Addiction Interventionist Save Lives.

Additions are destructive.

Getting help from an addiction Interventionist will make a difference.

    Alcoholics will deny responsibility.

    People with addictions think they don’t have options.

    Addiction and Alcohol Abuse are Treatable.

    How does an addiction Interventionist save lives?


    An addition Interventionist has the training and experience you need to guide an alcoholic or person with substance abuse disorder to make better choices and possibly save their life. As an addiction Interventionist, they help you see through the addiction to the person you can help. They will help plan and execute an intervention with you. As an expert guide, the addiction Interventionist will know what to do to help the person with substance abuse disorder arrive at a recovery plan.


    Alcoholics and people with substance abuse disorder sometimes don’t realize how their different behaviors are affecting the people around them. The addiction may even be covering up a mental health issue that needs to be exposed. An addiction Interventionist will point you to any other professionals you might need to contact for additional diagnostics.


    An addiction Interventionist is highly trained and has the skills to plan, execute, and follow up after the intervention. When hiring an addition Interventionist, make sure they are qualified to handle this very emotional situation. They can defuse any situation should it get aggressive or is not going to well.


    Someone who does not have the experience and training will make serious mistakes. Please don’t put your lives in danger. Contact a professional addiction Interventionist. A free consolation is a time to ask these questions:


    • Ask for their qualifications

    • Ask about successes

    • Ask what was unsuccessful

    • Ask if they have associations with other professionals, doctors, or facilities

    • Ask what you need to bring the planning meeting

    • Do a thorough interview


    You need to know you’re in capable hands with the professional addiction Interventionist you are hiring. Ask lots of questions. Call later if you think of more issues. A professional Interventionist will welcome these questions. They want to change lives for the better.

    As trained professionals, Interventionists want to save lives.

    What is an intervention?


    An intervention is an event organized in a safe environment to help you talk to the addiction in hopes of finding the person within. Planning for an intervention is a fundamental process. An Interventionist has done this before and can share their expertise.


    Your participation will help the person with addictions understand the negative consequences the addiction is having on you. Expressing these feelings will illustrate to the person with additions, that bad behaviors and manipulation are impacting the people around them. That the person with additions does have options and should choose wisely, or suffer the negative consequences.


    An intervention is not to condemn, blame, or attack. It should be a loving and caring environment. The interventionist will help cool down hot tempers should they arise.

    Understanding the Intervention Process


    Stepping up to intervene


    Interventions do work and can boost the addicted person's chances to recover.  


    "According to the Association of Intervention Specialists, 80-90 percent of interventions are successful."1

    – Association of Intervention Specialist


    "When done with a person who is trained and successfully experienced as an interventionist, over 90% of people make a commitment to get help."2


    Talk to someone who has been there.


    Interventions illustrate to the person with additions that you care and are concerned. Now is the time to talk about the impact the addiction has had you. An intervention provides an encouraging and gentle way to move the addict through to a treatment option.


    Interventions can be challenging. Hiring a professional Interventionist to help is recommended. An Interventionist will tailor the process to your needs.


    Get Going. Change a Life. Do an Intervention.


    Don’t wait any longer. You know something needs to change. Call a family meeting to discuss an intervention. Talk to a professional Interventionist about the right way to go about making the plan and putting it into action.


    1. Making the plan before the intervention.


    For a positive outcome, a plan is necessary. The planning stage is a learning process for all involved. Questions need to be asked and answered. The first step will help everyone understand what will happen and when it will happen, along with what to expect and do next.


    The addiction has created unique dynamics within the family. An Interventionist will help sort out these behaviors creating a better outcome. New boundaries will need to be set to change any enabling behavior.


    Take notes and do your homework after the meeting. Get prepared for the next step, which is the intervention.


    2. The Intervention.


    The Interventionist will lead the intervention, following the plan. The Interventionist is relieving others to concentrate on their part by taking charge.


    An intervention, when conducted by a professional Interventionist, will benefit everyone and chances for a better outcome are more likely. Going it alone will bring poor results through anger, disrespect and sometimes violence.


    3. The Follow Up


    The Interventionist will follow up to see how everything is going afterward. Helping you plan for the next step and keep guiding you in a better direction if needed. Keep the Interventionist informed of any progress, positive or negative. If you have any feedback now is the time to share it.


    If the intervention doesn’t go well, don't give up hope. You may have planted the seed that the person with additions needed to hear. The person with additions may approach you later after considering what just happened. Now would be the time to bring up treatment options again. Show them how much you care and move them toward the possibilities from the intervention. Call the Interventionist and inform them what just happened. The Interventionist is there to help any way they can.


    In this difficult situation, a professional Interventionist will make a big difference.
