The struggle of addiction can be deadly and lead to family strain, relationship failure, and other emotionally turbulent struggles. More people die yearly from addiction than in car crashes, even though addiction is treatable. With the guidance at Red Willow, your family, loved one, or spouse can heal and overcome the disease of addiction.
While you may be concerned about the confrontational nature of interventions, we never ambush, force, or shame people into treatment. Our interventionist has been trained in the ARISE Invitational Intervention model. This process is designed to help families strengthen their relationships and come together rather than point blame at one person. From the start, we build family unity through respect — no surprises, no secrets, no coercion.
Those who struggle with addiction are often looked down upon and outsiders wonder why they can’t just kick the bad habit. Treating addiction requires understanding that addicted individuals are controlled by the substance or action. Outside help is needed to break the cycle and chains that the addictive substance has on a person. There is no need to wait until the addict or loved one is at rock bottom to seek treatment. Red Willow is willing to help no matter what stage the addiction is in.
The ARISE® Invitational Model of Intervention
The ARISE® Invitational Intervention is an evidence-based method of getting people into treatment and on the path to recovery. ARISE® gets over 83% of addicted individuals into treatment. And, by the end of the first year of treatment, 61% of individuals are sober. In addition, Red Willow Counseling has the only certified ARISE® interventionist in the state of Utah.
The ARISE® Invitational Intervention isn’t just one meeting. It is a continuum of care that starts with the initial intervention meeting and gradually escalates until the addicted individual engages in treatment. Afterward, the family continues to meet weekly with the interventionist to change unhealthy family habits. Through intervention your family can break the repeated patterns of relapse and disappointment while creating renewed hope.
The First Call: To get started, call our certified ARISE interventionist for a free phone consultation at 385-313-0055. After collecting information and determining if an intervention is necessary, you’ll be guided to invite others into this process, set up the first meeting, and invite the addicted family member with compassion. The ARISE interventionist facilitates all of the intervention meetings.
Level 1 – First Meeting: In this initial meeting, we explore family dynamics, including healthy and unhealthy ways of connecting. Family and friends form an intervention network to express concerns and invite the addicted individual into treatment. After this step, 56% of individuals enter treatment.
Level 2 – Strength in Numbers: The intervention network continues to meet as a group to motivate the addicted loved one to get help. The intervention network also works on improving their individual and collective health. After two to five Level 2 meetings, 80% of addicted individuals enter treatment.
Level 3 – The Formal ARISE Intervention: If the individual has not yet entered treatment, we facilitate a formal intervention. Families establish consequences as a unified group and continue to work together toward healing. After this step, 83% of addicted individuals enter treatment.
After the individual struggling with addiction enters treatment, the family enters the ARISE continuing care process, which lasts for six months. We provide ongoing education and support and also encourage families to participate in a 12-step program or other support group. Our interventionist works collaboratively with your family to overcome the disease of addiction, prevent relapse, and create a promising future defined by resilience, solidarity, and hope.
