What is an intervention?
An Intervention is an occasion on which a person with an addiction or other behavioral problem is confronted by a group of friends or family members, or just the interventionist, in an attempt to persuade them to address the issue. Most interventionists work in a crisis setting and disrupt the behavior on demand. A person would hire an addiction interventionist to get help for an alcoholic, drug addict or other affliction causing harm to the client or the family.
How do I become an Interventionist?
There are currently no state or federal rules or certification bodies overseeing intervention so you need to find the style and model of intervention you want to learn and study under those professionals. You do not need an advanced degree to become an interventionist, but most interventionists have lived experienced.
How much do interventionists make?
Most top interventionists charge up to $10,000 to perform an intervention for a family or a business. Interventionists can of course work pro bono in a nonprofit setting, or for a company on a salary which is usually around $42,000 per year.
How do I get certified as an Interventionist?
You chose the training program that interests you, complete the courses and exams with that company and they can certify you. There is no state or federal regulatory board at this time and anyone can advertise as an interventionist, although we do not recommend it.
