It is our philosophy that when someone is suffering from anorexia or bulimia, wisdom compels us to take proactive measures to help them before something inevitably worse happens.
Eating Disorder Intervention Services assists friends, families, co-workers and employers with the help and support needed to effectively get a person of concern into treatment. We specialize in staging eating disorder, along with drug addiction, alcohol and mental illness interventions. The techniques we’ve developed have improved current intervention methods used throughout the industry today. Our evidenced-based model has significantly reduced further damage from occurring to already strained relationships, while substantially increasing the odds of getting those suffering from life-threatening conditions successfully into treatment.
If someone you care about is telling you no, I won’t go to treatment, I don’t need help, the problem isn’t that bad – or acknowledges they need help, but doesn’t follow up on getting it – you are in the right place. Without competent assistance, dealing with destructive behaviors can leave families discouraged or convinced that nothing can be done. Fortunately, these are the exact type of difficulties we are trained to deal with when encountering addiction and mental illness. In fact, every family seeking our assistance has told us they were met with either resistance, excuses, denial or minimization when they approached their loved one with getting help. Meanwhile, more than 98% of these same families were later told by their loved one, “okay, I’m willing to go to treatment” after allowing us to facilitate their intervention.
By focusing our attention on interrupting the powerful hold taking place within the limbic system (complex area of the brain that supports a variety of functions; including emotion, behavior, motivation and long-term memory), we specifically address what’s preventing someone from accepting professional care. Our experienced Intervention Specialists are adept at pinpointing the blocks, breaking through denial and systematically dealing with the irrational thinking that affects a person’s decision making abilities.
When a person’s thoughts and decision making abilities are impaired, wisdom compels us to take proactive measures – despite their resistance or implausible excuses about receiving help. The harm being caused to their brain’s structure, along with other risk-factors may one day have irreparable repercussions, so doing nothing is not the answer.
We know from our own personal accounts how distressing it is for families to watch their loved one struggle with addiction and/or a mental disorder. We also know how debilitating it is to be the one consumed by a chronic illness. This insightful vantage point has allowed us to truly understand the pain, suffering and desperation each side undergoes. It is also why we maintain training standards above occupational requirements and our success rate exceeds our peers.
Prior to staging an intervention, we meet with the intervention participants and provide them with clear instructions on what to say and do. Any foreseeable errors or distractions are carefully examined during this pre-intervention or dress rehearsal meeting. After our strategy is formulated, we then meet with your loved one and present them with a dignified solution to treating their medical condition.
In our initial phone interview, we will discuss relevant issues in order to do a thorough evaluation. Once a comprehensive profile is factored in, a strategy will be developed that is tailored around your loved one’s particular situation. Cost, logistics, time frame and any other questions or concerns you have will also be answered.
Crisis situations are extremely stressful for the inflicted individual and those closest to them. If someone you care about needs help, take the next step… Move forward – because without change – it will not get better.
