Williams’ belief is that all situations are different and a combination of intervention approaches is used, to ensure a successful outcome. The goal is to help the family learn how to set boundaries, and get the client into residential treatment or detox.
The entire process usually takes about a week. There is an initial meeting and planning session for family members, followed by the intervention, which typically takes place at the family’s home to ensure privacy and comfort. If a client agrees to go to treatment, Williams helps families plan the treatment protocol, and is on hand to help clients transition into the proper facility. If they choose not to go to treatment, he works with the family to set boundaries and keeps options for individual therapy and referrals available if the client changes their mind.
Post-Intervention and Summary
Williams is on board, even if the intervention does not initially succeed into getting a client into treatment. He believes that even if the intervention is viewed a failure, it was actually valuable, because an important dialogue has started between the client and loved ones.
Additionally, recovery case management services are provided, and aftercare includes individual and group therapy, as well as dual diagnosis support. Families have the option of acquiring a sober companion, or recovery coaching for their addicted family member. With a long list of impressive credentials, Rick Williams is a highly qualified interventionist, and counselor.
