An estimated 69,029 people died from drug overdoses in 2019 and one million people died from alcohol-related causes between 1999 and 2017. Watching an individual struggling with addiction and/or mental health challenges can be one of the most painful and heart-wrenching experiences for a parent, family members and/or friends.

What Is An Intervention?

An Intervention, in all of its many forms, is an invitation 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.

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.

Every day, people are invited to change. Licensed professionals, social workers, lawyers, addiction specialists, mental health workers, and interventionists such as Patricia Pike, invite clients to explore ways to improve their lives.

As licensed professionals, we are always inviting our clients to explore ways to improve their lives. We empower clients to be the captains of their well-being.

Ms. Pike is trained in both the Invitational Intervention Approach and Surprise Intervention Approach. We specialize in working with complex addictions and/or mental health challenges.

Un-invitational Intervention Approach: Preparing for a surprise un -invitational intervention starts by developing an intervention team and preparing for two meetings i.e., the purpose of first family meeting is to foster open communication among family members, assessment of their loved one’s addictions and/or mental health challenges. The second meeting is designed to plan an agenda for the intervention preparation process, topics will include: getting your loved one to the intervention meeting, understanding of addiction patterns, and mental health issues, orchestrating an intervention treatment plan including letter writing assignments, treatment placement referrals and a rehearsal meeting to go over all details of the intervention meeting prior to intervention day. Transportation will be arranged to support the patent directly to the treatment program on the day of the intervention. And lastly, the intervention meeting will have a structure agenda, intervention timeline, location, of the intervention and the intervention team will be prepared for intervention meeting!

The Invitational Intervention Approach: Preparing for an invitational intervention. The purpose of a family engagement meeting is to foster open communication among family members, assessment on how the family been affected by their loved one's addictions and gathering evidence on the untreated person's addiction or mental health challenges.  It's strongly suggested to not have the untreated person at the first initial family engagement meeting. It will be important to figure out who is best to attend the two-family meetings and to invite your loved one, to meet the professional interventionist and to attend the family meetings, this is all directed by the interventionist. The first meeting involves an educational workshop on topics such as substance abuse addictions, mental health and trauma, the cycle of addiction in relationships, introduction of treatment, and recovery resources. The second meeting includes a family process group, facilitated by the interventionist with open-ended conversations, addressing real time issues, current concerns, and providing recovery resources solutions for the entire family group. In some cases, a family intervention meeting can be the only purpose, to intervene on a loved one struggling with addictions or mental health challenges, prepared written letters and a treatment plan in place to escort the identified patient directly to treatment on the day of the intervention meeting.
