  • Interventions

    The nature of drug and alcohol dependence is that the last person to realize the extent of damage to themselves and others is the substance abuser.

     

    As a result it is often necessary for loved ones and employers to stage an intervention in order to get the individual the treatment they need.

     

    A professional intervention is a meeting orchestrated and facilitated by an experienced addictions professional in which the user is confronted and offered concrete consequences if they do not immediately enter treatment. Interventions are serious business and should not be facilitated by mental health professionals who are not credentialed as addictions specialists or by addictions specialists who have not facilitated interventions in the past. Improperly conducted interventions can be traumatic for all involved and result in future attempts to get the individual into treatment to backfire.

     

    Properly facilitated interventions can be highly effective although no reputable addictions professional will guarantee results due to the lability of addicts and alcoholics.

     

    Intervention Steps:

     

    1) A core person in the addict's life contacts the addictions specialist and a preliminary assessment is made.

    The cost of the initial evaluation is $125.00

     

    The actual Intervention:

     

    2) Other support people are identified and engaged in the process.

    3) A meeting of core support people is held in which they are educated and prepared by the addictions specialist. This is generally done in person but as circumstances allow may be conducted remotely.

    4) The addict is invited to a setting where the support people and addictions counselor are waiting.

    5) The intervention is conducted and an ultimatum of treatment delivered. Clear consequences of failing to receive treatment are stated.

    6) The individual enters treatment with ongoing communication between the addictions counselor and support people.

     

    Total Cost: $1000.00 paid in advance.

  • Outpatient Program

    When inpatient isn't an option

     

    Sometimes it is impossible to leave work or family responsibilities for 30 days or more in order to get clean and sober. It also may not be feasible for you to pay nearly $30,000 for treatment. If you having trouble quitting on your own intensive outpatient may be the solution. A treatment plan that is customized for your specific needs will be designed and may include some or all of the following:

     

    Multiple individual sessions per week. One in person and others via skype or phone.

    • Group counseling
    • Trauma techniques including EMDR, hypnotherapy, relaxation techniques and meditation training
    • Urinanalysis to provide accountability Introduction and participation in 12-step programming
    • Therapeutic Journaling
    • Peer Support Assignment
    • Couple and family therapy
    • Codependence education and support for loved ones
