Is substance-use or alcohol and drug addiction having a detrimental affect on your family? If it is our alcohol and drug addiction intervention programs help solve these problems, and here’s how they work.

We know all too well how substance-use or alcohol and drug addiction can spiral out of control and leave a family confused and frustrated. We believe bringing in professional help to provide the needed support in this process of healing is the right idea. The intervention professional you choose to help you at this time is going to make a big difference.

There are 2 basic types of intervention approaches, Confrontational and Non-Confrontational. Most intervention professionals will use a confrontational approach, and this confrontational approach may be appropriate in extreme circumstances, especially when someone’s life is in serious risk due to their substance use, but for a lot of individuals the confrontational approach just doesn’t work. Therefore, you might get the individual into treatment, but once they are there, they’re angry and bitter and don’t engage because of the way they’ve been forced into participating, so the treatment process ends up being unsuccessful.

Our non-confrontational approach is based in Community Reinforcement and Family Training, or CRAFT. This non-confrontational approach has the best success in getting people into treatment, and allowing them to participate in a program with a much needed level of willingness and acceptance. Please note, non-confrontational doesn’t mean we take a passive approach in addressing the substance use, it mean how we address it is more likely to produce the results we want, and that is your loved one getting treatment for addiction.

The CRAFT process is beneficial in many ways because it educates the family on how to interact with the addicted individual now and in the future. Risk of substance use is something that an addicted individual has to deal with for the rest of their lives, and so will the family. The CRAFT training will empower the family to start helping now and in the years to come.

Often times a combination of intervention approaches is required, because no intervention is the same, and each one requires a unique and specifically tailored approach to the circumstances of that individual and family. Our skills, training and many years of experience allow us to customize the most effective way to guide the individual to accepting help, and move everyone towards healing and wellness.

Addiction is a powerful physical and psychological force that without the proper help will continue to progress and cause devastating consequence for everyone in contact with it. Sourcing the best addiction treatment option can be a very complex task, but we help make this a much less challenging endeavor. We will provide the best treatment option for your loved one, taking into consideration all of the needs of the addicted individual and the family.
From start to finish we will be there to guide you through the entire process. You are not alone there is help available so call now and let us help bring balance back into your life.

ALCOHOL & DRUG ADDICTION INTERVENTIONS

This assertive act of love, compassion and guidance leads the addicted person to accept the help offered and embrace the path of drug addiction treatment and ultimately a life of recovery, while at the same time restoring the balance and stability in the family.

I want to leave feedback from our experience with Jeffery Norell and Pacific Interventions, who helped us out of a potentially bleak outcome.

Up until last year, my stepson was heading down a road of addiction that was very quickly hurtling toward self-destruction. We had months of worry and stress and trying to figure out what to do. Finally, my husband Peter

Client Testimonials
So often when you are immersed in the turmoil of addiction of a loved one, you cannot see a way out nor when looking in to their life, you cannot make sense of it. Even the thought of an “outside force” such as a professional interventionist, having an influence seems like a waste of time.  You think, my addicted person will never sit still through an intervention, let alone take the help that is being offered afterward.   The worry that an ultimatum has to come with the intervention is heartbreaking, will the addicted person hate us forever? This is how my wife and I were feeling. I spoke to one professional and she told me “don’t try an intervention, it just won’t work”!  I was
