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 alcohol abuse, drug addiction, mental health disorders and behavioral concerns.
Our experienced Intervention Specialists provide knowledgable support and guidance every step of the way. The techniques we’ve developed have improved current intervention methods used throughout the industry today. Our evidenced-based model has significantly reduce further damage from occurring to already strained relationships, while substantially increasing the odds of getting those suffering from alcoholism, drug addiction and other related co occurring disorders successfully into a treatment setting.
In fact, every family that has sought our assistance has told us they were either met with resistance, excuses, denial or minimization when they approached their loved one with getting help. Meanwhile, almost every one of these same families were later told by their loved one, “okay, I’m willing to go to treatment” after allowing us to stage and facilitate their loved one’s 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 alcoholism, drug 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.
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.
Finding the right intervention specialist is the most important first step to ensuring the person you care about receives proper health care. Families, friends, employers colleagues and co-workers are encouraged to reach out to us. Trying to manage destructive behaviors and/or mental health related conditions without professional assistance can potentially be fatal. Addiction and mental health disorders are complex, and often pose challenges when it comes to the person accepting help, being properly diagnosed and following treatment plans. Aligning yourself to a qualified professional who understands the serious nature of drug addictions and the mental health related components many sufferers experience is critical.
If someone you care about needs help, take the next step… Move forward – because without change – it will not get better.

Principles of Effective Pacific Palisades, California Mental Health Behavioral Health Treatment:
1. No single treatment is appropriate for all individuals. Matching treatment settings, interventions, and services to each individual’s particular problems and needs is critical to his or her ultimate success in returning to productive functioning in the family, workplace, and society.
2. Treatment needs to be readily available. Because individuals who are addicted to drugs may be uncertain about entering treatment, taking advantage of opportunities when they are ready for treatment is crucial. Potential treatment applicants can be lost if treatment is not immediately available or is not readily accessible.
3. Effective treatment attends to multiple needs of the individual, not just his or her drug use. To be effective, treatment must address the individual’s drug use and any associated medical, psychological, social, vocational, and legal problems.
4. An individual’s treatment and services plan must be assessed continually and modified as necessary to ensure that the plan meets the person’s changing needs. A patient may require varying combinations of services and treatment components during the course of treatment and recovery. In addition to counseling or psychotherapy, a patient at times may require medication, other medical services, family therapy, parenting instruction, vocational rehabilitation, and social and legal services. It is critical that the treatment approach be appropriate to the individual’s age, gender, ethnicity, and culture.
5. Remaining in treatment for an adequate period of time is critical for treatment effectiveness. The appropriate duration for an individual depends on his or her problems and needs. Research indicates that for most patients, the threshold of significant improvement is reached at about 3 months in treatment. After this threshold is reached, additional treatment can produce further progress toward recovery. Because people often leave treatment prematurely, programs should include strategies to engage and keep patients in treatment.
6. Counseling (individual and/or group) and other behavioral therapies are critical components of effective treatment for addiction. In therapy, patients address issues of motivation, build skills to resist drug use, replace drug-using activities with constructive and rewarding non-drug-using activities, and improve problem-solving abilities. Behavioral therapy also facilitates interpersonal relationships and the individual’s ability to function in the family and community.
7. Medications are an important element of treatment for many patients, especially when combined with counseling and other behavioral therapies. For patients with mental disorders, both behavioral treatments and medications can be critically important.
8. Addicted or drug-abusing individuals with coexisting mental disorders should have both disorders treated in an integrated way. Because addictive disorders and mental disorders often occur in the same individual, patients presenting for either condition should be assessed and treated for the co-occurrence of the other type of disorder.
9. Medical detoxification is only the first stage of addiction treatment and by itself does little to change long-term drug use. Medical detoxification safely manages the acute physical symptoms of withdrawal associated with stopping drug use. While detoxification alone is rarely sufficient to help addicts achieve long-term abstinence, for some individuals it is a strongly indicated precursor to effective drug addiction treatment.
10.Treatment does not need to be voluntary to be effective. Strong motivation can facilitate the treatment process. Sanctions or enticements in the family, employment setting, or criminal justice system can increase significantly both treatment entry and retention rates and the success of drug treatment interventions.
