Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel and act as we cope with life. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.

A mental disorder, also called a mental illness, psychological disorder or psychiatric disorder, is mental or behavioral pattern that causes either suffering or a poor ability to function in ordinary life.

The causes of mental disorders are often unclear. Theories may incorporate findings from a range of fields. Mental disorders are usually defined by a combination of how a person feels, acts, thinks or perceives.[1] This may be associated with particular regions or functions of the brain, often in a social context. A mental disorder is one aspect of mental health.

Overcoming Opposition

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 addiction and mental illness.

Our experienced Intervention Specialists provide expert 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 reduced further damage from occurring to already strained relationships, while substantially increasing the odds of getting those suffering from life-threatening conditions successfully into treatment centers and residential rehabs.


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.
An Intelligent Approach

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.

Initiating An Intervention

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.

Professional Support

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.

How It Works

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.

Getting Started

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.

Necessary Measures

Crisis situations are extremely stressful for the inflicted individual and those closest to them. If someone you care about needs help, take the next step… Move forward – because without change – it will not get better.
