An intervention is an orchestrated effort, designed by family, friends, colleagues to influence a person’s decision to seek treatment for alcoholism, drug addiction, a psychological crisis, or other maladaptive behavior needing professional help. Interventions have been used to help individuals with: alcohol and drug problems, eating disorders, gambling, sex addiction, self-harm and other psychological crises. At Providence Treatment, we work with you to construct the intervention with the Professional in a supportive, empathic way for all involved. Once the person agrees to accept treatment for their situation, we will follow them in the treatment center and even post-discharge, to ensure they are connected to quality providers and developing a sustainable recovery program.
We provide this service for individuals coming to our treatment center and other treatment centers as well. We are committed to your recovery and will make an appropriate referral to an inpatient or outpatient program. We also work with families in need of helping loved ones receive services from quality psychiatric facilities and programs focused on disordered eating. It is important in this critical stage that you find the best program once the client agrees to enter treatment.
We only work with an invitational model of intervention. That means there are no “surprises” for the client. They are invited to a meeting with loved ones, work colleagues, family, etc. to present how their behavior has impacted each person in the intervention session. At the end of the session, the client is invited to enter treatment in whatever facility would best assist them. We connect them with the treatment program and remain supportive to client and family throughout the treatment process.
The professional usually feels “in charge” of their lives even when it is falling apart. An intervention with a Professional can be both challenging and rewarding. Once the person understands the benefits of treatment and the consequences of rejecting treatment at the time of the intervention, they usually make the right decision to at least attend an assessment program for Professionals.
