What is an Intervention? Forget what you think you know because Monarch Interventions are tailor made. Not one is alike. An intervention is a carefully planned process where family and friends attempt to stop the destructive behaviors caused by an individual struggling with addiction and/or mental health disorders. These loved ones gather to express their love and concern to the person of interest as well as examine the harmful effects their behavior has had on the family system. The person of interest is then given a chance to accept professional help at a treatment facility which has been chosen to meet their specific needs. The Intervention process is a highly charged emotionally event, therefore should only be facilitated by licensed clinicians, rather than family members alone or non-clinicaly trained professionals. Don't wait until your loved one hits "rock bottom." Raise the bottom and start the process of hope, healing, and health today.
What is the purpose of an Intervention? The goal of an intervention is not only to bridge the gap between a person in need of help and a professional treatment program, but it is also to help educate and promote change within the family/support system. Addiction is a family disease which is why it's essential for all participating members to understand their role within the illness and work together to change their behavior and improve their lives. An intervention is one of the most important parts of the recovery experience because it activates the spirit of change. The type of change necessary to achieve sustainable wellness over time must not only come from the person of interest but the entire family system.
Why use Monarch for an Intervention? There is a large variety of professionals that host Interventions, this is why consumers must do their homework in researching quality providers. There is no state regulation authority that requires licensing or certification to create an Intervention business. There is also no regulation or accountability for providers that use unethical Intervention practices. To protect and ensure the safety of their loved one and family, Monarch only offers clinically trained staff that have Master's level education, decades of clinical experiences and state-licensed providers. Monarch providers will guide you through the complexity of family trauma and will coach you on how to break the cycle of addiction in a family. Monarch uses a Family-Systems approach which examines the "big picture" surrounding an illness. We are not interventionist that solely focus on getting clients into treatment. This process is not about putting a band-aid on the broken bone. To stop addiction, you much heal the family first. Treatment center consulting is only one piece of the puzzle. We believe in sustainable long-term health for the entire family, which means the family system needs to be observed and healthy changes must be made in order to break old bad habits. The family will require an intensive educational experience that carefully examines each family member's role in the life of the addicted individual. All participating members of the intervention team are then provided the necessary education, support, empowerment, resources and most of all, HOPE. Monarch staff uses a compassionate approach in their work and understands the destructive nature of addiction. We do not offer a one size fits all approach, so forget about what you see on TV. Our staff has worked with some of the nation's top treatment providers. Monarch has been trained in using several different Intervention Models; therefore a unique approach can be tailored to meet the needs of any family circumstance.
