HOW TO FIND THE RIGHT INTERVENTIONIST FOR YOU


Interventions save lives and help families heal and move forward. Substance Use Disorder and mental health issues are complex and the process for finding the right help can be very complicated. In times of crisis, family members often struggle navigating this complex process to determine what the best plan is and knowing how to locate the appropriate treatment match on their own. If you have made attempts in the past and have not been successful in helping your loved one, then now is the time to hire a Certified Interventionist.


Certified Interventionist:

A Certified Interventionist is an expert on addiction and/or other mental health issues. It is important to look for an interventionist's credentials for certification, such as Certified Arise Interventionist "CAI" or Certified Intervention Professional "CIP". Certified Interventionists are trained and skilled in family systems and successful intervention techniques. The interventionist supports, educates, provides guidance, direction, and training, as well as the facilitation of the intervention and aftercare services.


Clinical Background / Degrees:

Interventionists who are also mental health counselors, such as an Licensed Professional Counselor or LPC, spend years in school, studying both addiction and psychology. This Clinical experience can be essential when working with complex situations and in order to recommend the most appropriate treatment facility for your loved ones specific needs.


When hiring an Interventionist, here are some things to look for:

  • Certified Interventionist, such as CAI or CIP

  • Clinical License or Credentials

  • Accredited College/University Degrees

  • Academic background, training, and/or experience background

  • Experience treating addiction, mental health, trauma and families

  • Experience working with complex clients and families suffering from Substance Use Disorder, Trauma, and Mental Health issues.

  • Ethical code: do they or have they ever taken kickbacks for treatment placement.
