To give you a better idea of what to expect when working with interventionists from ADT, Let’s take a look at what a sample intervention process may look like.

Professional Intervention Process

While every intervention is customized for the individual(s) involved, there are hallmark steps that our clinical interventionists take in ensuring success. Here is a sample professional intervention process:

  • Step 1: Background Assessment – The ADT team will first gather relevant background information on the situation, including records or statements from referring professionals, clinical providers, employers, advisors and family/support team members.
  • Step 2: Establishing Intervention Protocol – With a full understanding of the client’s situation, we can generate an initial proposal for the specific intervention protocol, including the type of intervention recommended (invitation vs. surprise), and who will be on the intervention team.
  • Step 3: Preparatory Discussions with Affected Parties – This includes family members, friends, employers and/or advisors to determine points of leverage and establish healthy boundaries should the individual declines support.
  • Step 4: Identifying Treatment Services Offered – Selecting appropriate facility for inpatient treatment, rehabilitation, or outpatient care and determining admission logistics for chosen facility. Establishing follow-up steps regardless of intervention outcome.
  • Step 5: Pre-Intervention Planning and Logistics – Determining will participate in the intervention and how, who will be invited, guidance for writing an intervention letter, if desired
  • Step 6: Intervention Rehearsal
  • Step 7: Intervention
  • Step 8: Follow-up Services –This may include transportation, family coaching, case management or sober companion services.
    Our professional intervention teams in Philadelphia are here for you throughout every step of the intervention process. While an intervention can be a powerful first step to recovery, it’s important to remember that the individual for whom the intervention is held is not guaranteed to accept the help or change immediately. We help prepare for all outcomes and offer full support with ongoing, long-term services such as family, advisor and employer services to support all who are affected by an individual’s substance abuse with drug and alcohol.

Why Choose Addiction Treatment Group

Here are a few of our recent testimonials as to why choose Addiction Treatment Group to help you and your family members getting help for a loved one with drug and alcohol abuse.

Cannot say enough about the impact Jim Reidy had on our families lives during the darkest moments of our son’s addiction. We were at a loss as to what to think or do and he stepped in and educated and guided us through every step of the processes. He was able to connect to each of our family members and our son’s friends in a compassionate, understanding, and genuine way. He prepared us for intervention day and our son felt the love and suppor and accepted the gift of treatment we offered. We entrusted our son in his care for transport to the treatment center and he went above and beyond prviding updates and pictures every step of the way to ease our minds. He was 100% focused on a successful outcome and delivered that promise to our family. He is our angel on earth and we are forever grateful to the role he played in healing our family.

When the United States needs to get the job done to kill bad guys, they call in the US Marine Corps. When a family needs help getting their loved one to a drug and alcohol treatment center, they call James Reidy of Addiction Treatment Group. I know that my review started off rather bold or harsh, but that’s the reality. We tried for months to convince our son that he had a problem with drugs and alcohol. He eventually came around and agreed with us. Our challenge was that our son wanted to do it his way. Well, his approach wasn’t working. He began to drink harder, smoking more weed to sleep, then came the talk of. “Not wanting to be one this earth any longer.” He was at “rock bottom.” We just didn’t know where to turn. After a few rough nights of trying to ensure that he wasn’t going to harm himself, we reached out to Family First Intervention. They, in turn, brought out the “big guns” from Philly, James Reidy. Jim has a very tender side when required, but he certainly knows how to lay down the law. Addiction is insidious and the enemy of all family cohesion. If one wants to slay this enemy, I suggest calling Jimmy Reidy.
