We provide services for Families who are concerned about a loved one who is addicted to alcohol, drugs, food, gambling and/or sex. Interventions are concerned people responding (CPR). They are a deliberate process by which change is introduced into the addicted persons thoughts, feelings and behaviours with the goal of getting them to the treatment they so badly need.
A formal intervention usually involves several people preparing themselves, approaching a person involved in self-destructive behaviours with an interventionist present, and talking to the person in a clear, respectful and even loving way about the behaviours in question with the immediate objectives of getting the person to listen and to accept help.
Moments like these are often turning points which constructively impact the person’s use of addictive behaviours and substances. An intervention also presents them with a plan of action. The overall objective of an intervention is to begin to relieve the suffering caused by self-destructive behaviours - the suffering of the person engaged in it and the suffering of family and friends.
Interventions are really gifts of love. They need to and deserve to be well done. We will provide a full service program from preparation of the Intervention Team, through Intervening and arranging treatment and follow up counselling.
Please feel free to call if you have questions or would like to arrange a preliminary appointment. Recommended reading: Love First: Jeff & Debra Jay
