Do professional interventions work for addiction and/or mental health challenges? We are very experienced facilitating intervention services for both addictions and/or mental health challenges!
The intervention process is extremely effective in getting an addicted person into an appropriate drug intervention program where they will get the help they need. Interventions for mental health treatment is available.
An intervention is used after nothing else has worked. Previous attempts at change may have used reasoning, discussion, threats, ultimatums, and one-on-one tactics. When these fails, frustration can lead to anger. This can go on for years. Appeals to reason and one-on-one discussions rarely produce change in someone who is deeply engaged in self-destructive behaviors.
On the other hand, an intervention that includes several people who are meaningful to the person, can be highly effective when it is delivered in an invitational, respectful, and logical way while focusing on changing everyone’s behavior, not just the loved one.
The intervention process begins when friends, family and/or coworkers, with the help of an experienced interventionist, coordinate efforts in attempt to persuade an addict to accept professional help. Letters are written, boundaries are established, consequences are set, and the intervention is rehearsed. All possible responses and scenarios are discussed and rehearsed.
The next step of the intervention process is the actual intervention, which is most effectively orchestrated by a professional. The loved one is confronted with the letters and overwhelming love of their friends and family. They are told about his or her chemical dependence and how it is affecting everyone’s lives. They are given the choice to accept the love and help being provided or take the consequences. An executive intervention or other family intervention addressing other addictions will be customized by the crisis interventionist.

No! My goal is to find the best treatment center for your loved one. I am an independent consultant and never accept compensation for referrals from any outside source.
A successful intervention will change everybody’s life, and it may help save the life of the addict.
You will know from your own sense of comfort and trust that is gained the moment you first speak with Ms. Pike. If, for some reason, you aren’t comfortable, she will do her best to refer you to another qualified interventionist. Likewise, if there are better suited interventionists to handle your specific situation, Ms. Pike will connect you to them.
Specialized training is required to guide the intervention process successfully. Most people, including many in the addiction field, have a simplistic view of interventions – greatly underestimating the knowledge, skill, flexibility, and courage needed by the interventionist.
The training, experience, and skill of interventionists vary considerably. It can be difficult to evaluate qualifications or performance ahead of time. It is important to screen and interview an interventionist before you hire them, including finding out what their experience, education and clinical experiences are.
Our professional intervention team can listen to your concerns and work with you toward a therapeutic solution. We understand that most of your questions are driven by fear and uncertainty. We look forward to earning your trust and confidence.
