Professionals and volunteers who work in settings where drug-affected human behavior can be monitored for corrective healthcare should understand the advanced methods for intervention. This course builds upon the basic understanding of chemical dependency intervention through learning applied methods. Methods can then be put into practice by a professionally orchestrated intervention in order to assist the addict/alcoholic to accept treatment. Topics covered include the history, functions, and approaches of intervention; the family as a system; enabling behavior of all persons involved with the addict/alcoholic; and various modalities of treatment.
