An Overview of ARISE® Continuing Care with Intervention

ARISE® gets over 83% of addicted individuals into treatment in three weeks. 96% enter treatment in six months. 61% sober by the end of the first year, with 10% more using less.

Continuing Care with Intervention
Using a compassionate Invitational Intervention®, the ARISE® Continuum of Care is a gradually-escalating process of respectful, gentle family meetings, that leads your loved one into appropriate treatment and recovery. Your Person of Concern is invited to join the process right from the beginning with no surprises, no secrets, no coercion, and absolute respect and love.

 

The ARISE® Continuing Care with Intervention process breaks the cycle of repeated disappointment, failure and fear, without the blame, shame, and guilt that accompanies the disease. It brings healing to family, friends and co-workers who come together to build a solid recovery network. The focus of ARISE® is on both individual and family healing and recovery.

The ARISE® Intervention is directed towards getting the addicted loved one into treatment with the least possible effort through a loving, compassionate and non-blaming First Call and First Meeting. The support system is mobilized to form a committed Intervention Network to motivate the addicted individual into treatment. Phase A has three levels and the goal is to stop at the first level that works:

Level 1

“The First Call” starts when a Concerned Other calls a Certified ARISE® Interventionist for a free phone consultation, and is coached to set up the First Meeting of the Intervention Network. 56% of addicted individuals enter treatment at Level 1.

Level 2

“Strength in Numbers” begins if they have not entered treatment during Level 1. The Intervention Network acts as a Board of Directors, so no one deals one-on-one with the addicted individual. By the end of 2 to 5 Intervention Network meetings, 80% of addicted individuals have entered treatment.

Level 3

“The Formal ARISE® Intervention” is held if treatment entry has not occurred during Level 2. At this meeting serious consequences are put in place if the addicted individual does not enter treatment. By this point, 83% of addicted individuals have entered treatment.

ARISE® Continuing Care begins when the addicted individual enters treatment, and lasts for 6 months. The goals are individual and family healing and recovery. It includes, if possible, the family and individual becoming involved in an appropriate support group.

The Certified ARISE® Interventionist works collaboratively with the addicted individual, the treatment center, and the family to ensure treatment completion, relapse prevention, and theresolution of grief and other problems at the root of the pain and the addictive disease.

With the correct treatment and involvement of both family and Person of Concern, a healthy life is possible. Family and friends play a substantial role in recovery.
