Interventions using the Systemic Family Intervention Approach are based upon traditional intervention tactics with some modifications. All intervention meetings are held with a certified interventionist and include the alcoholic or drug addict in the meetings.
These meetings are a two-way street – the family and the addict will openly discuss the effects of the addiction and everyone (hopefully) will agree to attend some form of counseling together both during and after the addict’s rehab.
The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD) States that when a trained interventionist is utilized, more than 90% of addicts will take the commitment to seek professional help. Every addict and family is unique and has unique issues; a certified interventionist will use recognized intervention methods that will be structured to be effective for the current situation.
