The intervention program is mainly for families having trouble convincing their loved one they have a problem that needs to be fixed with treatment.
The intervention program focuses on providing information about treatment to an individual struggling, while extending support to their family. During an intervention, two interventionists are present while the family confronts their loved one. The interventionists consist of an admissions coordinator and an therapist; they are there to provide information, support, a professional opinion, and a helping hand. The interventionists explain how treatment works in a detailed manner; answering any questions anyone may have. The focus and “point” of an intervention is getting a loved one to accept they have a problem while establishing a desire for recovery.
