Family Intervention

Every week, people reach out to Heartland Intervention, LLC concerned about a loved one or family member’s drinking or drug use.  Some families have spent years walking on egg shells or trying to ignore addiction.  For others, the prospect of loving someone who struggles with substance use or addiction is a new and scary reality.

Indiana Intervention Leader

While not everyone who struggles with substance abuse needs an intervention, Heartland Intervention takes pride in coming along side of families during this important and uncertain time.  As a leader in intervention services in Indiana and beyond, we provide service that is professional, credentialed, affordable and caring.

Intervention Process

Many families considering intervention are surprised to learn that intervention is a process and not an event.  Often it begins with a consultation either in our office or on the phone.  This is designed to answer questions and make sure that intervention is appropriate for the family.  While we use the leverage of surprise, our interventions are always loving, respectful and free of any anger or resentment on the part of the team.

Once an intervention agreement is signed, a comprehensive assessment in conducted in an effort to learn as much as we can about the identified patient.  This information is used to make recommendations about a treatment center that will be a good fit clinically and socially.  During this time, we assist the family in selecting a team of individuals-including at least one wild card- to be present at the intervention.

Drug addiction and alcohol problems usually come with a high degree of denial, depression, anxiety and anger.  During the intervention planning meeting, we address how these and other objections will be handled.  This is also the time when families are able to finally take action in support of recovery and standing against the status quo.  Families tell us that while emotional, these meetings help the family to heal.

Does Intervention Work

Over 85% of those we have intervened on go to treatment directly from the intervention.  Of the 15% that have not- over 65% have gone to treatment within the next 14 days.  That is a remarkable success rate.  Remember however, those are not just numbers.  They represent lives, families, parental rights, jobs and freedom saved from the hopeless life of addiction.

Don’t wait.  If you have a loved one struggling with drug use, alcohol use or more, call Us at 317-752-8811.  Our founder Scott J. Watson is a Licensed Clinical Addictions Counselor (LCAC), Master Addictions Counselor (MAC), Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) and DOT qualified Substance Abuse Professional (SAP).  He is formerly a Board Registered Interventionist who looks forward to talking to you.  As Scott says, “I have a front row seat to see lives saved and families change.”
