A message from Diversified Intervention Group’s Founding Director, Eddie Salan 07/01/2011

white_dig_logo_smallFor those of you who are interested in the true definition of the difference between a 12-step call and a professional drug and alcohol intervention facilitated by a trained DIG Clinician, I have clearly defined them below for you.

It is one of my objectives as the Founding Director for DIG to keep a clear understanding of these two very important definitions. Not all of the calls we get for help are actually worthy of a drug abuse intervention or an alcohol abuse intervention. In fact, most of them are not. We are not going to try and sell the service when it is really not needed. Formal intervention truly works the best and is very effective in extreme cases. For example, when a severe alcoholic starts Delirium Tremens (DTs) or some other severe medical condition has begun. Intervention is a process, not an event and this service is reserved for people who have exhausted all other options.

Most of the calls that we get for service can simply be solved by referring the caller to the appropriate facility for treatment and/or counseling. Much of our time is spent developing and maintaining these relationships in order to be able to handle these calls appropriately with correct and up-to-date information.

It has become clear in the last few years that many people are being put into treatment before they are ready to be put there which causes folks to relapse many times. Why does this happen? Because some facilities have high overhead costs and need to meet quotas or shareholders’ expectations. DIG has none of these and we carefully assess each case and make informed decisions on how to handle each case individually depending on your particular set of unique circumstances.

The definition of an Intervention

A business deal agreed upon between two parties where specially-trained staff members from DIG provide a service to intervene in a family addiction. These Clinicians are well-seasoned professional Therapists who hold masters degrees and have been working in the industry for at least 10+ years. We only use the best Interventionists from East Coast to West Coast. We will provide your family with solid references upon request from your family setting us far above.

The Diversified Intervention Group’s highly-trained Clinicians work hard each and every day to understand the disease of addiction more thoroughly. Our hope is that a family intervention may not be required, but many times it is the only option left.

Our administrators are committed to finding new ways and methods to battle chemical dependency as it relates to the practice of our service. One of our goals is to apply the principles that have been taught to us and proven by our forefathers in recovery.

Our service has become a unique blend of expanding the definition of the word intervention & the ability to reach out to as many treatment facilities throughout the United States and other countries as possible. We are looking into new areas by attempting to serve under-served population(s) throughout the world.

Currently, six to ten percent of The United States’ general population fall into this category. Of that number, ten percent are addicts and/or alcoholics. Approximately 2 million and that number is growing each day. Without access to a program of recovery, this very large group of under-served and disadvantaged people are left to fend for themselves. DIG’s Clinicians spend countless hours learning cutting-edge techniques and methods in practicing our part in the continuum of care as it relates to recovery.

We can use your help to continue our mission. To donate, please visit our donation page.

Thank You,

Eddie Salan, Founding Director

The definition of a 12-Step Call

Helping families learn about the disease of addiction is our business

Helping families learn about the disease of addiction is our business
A 12-Step call is a term used by members of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous (and other 12 step groups), whereby members that have completed the 12 step program are invited to meet a still-suffering person with an addiction, normally by a family member, to discuss the benefits of AA and/or NA from personal experiences.This is normally conducted in the home by the members discussing what it used to be like, what happened, and where we are today.Alcoholics Anonymous, while being the most popular self-help organization globally, does not provide any clinical or therapeutic services and access is free of charge.

This method typically poses a huge risk to not only the person with the addiction, but the family in question as well. Some 12 step calls do not go well and have made some cases even worse by driving the alcoholic and/or addict deeper into his or her addiction because of the lack of professional training and experience handling these delicate processes.

While some members of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous have clinical vocations, a 12-Step call must not be confused with a professional-lead intervention as most AA/ NA members are not trained to educate the family about the medical or clinical aspects of addiction or identify any underlying traumas that might affect the suffering alcoholic’s early recovery. Equally, it is possible that the suffering individual may be physically dependent on a controlled substance, requiring detoxification prior to any further help, whether that be through AA/NA or an addiction treatment program like one of the following:

Our team has been professionally trained to provide intervention and aftercare services that are designed to educate the entire family system, lovingly break down denial and help the suffering cross over from their addiction into recovery.
