  • Mental health and addiction intervention is a growing field, but it is essential to have the skills and tools to effectively conduct an intervention without causing harm to the identified patient or the family.  Interventionists do not provide assessment or counseling, they work with the family to try to help motivate an individual to seek out counseling. It is highly recommended that you mentor under a certified interventionist in addition to taking the academic training.
