What is an intervention? 

An intervention is a strategically planned and executed action in which a positive change is applied to a person whose thoughts and behaviours have become detrimental to themselves and those around them.

the start of interventions

How and when did modern interventions come about? 

Most professionals who have studied interventions, or implemented them, tend to agree that  Vernon Johnson first defined the necessity for intervention techniques in the early 1960s. He thought the family could unite and convince an addictive drinker to accept help for his ailment.  Rev. Johnson, a pioneer in compassionate chemical dependency treatment wrote the 1973  milestone “I’ll Quit Tomorrow” as the blueprint for the various forms of interventions and their use then and today involving not only addictions to alcohol but also drugs, gambling, sex, self-abusive behaviour, eating disorders, violent rage, and more recently computers. 

The decades since Johnson’s studies have produced many variations on his themes and professionals now meet a wide range of environments and issues. Ground zero is no longer just  a personal and family dimension it extends to the workplace and involves the boardrooms of  Corporate America, the military, the media, all forms of celebrities from sports to movie and television stars, and even the medical profession has doctors and nurses surrounded by their addictions as a part of their daily job description. 

‘Executive Interventions’ are often instigated in companywide programs designed to define and solve problems with all workers and thus increase the strengths and resources of the worker and thus the corporation. 

Intervention as a common remedial action has increased simply as more and more people hear about its practical ability and its updated application to a wider range of addictive circumstances.  These occasions and circumstances have created a professional interventionist service industry  

working everywhere from the company boardroom to the darker societies of the inner city and everywhere in between. 

I’ve heard that you can’t help someone until they want help. Is this true?

No, it is not true. Most victims of behavioural disorders or addictions do not think they have any kind of problem at all. If you ask them if they have a problem or address them as an addict they will deny it. You might find the occasional partial admission: – “Everyone gets angry now and again”, “Everyone has a few too many drinks once in a while”, and “Most people experiment with drugs in their lifetime,” their life habits are no different than everyone else in their mind. Something has to happen in their lives to make them want to accept help. Intervention is the first step in a sequence of events that can mend their soul and change and restore their lives. 

Intervention sounds like ‘forced’ treatment. Does it work? 

It isn’t how someone gets into treatment so much as what happens once they are in treatment.  Intervention is more an enabling action directed towards treatment. Ultimately the final decision to enter the road to wellness is decided upon by the person with the problem(s). Speaking from  

experience we can help with decisions aimed to make all concerned feel comforted about the actions needed and the time necessary to make a person well again. 

What do I need to do, to find the right interventionist for my situation?

As with any service industry, the Professional Interventionist has a reputation built on experience. 

Education, a contemporary understanding of the wide range of today’s behavioural problems,  human compassion, and client and patient trust are all ingredients to your selection of the correct Interventionist. 

Your comfort level in understanding and trusting what you learn about this type of professional care provider is important as these qualifications and talents should be easily recognizable as what you need in assisting your loved ones with the care and treatment they need. Find out how long they have been in the business and what educational background, formal training, and working experience they have had since entering the field. Similar cases and how their plans were carried out should be volunteered as well as their outcome. Make sure they have had ample and recent experience with your type of circumstance. Feel content that your questions are answered fully and to your complete understanding. Find comfort and confidence that they have the knowledge, compassion, discipline, and strength to carry out what they define as the best route to facilitate the treatment of your loved one. Their experience will assist you in gauging the urgency of your situation, the path it should follow and the degree of safety it will entail. 

Why should I hire a professional interventionist? 

A professional interventionist not only knows how to construct and enable an intervention he/she also knows the best facility for rehabilitation relative to the patient’s condition and needs.  A professional knows how to get a candidate there effectively and safely. Recent experience in similar interventions is a valuable asset to the professional and thus the client. Constant research on clinics and facilities, knowing their success ratios and current availability for new patients is part of their service. As complex and stressful as these situations are you do not have to go through them alone. 

What typically happens during an intervention? 

The goal of an intervention is to get your loved one into treatment as soon as possible. The first step involves conducting a confidential meeting either in person, or over the phone with an individual’s concerned family members and/or loved ones to gain valuable insight into the individual’s unique circumstances, history of addiction, etc., assess whether an intervention is necessary, and the possible treatment options available. Appropriate treatment facilities are then contacted, and arrangements are made in advance, so that upon conclusion of the intervention the individual can be immediately escorted to the appropriate treatment facility. An individualized intervention plan is then developed and executed, upon which our highly experienced team confronts the individual, encourages the individual to seek treatment, and escorts the individual to the appropriate treatment facility. 

What happens after an intervention? 

After an intervention, our team will escort the individual into an appropriate drug or alcohol treatment facility in Saskatchewan or anywhere else in Canada. Where they can get the type of help they need to take the first step toward a happier, healthier life.

Are all interventions the same? 

Each person is unique. Therefore, every intervention is unique. Our team of professionals caters to each intervention to an individual’s unique circumstances. 

What is the goal of an intervention? 

The goal of an intervention is to encourage the patient to agree and accept help for their substance abuse issues or trauma.
