When family members worry about someone they love, they want to know how to help. Furthermore, when addiction is the problem, the family often feels at a loss for what to do. For this reason, we offer a solution to help everyone succeed. Thus, an addiction interventionist from Ambrosia Treatment Centers gets to know the family and how substance abuse impacts them.
Fortunately, we can help with mental health disorders. We guide the majority of our clients into treatment within just a few weeks or months. In short, we help them change their lives and begin to heal. Then, the whole family can move forward in pursuit of their loved one’s recovery goals together.
What is an Addiction Interventionist?
Many may have heard of intervention for someone who struggles with an addiction to drugs or alcohol. As well, this service usually involves a visit with family. All in all, the goal is to get a loved one into treatment. Then, the service ends, regardless of the outcome.
Our addiction interventionists go beyond this process. For starters, we step in when all else fails. On the other hand, for others, we provide help before the family exhausts themselves with several intervention attempts. Then, we stick with the family for 6 months.
In addition, our multiple services help keep the focus on recovery. What is more, we help keep on top of things after the individual goes into treatment. Because of this, their continuing care has the best chance for success.
Services offered include not just personalized case management. In fact, we can provide safe transportation to treatment. Along with that, we offer coaching, companionship, and monitoring of progress made.
Our interventionists are certified in their field. They attend comprehensive workshops that teach them about addiction and how it impacts individuals and their families. In addition, they learn relevant research and how to maintain the professional ethics of this field. They serve internships before becoming certified. As a result, they possess great knowledge of how to help those who need it the most.
How Does Addiction Intervention Work?
First, we begin with a phone call to discuss the details of the person who is addicted. Second, we get to know the history of their addiction. We also talk about any previous attempts at getting sober. Third, we schedule a family meeting. These meetings will be ongoing for 6 months.
Then, we invite the person with the addiction to join the process. We do not surprise or try to force them. Instead, we make them aware of what’s going on. As a result, they feel respected. They feel like their loved ones are working with them, and not against them.
We invite the person with the addiction to attend each meeting. In addition, we offer ongoing options for them to enter treatment. The addiction interventionist works with multiple people. For example, the first is with the client. Then, the second is their family.
Addiction and mental disorders do not happen in a vacuum. In fact, everyone around the loved one suffers. This is why our approach includes the whole family. As a result, everyone can begin to heal.
We teach the family that everyone’s feelings and experiences are valid. We teach the family new ways to talk with each other. All in all, we instill hope, motivation, and new coping skills. Thus, this makes everyone stronger.
We work with the treatment center the loved one enters. Therefore, all of this helps ensure they complete their treatment program. As a result, this, in turn, helps increase the chances the person will avoid relapse.
Our interventionists bring years of experience to the table. Additionally, they train to offer things like crisis intervention, person-centered intervention, and 12-Step program-centered assistance. Furthermore, the empathy and caring nature of each professional shines through. Last, we understand the importance of confidentiality, hence our services remain private to protect those we serve.

Does Intervention Help After a Person Begins Treatment?
Intervention doesn’t end the moment someone agrees to get help for their addiction or mental disorder. Instead, our program continues to help set the person up for lifelong success. What is more, even those in treatment sometimes find they need to revise their program. In turn, we assist in setting goals. From there, we can monitor how they are met.
Our addiction interventionists help the person once they leave treatment. By this, we mean we help them identify triggers that can cause a relapse. Then, we guide them in cutting out toxic relationships. This helps them enjoy being around people who support their recovery.
Furthermore, we strongly encourage attending self-help meetings. These include groups like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. What is more, we help the person focus on getting healthy in other ways. For example, these ways include eating healthy and regular exercise. We also help them take care of their mental health.
We also continue to keep the family in focus after the loved one begins treatment. To add, we help them develop and commit to recovery strategies for the entire family unit. This includes encouraging everyone to attend family therapy and support groups. Then, when each family member works on themselves, the entire unit triumphs.
Can Addiction Intervention Help Busy Executives?
Families aren’t the only ones who can benefit from using an addiction intervention. In fact, we also offer help for executives who need a push to get into treatment. We can tailor a program that fits a company’s business model.
For example, we work with the client’s colleagues. This helps create a healthy, environment of support in the workplace. As a result, this makes it easier for the person to enter treatment. Not only that, but they will walk back into a loving, helpful workplace when they graduate from treatment.
