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 three hundred different treatment programs; meeting the clinicians, staff and evaluating the over all environment.

Nanette Zumwalt is a Nationally Board Registered Interventionist, level II and a Certified Alcohol & Drug Counselor (CADC) A participating Member of the Association of Intervention Specialists , she is trained and practices the following intervention models:

  • The ARISE Intervention Model – A Relational Intervention Sequence for Engagement. The ARISE Intervention Model involves family members in a collaborative intervention process that reduces guilt and blame and allows the family, interventionist, and dependent person to stay focused on helping the addict get into treatment.
  • Stority Model
  • Johnson Model – The JOHNSON Intervention Model raises the bottom for an addict, which is often death, by compassionately confronting the addict with the consequences of their addiction. The bottom is raised by precipitating a crisis in the addict’s life that is not threatening, damaging, or fatal and compels them into treatment.
  • Systemic Family Invitational Model – The SYSTEMIC Intervention Model is an alternative to traditional confrontational intervention models because family, friends, and colleagues form a team to work with the dependent person and address the issues in a loving and respectful manner. It is a successful system precisely because the focus is on patient, but firm, coaching instead of negative confrontation.

Early and effective intervention concerning alcohol/drug abuse and addiction related issues will have a profound effect on both the situation and the individuals involved.

Family Interventions

The most loving compassionate service family and friends can provide for someone struggling with the disease of addiction.

Anytime someone needs help but refuses to accept it, a family intervention is appropriate. A family intervention is appropriate for people engaged in any self- destructive behavior such as:

  • drinking too much: alcohol abuse, alcohol addiction
  • drug use, drug abuse, drug addiction
  • eating disorders: anorexia, bulimia, over eating
  • gambling addiction, sex addiction
  • computer addiction, internet addiction
  • failure in school, work

Intervention is the most supportive, powerful and successful way to attain help for a loved one. A family intervention can be done with love and respect in a non-confrontational, non-judgmental approach.

Executive Interventions

If you have an employee or colleague struggling with an alcohol, drug abuse, or gambling issues an executive intervention is appropriate. Workplace addictions can seriously undermine performance, productivity and ultimately the business environment. An executive intervention will address issues such as:

  • absenteeism
  • loss of productivity, poor performance
  • deteriorating relationships with coworkers and clients
  • affects to the organization and bottom line

If the professional is a lawyer, doctor, dentist or other licensed professional these issues can affect the future of their career. What if they are a senior level executive responsible for multi- million dollar deals, investments or other people’s future? Again interventions approached with dignity and respect can have both a profound and positive effect on the situation and the individuals involved.

Adolescent Intervention and Placement Services

The effective treatment of adolescents with substance abuse and behavioral disorders requires an approach that includes the attention to family, school and social aspects of the young person’s life. An intervention for an adolescent or young adult is appropriate when the family is facing issues of

  • drinking too much: alcohol abuse, alcohol addiction
  • drug use, drug abuse, drug addiction
  • eating disorders: anorexia, bulimia, over eating
  • gambling addiction,
  • sexually acting out, sexually at risk behaviors
  • computer addiction, internet addiction
