Many individuals involved in substance abuse treatment and prevention, as well as uninvolved citizens across the nation, familiar with the popular television series featuring formal interventions on substance abuse. For those that are not, this series highlights the process of arranging and executing a formal, Johnson model intervention.
Intervention Continuing Care
What this television show unfortunately does not highlight is the vital process of case management and continuing care. This is very important in heightening a substance abuser’s chance for long-term recovery. When an intervention first occurs, this is the beginning of a long and amazing process, not an end in itself.
Whether the individual enters treatment or not, this first meeting is the beginning of shift in family operatation. The family system, patterns of behavior, and familial coping skills up until this point have facilitated the crisis at hand. In order to make a lasting change in these areas of a family, one intervention alone is insufficient.
