-Family & Young People Interventions-
Whether we use an ARISE® Method of Intervention, Change Method. or Family Systemic , we will work with the family to fit the right type of help for the reluctant Loved One. Many times mental helath issues complicate the Loved One's desire to get help. Many times the Loved One has had a bad experience in treatment or has had been to multiple treatment programs and nothing seems to have worked. However, underlying all individuals' resitstance to treatment is FEAR. Fear of living without their "best friend," fear of detox, fear of the wreckage of their past, fear of looking at themselved and discovering who they really are. Our mission is to excite and inspire your Loved Ones to get out of their comfort zone - the zone of frozen fear and pain - and reach for their true potential. Our results are guaranteed. Not only does the Loved One heal and get better, but so do all the family members that participate in the intervention and treatment plan.
-Older Adult Interventions-
We have unique experience in dealing with older adults – people over 50 years old – and getting them the help that they need with their special and specific needs. We have conducted interventions for individuals in their early 60’s to their late 70’s and a few in their 80s. Older adults have unique physical, mental and emotional needs. Whether the problem is alcohol, prescription abuse, or some other behavior, older adults have many complicating issues. The right treatment program that can identify and address the physical issues as well as the addiction and mental health issues is critical. Fear of change is amplified for these people but interventions for older adults are usually more successful than for younger adults and other populations. Interventions for people over 60 are frankly my favorite interventions because these individuals are incredibly responsive and eternally grateful that their family and friends cared so much for them to intervene and help them recover. Specific treatment programs for older adults and seniors are listed in the Recommended Treatment Program section.
Often the Professional has the most difficulty in recognizing that their substance abuse or mental health issues have been clear to all but him or her. Often they have become successful by “taking control” of the challenges and handling their challenges themselves. Nevertheless, many an executive, doctor, lawyer, minister, teacher, and computer programmer has drunk himself to death or killed herself by accidental overdose. Professionals have a difficult time to let go. However, professionals have the ability to respond to like-minded people and often see that reasonableness and rationality can work. They are also eager to restore their careers and their reputations. Professionals can be highly motivated to change with the right circumstances. Specific professional treatment programs are listed in the Recommended Treatment Program section.
