Intervention Steps?

The main goal of a successful intervention is to get the addict to agree to go to a treatment facility.


Seeing loved one struggle with addictions and/or mental health issues and being unable to help can be one of the most painful and heartbreaking experiences for family members and friends. It is critical to stop or manage a person’s drug and/or alcohol consumption.


An intervention can motivate someone to seek help for alcohol or drug misuse or other addictive behaviors.


It is an important event, created by family and friends of a person struggling with addiction, to help the person realize they have a problem, they need help, and they have support.


At CanAm Interventions, we help family and/or friends manage the complexities of addictions and/or mental health challenges by providing them skills to become more equipped and understand them.

Successful Interventions:

It is important for the intervention group to know interventions are not only for persons with untreated addiction or mental health challenges, but it is also for the family and friends, to know they have done all they can do to offer their loved one professional help.


A successful intervention must be planned carefully to work as intended. If the meeting is structured, especially with help from a professional interventionist, it can be a 90 percent success in convincing the person, to get the help they need.

A poorly planned intervention can worsen the situation — your loved one may feel attacked and become isolated or more resistant to treatment.


Consult with CanAm Intervention to make a treatment plan for your loved one. We will structure the planning process, guide the intervention team, and lead the overall event.


The only way for interventions to be successful is if they are based in love, honesty, and support.

Choosing an Interventionist?

It can be heartbreaking and nerve-wracking when someone you care about has a substance use disorder. You might have a family member, or another loved one who is unable to stop drinking or using drugs. You’ve pointed out how their addiction is tearing your family apart and talked about the hope of recovery.


You may also feel like you’ve done everything you can think of to encourage this transformation, they may also be resisting your pleadings to get the help they need and deserve.

Finding the right Intervention Specialist?

Many families think they must wait for their loved one to hit rock bottom before he or she will be willing to change. It’s frightening to watch addicted family members risk their lives, and sometimes the lives of others, hoping they’ll change before it’s too late. You worry they’ll end up in jail, in the hospital, or worse. But an interventionist can change that.

Interventionists are Passionate:

Finding the right interventionist could be the best decision you make. The right person will know which words and approaches are going to be most effective in breaking down barriers and revealing the truth to your loved one.
