The intervention process involves four steps:

  • Orientation/Education
  • Assessment and Planning
  • Pre-Intervention Rehearsal
  • Intervention

Intervention is a caring, non-judgmental method for family members, significant others, friends and/or employers to express concern about an individual’s alcoholism or addiction.  This process brings the family, friends and employer together as a team.

Trained in the Johnson Institute method of intervention, Marty has conducted successful interventions since 1986.  Intervention is an emotional response to a situation that does not respond to rational thought.  The alcoholic/addict will recognize the need for help when the intervention team overwhelms the denial system with data, love and concern.
