Does someone you care about have a problem with alcohol or other drugs? Getting someone help who doesn’t want help is what intervention is all about. During the intervention process, family members, friends, and co-workers share clear, factual information about the effect the person’s substance abuse has on those who care about him/her. The hope is for the individual with the problem to accept that their behavior shows signs of addiction and be motivated to get the help they need.
The most successful interventions take place when the team members, family, friends and co workers, have been well prepared by an intervention professional. The Council has trained, professional Interventionists who have successfully completed an extensive training program, and must abide by a code of ethics and specific protocols, to guide the process of intervention.
