Intervention Services

We do not end up in your life by mistake.

What is an Intervention?

Firstly, I want to congratulate you for getting this far.

An intervention is a positive confrontation facilitated by a Certified Intervention Professional. The purpose is to educate and guide individuals and their loved ones struggling with addictions and/or mental health challenges, with a goal for them to accept professional treatment. The interventionist will guide through the entire intervention and recovery process. The first step starts with a free 30-minute telephone call with CanAm Interventions.

How an Intervention Works?

It takes a lot to get here. Embrace self-compassion.

It is challenging to watch loved one’s struggle with untreated addiction to drugs and/or alcohol, or mental health conditions. We understand the overwhelming sense of hopelessness when you feel like you are unable to help yourself or your loved ones. That’s why we are here… to offer hope. Utilizing an alternate approach by accessing professional help. The first step starts with a free 30-minute telephone call with CanAm Interventions.

Surprise Intervention

 Preparing for a surprise intervention starts by developing an intervention team. The Surprise Intervention model is based on the concept of an unexpected, but orchestrated intervention.

The goal of the surprise model is not to blame, but instead speaking from your heart and focusing on the evidence of their substance abuse or mental health conditions. The surprise approach is directed every step of the way by an interventionist that includes intervention preparation meetings, writing assignments, treatment planning, logistics & timelines, education on substance abuse disorders and mental health conditions and supporting families to set loving limits. 

Invitational Intervention

The purpose of the invitational intervention is that this is a planned family engagement meeting to foster open communication among the family members. This intervention will assess how the family is being affected by their loved one’s addictions and gather evidence on the untreated person’s addiction or mental health conditions.

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 interventionist with a goal to attend the family meetings, this is all directed by the interventionist.

Mental Health Interventions

At CanAm Interventions we collaborate with many professionals supporting persons with complex mental health conditions. We consult with addiction physicians, psychologists, psychiatrist, nurses, lawyers, recovery coaches, and/or mental health clinicians.

A mental health intervention may not look like a traditional intervention.

Mental health interventions may start with a crisis intervention. The process of a mental health intervention starts with an intake call to gather information on your loved one, to create a treatment plan, to determine the best professional approach.

It is important to take action to help your loved one with mental condition by accessing professional help. 

About Substance Abuse Disorders:

The goal of a successful intervention is to help your loved one, and to support the entire family and friends. This all starts with commitment. Seeing a loved one’s struggle with addictions and/or mental health conditions and not being able to help them can be one of the most painful and heartbreaking experiences for parents, family members and friends.

It is critical to stop trying to manage your loved one’s drug and/or alcohol consumption. An intervention can be the helping hand your loved ones needs to accept help for addictive behaviors or mental health conditions. 

Interventions are an important process directed by a professional to support your family, and to help your loved one realize they have a problem and need treatment.  At CanAm Interventions, we help family and/or friends manage the complexities of addictions and/or mental health challenges by providing them the skills to become more equipped to start the recovery healing process.

Many people don’t understand why or how people become addicted to drugs. They 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:
