Consultations & Treatment Placements:


“There is always a path forward” – Patricia M. Pike


 CanAm Interventions can set up an individual or family consultation, we are here to help!

 Families usually seek my consultation and treatment placement services because they are concerned about their loved one’s addictions and/or mental health challenges. Families are often at a loss when it comes to understanding how to support, or continue to support, their loved one.

At CanAm Interventions, we strongly believe meeting families using either a formal or informal assessment process, helps families determine the best next steps, to gain a sense of empowerment and hope, and set the foundation for successful treatment planning. By engaging in a consultation, families are taking action to solutions and are able to learn about appropriate resources, which can often include an intervention.

If a family is committed to moving forward with an intervention, CanAm Interventions can facilitate the intervention. If your family is unsure of what to do next or what steps to take to support your loved one, I encourage you to schedule a consultation.

A consultation begins the process of facilitating conversations between family and friends and offers a safe place to share thoughts and feelings about your loved one and the challenges being faced.

Recovery is joining the winning side! Patricia M. Pike, CEO of CanAm Interventions, has helped thousands of individuals accept treatment at various treatment programs domestically and internationally. CanAm Interventions providing aftercare treatment services for individuals with addictions and/or mental health challenges. Aftercare treatment services can be an integral part of achieving long term recovery.

What is Aftercare Treatment Planning? It is similar to a discharge, such as when someone is leaving the hospital. Aftercare treatment planning offers an “continuum of care” for individuals leaving treatment and transitioning back into the community. Residential treatment programs typically include several days of closely monitored detox, followed by 30 to 120 days of intensive counseling and therapy as well aftercare recommendations.

Challenges of Re-entry back into the community:

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA). Drug abuse changes the function of the brain, and many things can “trigger” drug cravings within the brain. It’s critical for those in treatment, especially those treated at an inpatient/residential facility, to learn how to recognize, avoid, and cope with triggers that they are likely to be exposed to after treatment.
