Message from CEO Patricia Pike of CanAm Interventions. I’m a certified Intervention Professional and a Licensed Addiction Specialist who has worked professionally for over 25 years both in the U.S.A and Canada. I specialize in addictions dealing with complex intervention, family coaching & support and aftercare services for both the client and their families. I have helped many families and untreated persons with addiction, mental health access treatment, and recovery. I am inspired by families who have called on me, it is a gift to support them. If you have a loved one who struggles with an addiction to drugs or alcohol, our team at CanAm Interventions can help ignite the recovery and family healing process.
What is an Intervention – a lifesaving mission whereby loving family members and concerned friends or employers are educated about addictions and mental health, led by a certified interventionist for the purpose of helping a loved one, providing them with an opportunity for recovery.
What is the objective of an intervention? The objective is to educate, facilitate change within the structure of the family environment to provide recovery resources.
Intervention Meetings: Facilitating two educational meetings with the family and friends by preparing and supporting the intervention group on topics such as; untreated addiction and recovery resources, setting healthy boundaries. It is essential to help families set clear boundaries to start their own recovery journey.
What happens if your loved ones say No? If clients do not agree or accept treatment on the day of the intervention the family has gained recovery resources through the intervention process, to continue on with their own recovery process.
Intervention Outcomes: If the patient refuses treatment on the day of the intervention, it is NOT a failure although it is an emotional letdown for all involved. Interventions are most often sought out because 85% of patients make the decision to accept treatment on the day of the interventions and the other 15?% accept treatment within two weeks only if the family follows the intervention plans.
