Steps for Services

Patricia M. Pike, Addiction Specialist & Certified Intervention Professional – Interventions & Addiction Services !


Saving A Life Starts Here

Watching a loved one continue down a path of substance abuse and self-destruction is devastating. As their life hangs in the balance, you may feel powerless and afraid that you’ll further distance the addicted person from you by insisting they get help.

As drug treatment and intervention professionals, we are trained and experienced in cutting through the inevitable confusion, emotion and stress in these situations to establish ground rules and a framework for a successful outcome.

Full Intervention Services

Fees and cost for services will be discussed with family members and/or friendsInterventions are not therapy sessions. 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.

The Interventionist will guide the entire intervention process, advocating for the family, friends, and individuals struggling with addictions and/or mental health challenges.

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

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.

Our Intervention Steps Includes:

    1. Family Assessment Meeting

    The interventionist first finds out about the extent of your loved one’s problem and research the condition and treatment programs.

    The interventionist comes up with a complete assessment and treatment plan for the identified individual and family members who are struggling with addiction or mental health issues and determine the type of intervention that will be most effective.

    And may initiate arrangements to enroll your loved one in a specific treatment program.

    1. Form the Intervention Team

    A team is formed by gathering family, friends and sometimes a coworker or boss. The intervention specialist will offer support by educating all participants on addiction, mental health challenges, recovery treatment process and other intervention processes. Meet our strategic partners.

    1. Preparation and Rehearsal

    Someone struggling with drug abuse or addiction might not see how their actions affect others. Friends and family can help trigger a “moment of clarity” by describing their concerns and ways the addicted person has hurt them. These stories should be pre-written and reviewed by a professional, along with the other members of the intervention team, before the intervention. Everyone must rehearse and prepare for the family intervention with guidance and clarity on the topics that will be discussed.

    1. Make Plan

    This includes scheduling a specific day, time of day, location, and guest list. The space where the family intervention is held should be familiar and non-threatening to the addict. This puts the person more at ease during the intervention and will increase the chances of success. It will also be helpful to try to schedule a meeting time when the addict will not be extremely intoxicated.

    1. Decide on Specific Consequences

    If your loved one doesn’t accept treatment, each person on the team needs to decide what action he or she will take.

    1. Treatment Referrals

    Since the goal of the intervention is to get the addict into treatment. It’s important that you have chosen the treatment centers before doing the intervention.  It goes without saying that arrangements must be made in advance.

    There are many types of treatment centers out there. Make sure that you do the research to find one that meets your needs and coordinate with the staff. The treatment placement process includes gathering information about the family’s insurance policy and/or private pay budget.

    1. Hold Intervention Meeting

    Without revealing the reason, your loved one with the addiction is asked to the intervention site. Members of the team then take turns expressing their concerns and feelings. Your loved one is presented with a treatment option and asked to accept that option on the spot. Each team member will say what specific changes he or she will make if your loved one doesn’t accept the plan.

    The Intervention is directed by the Certified Intervention professional.

    1. Travel Coordination

    The Certified Intervention Professional supports the family in making travel arrangements with the selected treatment program for the identified individual, with clear steps, goals, and guidelines.

    1. Intervention Aftercare Services

    Post-intervention/aftercare case management is recommended. Studies have shown that individuals and families that participate in aftercare and case management services have a higher level of success.

    1. Follow Up

    Involving a spouse, family members or others is critical to help someone with an addiction stay in treatment and avoid relapsing. This can include changing patterns of everyday living to make it easier to avoid destructive behavior, offering to participate in counseling with your loved one, seeking your own therapist and recovery support, and knowing what to do if relapse occurs.
