The key to a successful Intervention is preparation, planning and professional experience.
Addiction is a life threatening disease
Early identification, diagnosis and treatment are essential in any chronic life threatening disease. The disease of addiction is both chronic and life threatening for individuals and families. A drug intervention raises the client’s “bottom” and establishes healthy boundaries for families, loved ones and even employers to live by. You no longer have to live by the chaos and destruction of active addiction. Allowing for the disease to progress without interruption is destructive not only to the individual, but to be the loved ones and community around them.
An important and invaluable part of the intervention process is where to receive treatment and services once the intervention is complete. Having the knowledge of treatment providers across the country that can address the unique needs of each individual is essential. The executive team at Hired Power has been working with treatment professionals nationally for over twenty years. Our team has been “on the ground” with close to six hundred different treatment programs; meeting the clinicians, staff and evaluating the over all environments.
Why work with a professional?
The role of the interventionist is to work with family and friends to create and establish an effective plan of action. It is also the professional’s role to help determine, with those involved, the right approach in each situation. Working with a professional, as opposed to going at it alone, provides the family with an independent advocate and a well-conceived, long-term action plan. Many good intentions to intervene have gone awry as soon as a family sits down together to confront the situation.
A professional interventionist will objectively guide the intervention process. By establishing a safe and loving environment in which there is the opportunity for open lines of communication, the desired outcome is more likely achieved. A professional Interventionist will direct, intervene, support, and challenge underlying motives, agendas, or manipulations.
Hired Power Interventionists are a team of professionals made up of Nationally Board Registered Interventionists, Certified Alcohol & Drug Counselors (CADC) and participating Members of the Association of Intervention Specialists .
