Interventionist

Tom interv iconWhat is an Interventionist?

The professional interventionist is an individual who helps identify the appropriate people in the addict’s life who will be most influential as part of the team that will enable this individual to accept treatment. The interventionist educates and trains the group as well as facilitates the intervention. Professional interventionists are able to assist in helping families, friends and corporate groups to intervene on such compulsive and destructive addictive behaviors as: alcohol, drug addiction, and other compulsive disorders. Transforming lives one intervention at a time!

 

What is Intervention?

An intervention is a deliberate process by which change is introduced into peoples’ thoughts,
feelings and behaviors. The overall objective of an intervention is to confront a person in a non-threatening way and allow them to see their self-destructive behavior, and how it affects themselves, family and friends. It usually involves several people who have prepared themselves to talk to a person who has been engaging in some sort of self-destructive behavior. In a clear and respectful way, they inform the person of factual information regarding his or her behavior and how it may have affected them. The immediate objective of an intervention is for the self-destructive person to listen and to accept help.

Sober Companion Service:
Sober companionship is a helpful resource during a client’s transition into and out of a treatment facility. In addition to the fear and uncertainty of venturing out of their comfort zone to enter a program, treatment-bound clients can often experience a change of heart regarding the idea of sobriety altogether. I will travel with your loved one to their treatment program, providing the emotional support they need to successfully enter their facility and embrace recovery. Although your loved one has agreed to enter treatment, they are still incredibly fragile and vulnerable during this early stage of their recovery. My sober companion services will give them the benefit of an experienced supporter and advocate to reinforce that they made the right decision, and facilitate an easy and comfortable transition into recovery.
