An intervention is designed to help a loved one recognize and change self-destructive thoughts, feelings or behaviors.

The intent is to confront the person in a non-threatening way. It's an approach that focuses on helping the individual see the personal impact of their alcohol or other drug use as well as the impact on others.

Interventions can also help an addict’s family members and friends regain control of their lives. It is not only the addict who is suffering.

The recovery process is different for everyone person. As an ARISE® Interventionist, Mary Ann will work with your family to find the best solution to fit your unique situation.


Continuum of Care 

Getting an addicted loved one to enter a treatment plan is often not enough to end the cyclical nature of the chronic disease. Addiction Solutions 605 offers long-term care to aid in recovery. Continued family and professional involvement through treatment and into early recovery is essential to a successful recovery.

Continuum Care supports families before, during and after the intervention process. A long-term plan will be set up to give the addict the best chance of recovering.
