What Is an Intervention?

  1. An Intervention, in all its many forms, is for your loved one to find solutions for their substance abuse and/or mental health problems they are experiencing, seek appropriate treatment solutions and discover new healthy ways of living.
  2. An intervention is a lifesaving mission whereby loving family member and concerned friends or employers are educated about addictions and/or mental health. The interventionist will guide the entire intervention process, advocating for the family, friends, and the individual struggling with addictions and/or mental health challenges

How an Intervention Works?

  1. The process is simple. It all starts with a free, 30-minute confidential conversation with Patricia Pike.

About Addiction Science

Many people don’t understand why or how other people become addicted to drugs. They may mistakenly think that those who use drugs lack moral principles or willpower and that they could stop their drug use simply by choosing to. Drug addiction is a complex disease and quitting usually takes more than good intentions or a strong will. Drugs change the brain in ways that make quitting hard, even for those who want to. Fortunately, researchers have found treatments that can help people recover from drug addiction and lead productive lives. Taken from: https://nida.nih.gov/
