Our hope is that we can help you get started on the path to life!

Our Approach To Interventions

Day One, Marin’s approach to the intervention process is what “doing everything you can” looks like in practice. For someone struggling with mental health and/or addiction issues time is of the essence. The sooner those issues are confronted directly, the better not only for the individual suffering from them; but also their loved ones. After going through the intervention process, the most common response we hear from our clients and/or their loved ones is “I wish we would have done this a couple years ago.”

 

Our Approach To Interventions

An intervention is about change. It’s about action. It’s about healing. It is a long overdue “jumpstart” for an individual suffering from mental health and/or addiction issues. Interventions are often the best means by which to guide an individual towards making better decisions and necessary changes in their life. For the most part, the families that come to us for Intervention services are emotionally, physically, and spiritually exhausted—even hopeless that things can get better. The whole family system is traumatized by one person’s illness. Our goal is to shoulder the burden for families, plan accordingly, and facilitate an intervention to accelerate the recovery healing process for their loved one, and themselves.

Our Approach To Interventions

The fact is, addiction is a chronic and deadly disease that progressively gets worse over time. The wake of destruction it leaves behind not only afflicts the individual suffering from mental health / addiction issues, but those that are near and dear to them. The American Medical Association describes addiction as a treatable, chronic, and deadly disease. Unlike other diseases, the person suffering doesn’t know it’s a problem.  Immediate action is necessary to stop the progression.

 

Our Approach To Interventions

When a loved one is suffering from mental health issues, and/or an addictive disorder, it can seem like a never ending bounce from crisis to crisis. This is where we come in—to end the “crisis spiral”.  Our years of experience, education and training in all modalities of intervention combined with a team approach, allows Day One, Marin to help families and friends formulate a personalized  intervention strategy.
