It’s painful to watch our loved ones struggle
It would be easy to believe that the purpose of an intervention is to help the person who struggles with an alcohol or substance use disorder, but that’s not the entire story. The goal of a successful intervention involve helping the identified loved one find treatment and an opportunity to recover their life in a meaningful way, but it is also about helping the family escape the enmeshment and painful codependent cycle.
We conduct interventions utilizing an “invitational style” (BreakFree Intervention) that involves working with the family members to plan a process of information gathering, family meetings and ultimate invitation of the identified loved one to come participate in a conversation about change and the consequences of staying stuck.
We work with the family as well as post-intervention followups with both family and identified loved one.
