For Sober Caddy, intervention goes far beyond trying to get someone to a treatment center. Where many interventionists are worried about avoiding the next relapse, we are more concerned about long-term recovery. This fundamental shift in thinking helps us successfully intervene and helps place your loved ones on a path to recovery for the long term.
Our program is divided in three phases:
- Understanding Your loved One
- After Treatment Plan
3 Phases of Intervention
1) Understanding Your Loved One
A professional interventionist uses several techniques and models to help a loved one get to treatment. The most well-known model is called the Johnson Intervention Model where you confront the family member. However, there are several models and once we learn about your loved one, we will help you determine which intervention technique will work best.
Once the best technique has been agreed upon, Sober Caddy will assist you with the intervention. We will do most of the communicating to your loved one, and we will lead the intervention on behalf of your family. With options for treatment facilities already in place, we will help your loved one make the transition to recovery.
3) After Treatment Plan
Once your loved one has a discharge plan from a treatment center — which usually consists of therapy, medication and Alcoholic Anonymous meetings — Sober Caddy begins to implement a tailored approach for your loved one.
As your loved one seeks treatment for drug and alcohol abuse, intervention services become critical for long-term recovery. It’s important for an intervention specialist to educate the family about drug addiction and substance abuse.
Elements of Sober Caddy’s Interventionist Program
Our successful intervention focuses on four pillars: the A.A. program, creating an environment of accountability, employment, and setting goals for the future. With a professional interventionist, all program details and communication will come through Sober Caddy representatives so your family can have peace of mind. You no longer need to be the one holding your loved one accountable.
Men and women have been getting sober with the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous since the 1930s. In fact, the book Alcoholics Anonymous was often the only tool people had to recover and their only treatment program. The 12 Steps work when done the correct way and are a major pillar of our program. If someone is not working on the steps, then they likely will not recover and they will probably have to enter treatment again.
We believe family members should remain family and friends, instead of the arbiter of their loved one’s program for recovery. You can go back to being mom and dad because all communication and accountability run through Sober Caddy. You don’t have to be the one holding them accountable anymore. The addicted person can harm the family system, especially when mom and dad are holding the drug abuser or alcoholic for their relapses and use.
One of the requirements of working with Sober Caddy is that your loved one will need to find work. With our intervention programs, we help the people we work with write resumes, apply for a job and use our network to help them find work when applicable.
Our goal is to motivate Sober Caddy participants to move forward both in recovery and in life. We set daily, weekly, monthly and even yearly personal goals that go beyond recovery. We want to continue to invest in their recovery and life through goal forecasting and life coaching.
