Understanding Mental Health

We’re Ready to Help with Addiction and/or Mental Health Cases!

Is your loved one battling addiction, chronic pain, a mental health challenge, or a process disorder? Professionally interventions led by Patricia have a 92% success rate — meaning that the individual accepts treatment.

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 To Expect During an Intervention

Because of the complexity of mental illness, it is incredibly important that the intervention process is handled by a trained professional. It can be difficult to identify these disorders because many of them present overlapping symptoms – alternatively, substance abuse could mask telltale signs of a disorder. It’s also crucial for you to be aware that these particular interventions can be very emotionally charged. Your loved one may not believe that they have a problem, and may not have ever received a formal diagnosis. They also may have a previous treatment plan that they have chosen to ignore, and could believe that they know what’s best for their health (even though you see real issues in their day-to-day lives). This is why CanAm Intervention recommends that mental health interventions take place under the supervision of a trained facilitator.

Family Has a Major Roles in Mental Health Intervention

Mental health issues often go on for too long or don’t ever receive treatment because they require loved ones to identify the problem and the need for help. It often takes outside help to address mental health issues as a real problem.

Preventing mental health issues requires investing in early intervention programs and services at the earliest signs of a problem. Studies show that many people who develop mental health disorders show symptoms by the age of 14. Waiting too long to take action to help a mental issue in your child can lead to crisis situations such as trouble with the law, dropping out of school, involvement with drugs, or suicide.
