How to Use The Intervention Course

How to Use The Intervention Course

Considering doing an intervention on a loved one is fraught with emotion.  The desire or need to do an intervention always comes after (or during) a crisis.  If you are considering an intervention, think no further – your loved one needs help – and it has become your calling to step in and offer a lifeline.  The truth is that your loved one is probably desperate for help.

For you to be helpful, you have to learn a lot and learn it fast.  We have created resources to help educate you and lay out a path for you.  This course is broken down into 19 short videos and text to accompany each lesson.  By going through these videos, you will be preparing yourself to plan for a treatment center placement, addressing your loved one with compassion, and supporting long term change.

This video course is accompanied by the book, Navigating Recovery Ground School: 12 Lessons to Help Families Navigate Recovery‘ available on Amazon.

Addiction causes chaos, to navigate out of the chaos there needs to be a plan.   Families that take time to educate themselves on addiction, and follow a path, always have success at changing the current situation for the better.
