Intervention Programs

At Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches, we recognize the toll that substance abuse takes on loved ones and offer a variety of intervention programs to help repair families and guide addicted individuals into treatment. Intervention programs can be the key factor in getting a substance abuser to recognize that they have a problem and agree to commit to professional treatment. Because so many substance abusers who need treatment go untreated, the critical role played by interventions cannot be underestimated.

At the same time, interventions should always be professionally planned, supervised, and coordinated. Without professional guidance, an intervention can quickly go wrong, resulting in a subject who becomes defensive, possibly violent, and increasingly resistant to the idea of seeking treatment. This is the worst-case outcome, as it makes all of the participants lose faith in the process and can alienate the subject of the intervention from pursuing treatment even at a later date. Professional interventionists, such as those at Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches, can ensure that the intervention goes as smoothly as possible, ensuring the best chance of a positive outcome from everyone involved.

In addition to our traditional intervention services, we are one of the few organizations to offer specialized treatment for executive patients, and understand the psychology and behavioral aspects of chemical dependency among this unique group. Executives and other high-level professionals often feel they can “power through” any obstacle without the help of others; this makes them particularly resistant to the idea that they have a problem that requires professional help. An executive intervention must be designed with this reality in mind, and executed in a way that does not challenge the ego or self-image of the executive in counterproductive ways. The professional interventionists at Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches have the skills and experience to implement an executive intervention in a way that is sensitive to all of the unique aspects that apply.
