Family First Intervention Announces Plan for Accountability of Addicts in the New Year

CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) DECEMBER 29, 2015 – Fresh off the recent statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) about the record number of overdose-related deaths, Family First Intervention announces a plan to help people hold their loved ones accountable for their actions surrounding alcohol and drug addiction. Many New Years’ resolutions tend to involve health-related matters, and addiction is one of the most devastating conditions for individuals, families and communities.

An inherent factor of addiction is that people who need the help rarely ask for it without some form of outside influence. When this influence comes in the form of a professional intervention, then their chances of making the leap from being an addict into recovery much more likely. Without this type of intervention, someone or something else will eventually step in, but the consequences could be much more dire.

“Addicts and alcoholics falsely believe that they can continue their addiction and also have a happy life, but they can’t both exist at the same time. It’s up to family members and other loved ones to hold them accountable for their behavior and not continue to help them destroy their lives,” says Mike Loverde, founder of Family First Intervention.

Mike and his team of dedicated intervention specialists and counselors work with addicts and families throughout the country, and have prepared themselves to deal with the influx of people ready to make a change and work toward recovery.

“We help families achieve the understanding and resolve they need to make necessary changes so that they will no longer display unhealthy co-dependency or continue to enable the addictions. As a result of our intervention plan, addicts and their loved ones are able to begin healing.”

Family First Intervention goes beyond merely getting the addict to agree to go get help. In addition to that and helping to educate the family, they can also assist them in finding appropriate treatment facilities through their referral network at Addiction Treatment Services.

As a Certified Intervention Professional (CIP), member of NAATP, NAADAC, and accredited by the Pennsylvania Certification Board, Mike Loverde knows first-hand what it’s like to live life with addiction. By overcoming it, he had a calling to work with others who struggle with drug and alcohol addictions—the people who use and the families who feel helpless watching them decay.

With thousands of interventions across the United States done and many more to come, Loverde continues to own the intervention space, since 2005, by working with medical doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists and others who need expert assistance for their patients who need intervention. To further his impact on behavioral health and maximize intervention effectiveness, Loverde is near completion of a Masters in Addiction Studies (MHS) accreditation, as well as a Licensed Independent Substance Abuse Counselor (LISAC), and is committed to attaining the designation of a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC).
