The overall mission of Substance Use Education & intervention at NASC is to provide services designed to empower patients to make healthy, informed and intentional choices about their use of substances.
Research shows that the most effective way to help a loved one who is struggling with a substance use problem is to intervene early. Our Experienced counselors have the knowledge and training to help families, friends, and coworkers participate in the intervention in a helpful and nonjudgmental manner.
Our Intervention Methods
Motivational Interviewing: The focus of this type of intervention is on conversation. There is little or no planning in terms of what will be said during the intervention, and participants are there to encourage the individual in question to discuss the situation, identify the root of the problem as addiction, and talk about the options available for change.
ARISE Intervention Model:The focus of this method of intervention is the entire family, not just the person living with addiction. This style of intervention acknowledges that the entire family is harmed by addiction, and the focus is to get everyone on a healing path.
