We like to use the word “compassionate” when we can because addiction is such a horrifying disease; it affects the addict and everyone around the addict. We also believe that love and compassion are the two essential qualities you must have when dealing with an addict. Not only do we deal with many areas of addictive behavior, we also have a network of other facilities that we collaborate with, who are the best at what they do.
Let us help you find the proper treatment for your loved one. Call us today at 855-770-0577
Compassionate Treatment primarily uses the Johnson Model of Intervention (named for Vernon Johnson). Detractors of the Johnson model dislike it because you “surprise” the person engaged in addictive behaviors. We at Compassionate Interventions believe the Johnson Model is the most effective way to conduct an intervention, because if you notify an individual engaged in addictive behavior that there is going to be a “meeting,” they often won’t show up. If they do show up, they will have several convincing reasons why they can’t go to treatment at this time. We also believe that the Johnson model is the most cost effective way to address addictive behavior, because many of the “Invitation Models” are very costly by the time the addicted individual is brought into the group.
One of our philosophies is, “Just because a person is engaged in unintelligent behavior, does not mean they are an unintelligent person.”
The person engaged in addictive behavior is still that person you love; they are just currently on the wrong path. It is the goal of Compassionate Treatment that everyone in the family during an intervention comes from a mindset of “love and compassion.”
Our goal in an intervention is to not only get the addict into treatment, but also to support the family so the addict’s behavior changes while in treatment are supported in a healthy, positive way once they complete treatment and return to the social group. Even after the loved one is placed in treatment, family members are free to call Compassionate Treatment with any questions. It is our goal to be a part of the process for as long as the family needs us to.
