Freedom from Addiction and Mental Health Problems is Possible
IRI is based in San Diego, California - We Specialize In Young Adult Interventions
Intervention and Recovery Institute (IRI) is a Team of intensively and competently trained and experienced intervention specialists and addiction treatment professionals, that have come together to provide families with the highest quality intervention, treatment placement & consulting, and counseling services. The IRI Team specializes in Young Adult Interventions- Our Team is naturally young compared to most interventionists in the country. Our experiences as young adults in today's society gives us a distinct advantage over our colleagues in the industry as we understand the specific challenges young adults face today; we have experienced the challenges and now we help young adults to create a successful life for themselves. We recognize that each family presents unique and complex circumstances that may include mental health challenges in addition to addiction. We understand that most clients will suffer from depression, anxiety or other co-occurring disorders. We are based out of San Diego, CA and will perform interventions and counseling services anywhere in the United States.
Addiction and psychiatric illnesses are mental and behavioral health disorders that cross social, cultural and economic boundaries affecting anyone; housewives to lawyers, children to the elderly. Most often, they remain undetected and untreated until the problem becomes all encompassing resulting in jail, institutions or death.
Watching a loved one fall into the abyss of addiction or succumb to psychiatric illness is painful, frustrating and soul destroying. For most families, it feels like an impossible task, especially if there has been failure before. The unfortunate fact is that this is a painful process. It will stay painful for those suffering, both individuals and their families, until an appropriate intervention takes place to cease the continuity of the problem throughout the family system.
We have a history of successfully performing challenging psychiatric, behavioral and substance-related interventions, drawing empirical knowledge from each encounter to improve our services and train other professionals in specific techniques derived from those experiences.
Conclusive evidence shows that each family system has its own dynamic or set of governing laws called “homeostasis”. If the system supports an illness, the sufferer will, largely unconsciously and as a means of survival, work hard to prevent change and maintain his current environment.
The IRI team will unite the family system and effectively create a shift in homeostasis through assessment, education, preparation and an individualized approach. The result is the individual sensing a change and being forced to respond.
In all but a few rare cases the individual will respond favorably by recognizing their own behavior as destructive to themselves and those around them. They accept the gesture of love by entering an appropriate clinical program to treat the problem.
The family system will benefit the most from the realization that enabling a destructive behavior is as destructive as the behavior itself. The intervention process as a starting point begins to rebuild broken relationships and introduces a healthy homeostasis. Families leave the intervention assured that they have done all they can to help their loved one by offering a new healthy life free from a chronically destructive way of life.
Mental and addictive illnesses are predictable, progressive and fatal in their nature, but also preventable and treatable. We can all agree that however difficult change may be; if nothing changes, nothing changes.
