For those outside California, virtual intervention options are available, as well as the option to have an intervention counselor come to you for a face-to-face at home.
As part of the intervention process, an intervention specialist will work closely with the individual struggling with alcoholism and their family members to provide the skills needed to support and show them why treatment is the right answer. The intervention specialist will also outline the entire rehab process so that all involved know what to expect.
