The first point in the addiction recovery process is that moment when your loved one admits there is a problem, and is ready and willing to go to treatment. Intervention makes it happen.
Drug & Alcohol Intervention Services
Our drug and alcohol intervention services includes meeting with the family in person, if you are in Northern California, or on the phone if it’s more convenient. The goal is to discuss the IP’s (indicated patient) personal situation and treatment needs.
The beginning process consists of a series of personal questions in depth to better understand what will be needed to approach the IP.
Examples of questions we will discuss include:
- Where is the addict living?
- Are they working?
- What substances do they consume?
- How long have they been using?
- How much money do they spend?
- Are they suicidal?
- Do they have legal matters?
Once the interventionist has gathered enough knowledge on the individual’s background, they will plan with the family or loved ones regarding when to proceed with the actual intervention. Once the intervention date and time is set, the interventionist will arrange family transportation to arrive at the intervention location. The intervention will take place where the family feels is best for their loved one. This may be at the family home, a park, or even a mocked-up event.
The interventionist will help the family determine who is best to participate in the intervention. Prior to intervening, the family and friends of the IP will meet with interventionist to go over how the intervention is going to play out. During the intervention, the interventionist will guide the family through the process.
Once the individual agrees to treatment, and the family has agreed upon the Bright Future Recovery, the interventionist will accompany the IP either by vehicle or airplane to our Northern California detox facility. The interventionist will ascertain that the IP has arrived safely. The interventionist will continue to be available via phone, for any follow-up questions, concerns and advice the family and loved ones may have post-intervention.
Bright Future Recovery also offers additional web interventions that may be needed by the IP during their rehabilitation program.
