and what is involved in family interventions.  From there, the intervention team carefully plans the intervention.

  2. Day-Two the team meets with the individual they are concerned about to perform the intervention.  Once the intervention is complete a designated family intervention family member, the interventionist or both with transport the individual to treatment.

 

Other Methods of INtervention

It is our belief that the intervention should be formed to the clients needs. Surprise family interventions are not appropriate for everyone. Sexual addiction, eating disorders and other more complicated situations, often require several family meetings. It is not uncommon for us to work with the identified patient and family separately. This is done to prevent any further shaming, trauma or resistance.

 

Invitational Family Interventions

It is not uncommon for a caller to laugh when discussing the idea of an invitational intervention. The typical response we hear is "he/she will never show up". This is not what our statistics indicate at all. When an invitational intervention is conducted with the proper preparations, the identified patient is over 80% likely to arrive. The benefits of invitational family interventions are many. The individual is no longer the focus of the intervention, but an empowered member of the group. There is also not an angry response as in some surprise interventions. If you would like to know more about invitational family interventions, visit out invitational intervention page. Click Here
