Can intervention be successful?
Absolutely. When done with a person who is trained and successfully experienced as an interventionist, over 90% of people make a commitment to get help.
Can intervention fail?
Yes. But, as stated above, most interventions are successful. In some cases, a person may refuse help at the time of the intervention, but as a result of the intervention, come back and ask for help later.
Who gets involved in doing an intervention?
We know that most successful interventions are professionally directed. The interventionist will help you to determine who should be invited to participate in the intervention — parents, spouses, siblings, friends, co-workers, etc. Making sure that the right people are involved is very important to the success of the intervention.
Where do you begin?
Intervention may not be necessary or appropriate for all families or all circumstances. However, if you feel an intervention could be helpful, you should contact ARR to find out what may be best for you or your family.
