Explaining the need for this course, Estes said, “This is an important course for us. Getting people the help they need early is critical in many cases. And this Advanced Training is held live, not online, for maximum effectiveness and learning.”
The Nationally Certified Advanced Clinical Intervention Course covers both the surprise and invitational models. The course includes an overview of all systems, the pre-qualifying of the client (unique to The Addictions Academy), pre-intervention, intervention, and post-intervention.
The Addictions Academy specifically defines body language, when and how to end the intervention, how to read your client (spoken and silent cues), how to use family to your advantage, when to do an Individual versus a Family intervention and more.
“Our courses include an introduction to the basics of mental health disorders such as codependency, mood disorders, and other DSM-5 disorders, some problems that you will see when working with families and family members when performing a professional intervention,” Dr. Estes Explained.
She went on, “Our goal is to help you to begin to understand the basic clinical aspects of mental health and commonly seen disorders when working with family members, addicts, alcoholics, and people who suffer from all types of compulsive behaviors.”
The nation’s opioid crisis reached new proportions in 2018, continuing to increase from the unbelievable 70,000 deaths we saw in 2017. Overdose deaths are now higher than deaths from H.I.V, car crashes, or gun violence at their peaks.
Fox News reported, “For the first time, odds of dying from opioid overdose higher than dying from a car crash.” The story also noted that a new analysis from the National Safety Council says the odds of dying by an accidental opioid overdose (1 in 96) have now surpassed the odds of dying in a car accident (1 in 103).
And alcohol contributes to 88,000 deaths in the U.S. each year, more than double the number of people, 42,000, killed by heroin and opioid prescription drug overdose in. Excessive drinking accounted for one in 10 deaths among working-age adults.
Estes voiced, “I have seen a dramatic increase in the effectiveness of early intervention by utilizing a variety of the techniques we teach in our Advance Clinical Intervention Course. This is real life, not TV, and we need to employ real strategies that work.”
“Our exclusive RAAD model focuses on body language, client placement, meeting the client at their level and proper placement for continuum care.”
