There are many different models of intervention practiced worldwide today. The type of intervention that is selected for you and your loved one will depend on your unique experiences and needs. Intervention is a critical first step on the journey of recovery, therefore it is vitally important that your interventionists work with what is best for you.

Our interventions at Southworth Associates are all facilitated by an experienced, skilled interventionist in a gentle and caring manner. All of our interventions are unique and we will use a blend of three different models of rehab intervention which are:

  • The ARISE Intervention Model involves family members in a collaborative intervention process that reduces guilt and blame and allows the family, interventionist, and dependent person to stay focused on helping the addict get into treatment.
  • The JOHNSON Intervention Model raises the bottom for an addict, which is often death, by compassionately confronting the addict with the consequences of their addiction. The bottom is raised by precipitating a crisis in the addict’s life that is not threatening, damaging, or fatal and compels them into treatment.
  • The SYSTEMIC Intervention Model is an alternative to traditional confrontational intervention models because family, friends, and colleagues form a team to work with the dependent person and address the issues in a loving and respectful manner. It is a successful system precisely because the focus is on patient, but firm, coaching instead of negative confrontation.

Using these three models we will formulate an intervention that will generate the best success for you and your loved one. Our firm, but compassionate, and non-adversarial rehab intervention style helps raise the bottom for the addict to help compel them into treatment. At the same time, our rehab interventionists masterfully foster collaboration between the family and the individual without the crippling guilt and blame that often prevents people from seeking help. Our rehab interventionists help everyone stay focused on the hope for recovery that treatment brings.

By collaborating together as a group and focusing on the hope for recovery as a group, free from the normal guilt and shame associated with addictions, a Southworth Associates rehab intervention is as much a healing event for the group as it is the individual. Southworth Associates will provide professional recommendations for everyone affected by the disease of addiction and will work to serve the groups recovery needs.
