Alcohol & Drug Intervention Specialist for Families

Seeking help for addiction

Many families feel overwhelmed by the impact of addiction in their lives and struggle with the decision to seek professional help.  However, with the help of an intervention specialist, the burden on the family is lifted and the chances for success recovery increase.  Without help from a trained professional, families face a number of obstacles that prevent the execution of a successful intervention on their own. With help from an experienced  intervention specialist it is possible to find hope and improve quality of life.


What does an Intervention Specialist do?

An interventionist develops a plan. Confronting an addict without a plan is overwhelming and often unsuccessful for friends and family alone. An interventionist lifts the burden by educating and training the group prior to the intervention. With an interventionist, both the loved ones of an addict and the addict are addressed to lead a successful, meaningful intervention. Interventionists provide support and guidance before the gathering and facilitate the intervention itself. They also assist with follow-up and aftercare.

An intervention specialist will:

  • Asses the nature of the addict’s dependency and circumstances
  • Determine the individuals most influential in the addict’s life
  • Plan strategies for an effective intervention
  • Provide resources for treatment and after-care

What is an Intervention Specialist?

An intervention specialist is a trained professional in the field of addiction and family systems. Interventionists help identify people in an addict’s life that can be most influential in a recovery team. The team is usually composed of family, friends and co-workers that can help an individual accept and receive treatment.
