The time for an Intervention is now.

You recognize your loved one has substance abuse issues, but confrontation seems incredibly daunting. Will they listen or leave?

You’re not alone.

Working with a licensed clinician is crucial in communicating with your family member and initiating their recovery journey, continuing to provide unwavering support throughout.

At Family-Centered Services, we specialize in guiding you through the process of an intervention, ensuring that your collaborative actions are helpful, rather than enabling. We will empower you with the tools to approach the situation effectively. When your loved one is ready for treatment, we employ a holistic approach, unique to your family. Through individual and family therapy, comprehensive case management, and sober accountability, we work to foster healing for your entire family.

There’s no question – tackling this issue head-on is challenging. But with our expert guidance, your commitment, and the strength of your family, a healthier future is within reach.

Take the ILO assessment to get started.

There is no such thing as too much information. Interventions are complex, uncomfortable, and time-sensitive.

The more information we have about your situation and your Identified Loved One (ILO), the better our team can help. We have to act quickly to plan, build a team, and carry out an effective intervention.

    Our Intervention Process

    This is our comprehensive seven-step intervention process, designed to ensure effective recovery and sustainable healing for your loved ones.

  2. Step 1

    Identified Loved One (ILO) Assessment

    The more information we have, the better we can help your identified loved one. To begin, please complete our ILO assessment form. You'll get a follow-up to book a call.

  3. Step 2

    Initial Consultation

    Through personalized discussions, we understand your ILO's situation. Our queries serve as a brief bio-psycho-social assessment, identifying the ideal approach for your family's intervention journey.

  4. Step 3

    Program Enrollment

    FCS develops a service contract and receives your deposit to start planning the intervention. Post-enrollment, we assist you in filling out forms, recruiting intervention team members, and designing a communication blueprint.

  5. Step 4

    Intervention Team Planning

    Each potential team member partakes in a phone interview. We map family dynamics and discuss the ILO’s past experiences, aiding in the creation of a unique treatment plan fitting your loved one's needs and financial capability.

  6. Step 5

    Family Meeting

    The family gathering, held a day prior to the intervention, begins with addiction education. It includes reviewing writing tasks, addressing questions, conducting an intervention rehearsal, and exploring possible event scenarios.

  7. Step 6

    The Intervention

    The intervention typically occurs the morning after the family meeting. We gather at a decided location and facilitate the discussion. Post-intervention, our team accompanies your ILO to their treatment center.

  8. Step 7

    Transport To Treatment

    After the intervention, our interventionist offers a sober escort service, guiding your loved one to the treatment center securely and minimizing resistance or relapse chances.

  9. Step 8

    Ongoing Family Therapy

    Post-treatment, structured family counseling sessions begin. These meetings are a vital platform for healthier communication, effective coping mechanisms, and resolution of underlying issues.

Questions & Answers

We're here to answer your questions.

I don’t know if my ILO has hit rock bottom.

People tend to believe that people struggling with substance abuse need to hit a rock bottom before they can change. An intervention is designed to bring “the bottom” to your loved one.

What does an intervention cost?

The cost of addiction often surpasses intervention services. We sometimes offer payment plans, catering to each family's circumstances. At Family Centered Services, we connect to various high-quality treatment facilities across several states, catering to different genders and locations. We work intimately with individuals and their families to identify the most suitable treatment based on thorough assessments. Furthermore, we accommodate all income levels, considering employer insurance, private insurance, and private pay.

Who should participate in the intervention?

Your intervention team should include influential figures in the addict's life, such as parents, siblings, spouses, children, and extended family. Understanding the family dynamics helps us identify power roles, enablers, and supporters. Using our expertise, we tailor the intervention for successful recovery, ensuring each team member is prepared and committed.

We live across the country- can you help us?

We travel all over the US to prepare and walk families through the uncomfortable conversations in order to get their loved one the help they need. No matter where you live, we can be there within hours. FCS has also fostered a tight-knit network of intervention and mental health professionals throughout the country. We're here to help you find the right fit for your family, even if it isn't us.

What if the addict refuses treatment?

We can continue working with the individual in counseling and with the family in family recovery until the person agrees to go to treatment. Timing is important; often we have to wait until their current situation becomes too uncomfortable for the individual to live with. For some, it happens quickly; for others, counseling and more time can prove beneficial in helping the person choose to go treatment.

What role does our family play in recovery?

Our emphasis on and attention to family recovery plays a pivotal role in helping the individual on the road to recovery. Our family-centered approach sets us apart from other providers and is a great factor in determining long-term success. Going to treatment, being successful in treatment and maintaining healthy relationships is paramount to a better future.
