In response to COVID19, we have moved to a modular system of intervention, which can be delivered through secure video conference. Safety is always our first concern, and in today’s environment, family members and friends are often unable to participate in person. We have the solution.
Personalized Virtual Services
We have updated our methods to provide a personalized experience via secure video conferencing. All of our clinical services are as robust as ever, but they are now being delivered by secure zoom video conference (HIPAA compliant or HIPAA waiver). We take care of the technical details, providing a simple and seamless experience for you.
The intervention service can be split into three modules. Note that modules can only be utilized in order (one cannot contract for Module 3, Intervention Day, without having completed the preceding two modules).
Module 1: Assessment and Training. This multi-hour conference will galvanize your team and train them in the fundamentals of a Love First intervention. Your Love First clinical interventionist will take your team through a history-gathering and assessment process. This will solidify your team and build confidence in the process. Module 1 also includes training on writing your intervention letters, using the 7-point process from the book Love First, along with instruction for bottom line letters. We’ll take time to plan for objections that may come up during the intervention, and develop appropriate answers. We will also make treatment recommendations as a result of the assessment and history, and help you make contact with appropriate treatment providers. Details about strategy and timing will also be covered.
Module 2: Rehearsal and Preparation. Planning and preparation are the keys to a successful intervention. Module 2 is focused on fine-tuning the details. This includes a group experience of reading through and editing the intervention letters, clarifying the answers to all objections and editing bottom line letters. Families often find this process emotional and inspiring, and they gain increased confidence in the process. We will set the order of the letters and finalize our strategy. We will also help you with pre-admission details with your chosen treatment provider and help with travel arrangements, if necessary. We will work with the team to plan for various scenarios which might take place in the intervention, like a walk out. We leave no stone unturned in our preparations. The rehearsal takes place the day before the intervention.
Module 3: Intervention Day. Your Love First clinical interventionist will lead your team through every moment of this important day. We begin with a pre-intervention meeting to go over the details and answer any concerns. As the intervention begins, we will lead your team during through the entire process, including answering objections and dealing with any difficulties that arise. Love First interventions are successful 85-90% of the time in getting a person into treatment on intervention day. We will provide support through the travel experience, and help to work through any issues. A written clinical synopsis will be provided to the treatment center, to help with treatment planning.
There is so much more to our modular approach to intervention. Call us today, and we’ll discuss how a Love First intervention can work for your family.
