Addiction Intervention

Intervention Services Addiction Rehab Thousand Islands can help provide intervention services if your loved one is unwilling to get the help they need. Addiction intervention services are solely designed towards assisting the friends and family of an individual in need of help. Our interventionists will help you in planning, confronting, and moving forward with your loved one, to help them reach to a point where they are ready to seek help.


Why Are Interventions Necessary?

Those who are addicted tend to believe that they can overcome their addictive behavior with their own will and strength, when they decide that it’s time to end their addiction. However, most of the time this is nothing more than an unrealistic expectation. For many people, breaking an addiction can be nearly impossible, and they will continue to fall deeper into their addiction every time they fail to come out of it.

It is when a person is mentally and physically unable to end their addiction on their own that an intervention becomes crucial in saving his or her life.

But not every group is equipped in handling an intervention. Any intervention will be a very sensitive affair, and one wrong move can destroy any progress that might have been made. To ensure that an intervention goes as smoothly as possible, it is important to seek for the guidance of a professionally trained interventionist.


What Does an Interventionist Do?

The interventionist is trained to work with people from all walks of life. They work with any group who is seeking to confront their addicted friend, family member or loved one, whether they be spouses, sib lings, parents, adult children, friends, or co-workers who care for the individual.

The main goal of the interventionist is to relate with the individual and those who are seeking an intervention. As every case is unique, there is no set standard for how any intervention should be played out; rather, it is the interventionist’s job to create the smoothest and most seamless approach when planning and conducting the intervention.

What many don’t realize is that the role of the interventionist is not limited towards confronting the individual in need of help, but also in educating his or her loved ones in understanding the issue and circumstances completely, as well as the treatment methods after the intervention.

They create an environment that is optimally suited towards a productive and effective confrontation, and they understand how to defuse a situation wherein the individual may become defensive or violent. They act as the objective third-party that can keep the event on track and keep emotions steady, assisting both the individual and his or her loved ones in remembering their goals.


In short, the interventionist’s job can include:


  • Understanding the addiction, the problem, and the unique circumstances
  • Creating an analysis of it and strategizing the best way to tackle it
  • Guiding the loved ones towards an objective and educated understanding of the situation
  • Helping the individual and his or her loved ones after the intervention, directing them towards proper treatment and care


There are several types of interventions that your interventionist may choose to apply to your situation. These include:


  • The Johnson Model: The Johnson Model is the stereotypical intervention, involving the coming together of friends and family members towards creating a calm and loving environment for the individual. This is usually the go-to model when creating an intervention, but it doesn’t necessarily work for every case, as the addicted individual may become violent from the shame of being confronted by too many people


  • The Systemic Model: The Systemic Model is designed for those who are uncomfortable with confrontation and are at-risk of becoming violent or aggressive. This model of intervention can take several weeks or months, and breaks down the intervention into several small meetings with individual friends and family members, as well as the interventionist.


  • The ARISE Model: The ARISE Model, which stands for A Relational Intervention Sequence for Engagement, creates a more careful approach towards the standard intervention, by taking away the confrontational elements of surprise that may damage any possible progress. The ARISE Model comes in three stages, which involve contacting the trained interventionist, arranging several meetings between the interventionist, the addicted individual, and various loved ones, and then discussing the possible treatment methods with everyone involved. While a slower process, this can be more effective in more complicated cases.


As each case is unique, an interventionist may choose a different model or approach towards designing your intervention. Professional support is trained towards adapting to any situation in the goal of creating the best treatment for each individual.


Treatment After the Intervention

After a successful intervention, it should be the goal of everyone involved to secure professional support and treatment immediately. Without post-intervention support, there is great risk of your loved one falling into the addiction again, and repeating the cycle once more.

It is the interventionist’s goal to bring up the issue of rehabilitation and treatment before the intervention comes to a close. Once the individual agrees to enter a rehabilitation program, the interventionist should take them to our Intervention Services Canadian Addiction Rehab facility. Once there, the individual is guaranteed the best trained and professional support that he or she can receive.

Intervention Services Canadian Addiction Rehab will secure guide the addicted individual into returning to a life that is independent of the drug that has taken over their life. It can take weeks or months, but afterwards the individual will be released with the ability to function normally, ready to rebuild his or her personal, professional, and social life.

We understand that each case varies, and just like our personalized interventions, our professionals are trained towards creating personalized routines and approaches towards treating the addiction and helping your loved one get over the difficult withdrawal stage.
