“The information you have given is an asset to assist a lot of the clients that are ambivalent to treatment. The one that really stood out is the obituary and legacy . Many of the clients have children and the impact of this tool can be huge. I will also pass the information to counselors that are new and old to the field. Most of them can use the given tools to identify their own nuances or biases that can interrupt their ability to provide effective treatment. I have noticed, the longer a counselor is in the field the more resistant they are to changes. I feel that you have presented information that can be effective and easily implemented, whether you are new or old in the field. Thank you for taking the time to give us the information.”

Having fun during our training with Dr. Cali Estes at affinity Behavioral Health. What an amazing class and so much fun during our training in AMA/APA blocking for clients. I learned so much about how to de-escalate the client, how to stand, what to say, what NLP is, and how to understand the 5 different personalities of clients. I cannot recommend this training enough.”

Five Reasons You Need to Become a Certified Interventionist

Five Reasons You Need to Become a Certified Interventionist


 certified interventionist

Addiction is a problem that doesn’t discriminate. It affects people from all walks of life, regardless of their age, race, or gender. Those who suffer from addiction need certified intervention professionals to help them break the cycle of addiction and live a healthier lifestyle.

Certified interventionists are certified to help people who have a substance abuse issue. The process is called drug and alcohol intervention. Interventionists also help with other addictive behaviors like gambling addiction, sex addiction, and internet addiction. This blog post will explore some of the reasons why you should become a certified interventionist today!

You’ll have the opportunity to work with people from all walks of life.

As a certified interventionist, you’ll have the opportunity to work with a diverse population of people from all walks of life.

From helping young adults overcome addiction in their lives and working with couples experiencing difficulties and need guidance through tough times, certified interventionists can offer valuable insight into what it takes for someone to live happily and productively while overcoming obstacles such as addiction, family breakdowns, and more.

For instance, certified interventionists can help people overcome addiction by identifying what led them to substance abuse in the first place and work towards a plan that will allow them to live a fulfilling life without drugs or alcohol.

Certified intervention professionals can also help people work through family breakdowns by offering advice, fostering healthy communication between all family members, and creating an environment conducive to healing from the hurt that caused a break-up in the first place.

There are many opportunities that you can take advantage of by becoming a Certified Professional Interventionist

Certified interventionists are certified to help people with all sorts of problems. It’s a common misconception that interventionists only specialize in addiction, but they can work on any mental health issue or family problem.

  • You might also be certified as an individual and provide services for your friends and/or relatives.
  • Working at an addiction treatment facility will allow you to work with a diverse population of clients.
  • You can be certified as an interventionist to provide services in the juvenile justice system or help out kids at risk for substance abuse.
  • If you’re certified, it’s easier to find jobs that require this certification because they know your qualifications and skills. You can also work on your own or find an agency that will pay you per hour or per job.

It’s not difficult to learn everything because there are so many resources.

Certified Intervention Professionals that are bonded and insured and trained properly have many opportunities for learning new skills and gaining knowledge about what is going on in the world.

You will have the opportunity to earn a salary that is competitive with other professions.

Certified intervention professionals can make a respectable living and help people who have addiction problems. There is an opportunity to earn a competitive salary that may be higher than other professions. This is because it’s a specialized profession that can feel rewarding and save lives. Careers are available in both counseling centers or hospitals, as well as private practice settings.

You’ll need to complete your certified intervention professional training, which you can do through The Addictions Academy’s certified intervention courses. Your salary may vary depending upon the type of setting you practice and your level of experience.

Most Certified Intervention Professionals make $5000 to $10,000 per intervention. If you are a Certified Advanced intervention Professional, you will make more. You can also charge less or work pro bono as well.

There are scholarships available for those who qualify. 

The Addictions Academy frequently offers scholarships, discounts and payment plans to those that qualify for financial aid. We also offer bundle packages for multiple classes if you want to be cross trained.

Final Thoughts

If you are looking to help your loved ones overcome addiction, then becoming a certified interventionist may be the best way for you to do that. The training process is rigorous and extensive, but it will not only result in being qualified to provide crucial support during a crisis, it can also allow someone with an addiction to get treatment without having any barriers.
