An act of love that may save a life.
It is painful to watch alcoholism or drug addiction destroy a loved one's life. It is even more painful when they don’t want to change. Most often, they are paralyzed by their addiction and unable to ask for help. That’s the time when an intervention may save their life. However, it can be quite risky to try to perform an intervention on your own. Minor details, like bad timing, can result in pushing the loved one away, rather then pointing them towards the path of recovery.
This is where the Center for Recovering Families comes into play as a leading source of Intervention Services in Houston. Call us now at 713.914.0556 or contact us directly to speak to one of our call center counselors and see whether an Intervention is your right course of action.
How does it work?
We can help you carefully plan and conduct an Intervention. Family and friends are brought together as a group to convince the loved one to seek treatment for their alcoholism or substance abuse. Those participating in the Intervention are people whom the addict or alcoholic loves, respects, or trusts. Ultimately, an Intervention is an act of love and works best coming from a place of care and concern.
The Center for Recovering Families Intervention Program uses Certified ARISE Interventionists who are trained in the evidence-based, best-practice ARISE model of Intervention.
The ARISE Intervention invites the addicted individual to join the process right from the beginning with no surprises, no secrets, no coercion, and absolute respect and love. A support system is mobilized to form a committed Intervention Network to motivate the addicted individual into treatment.
The Intervention has three levels that cease at the first level that works:
* Level 1 “The First Call”, starts when a Concerned Other calls a Certified ARISE Interventionist for a free phone consultation, and is coached to mobilize the support network to motivate your loved one to attend the ARISE First Meeting of the Intervention Network. 56% of addicted individuals enter treatment at Level 1.
* Level 2 “Strength in Numbers” begins if the addicted individual has not accepted help in Level 1. The Intervention Network acts as a Family Board of Directors; no one deals one-on-one with the addicted individual. By the end of two to five Intervention Network meetings, 80% of addicted individuals have entered treatment.
* Level 3 “The Formal ARISE Intervention” is held if treatment acceptance has not occurred during Level 2. This level is rarely needed but almost invariably results in treatment entry because the troubled individual is well prepared for this outcome. At this meeting serious consequences are put in place if the addicted individual fails to accept help. By this point, 83% of addicted individuals have said yes to help.
