McGuire aims for a “controlled crisis,” which is an aggressive yet loving approach. Prior to the intervention, the procedure is rehearsed with the family and select friends. Additionally, information about the client is gathered, and a strategy is presented with the goal of getting the client into the appropriate level of care. During the intervention, the client is directly confronted and presented an ultimatum as well as solutions.
The family tells the client that they love the individual and that they can’t let this behavior continue. With McGuire’s assistance, they have located a residential treatment facility or detox. During the intervention, this is mentioned. If the intervention is successful, the client is transported to rehab or detox as soon as possible.
