There is a widely believed misconception that someone has to hit ‘rock-bottom’ and has to ask for help in order to have a chance of recovery.
Fortunately, that is not the case. Unfortunately, this fallacy has caused a great deal of harm to many thousands of people. We have all seen people who have been struggling with some issue in their lives and found it difficult to ask for assistance. Sometimes it just requires someone to ask, offer or nudge them in the right direction in order for them to accept the help they need.
An intervention is a formal way of doing this. We use a compassionate and collaborative approach to gather people around the suffering person and assist them in making the right choices for themselves. Working with families and loved ones, a clear plan is developed, with appropriate care and treatment options lined up. Portobello Behavioural Health can ensure that all the necessary arrangements are taken to capitalise on the important moment when someone accepts the offer of help following an intervention.
We have many years of experience to help guide and lead you through this process, working collaboratively with you every step of the way and providing the emotional and practical support that family and friends often require. Portobello Behavioural Health is able to offer interventions as a stand-alone service but often provides it alongside its other support including: case management, sober coaching, transportation services and care planning.
