What is ARISE®?

Posted on January 29th, 2014

Judith Landau and co-developers implement ‘power of family’ in strong Intervention Model
Recognized by industry leaders as the original Invitational Intervention
protocol, A Relational Intervention Sequence for Engagement (the ARISE®
Intervention) is an Evidence-Based, Best-Practice method of Intervention that harnesses the power of the family to achieve its mission for individual and family long-term recovery through Family Motivation to Change.

The ARISE Intervention invites the addicted individual to join the process right from the beginning with no surprises, no secrets, no coercion, and absolute respect and love.  
A support system is mobilized to form a committed Intervention
Network to motivate the addicted individual into treatment.

The Intervention has three levels that cease at the first level that works:

* Level 1 “The First Call”, starts when a Concerned Other calls a Certified
ARISE Interventionist for a free phone consultation, and is coached
to mobilize the support network to motivate your loved one to
attend the ARISE First Meeting of the Intervention Network. 56% of
addicted individuals enter treatment at Level 1.

* Level 2 “Strength in Numbers” begins if the addicted individual has not
accepted help in Level 1. The Intervention Network acts as a
Family Board of Directors; no one deals one-on-one with the addicted
individual. By the end of two to five Intervention Network meetings,
80% of addicted individuals have entered treatment.

* Level 3 “The Formal ARISE Intervention” is held if treatment
acceptance has not occurred during Level 2. This level is rarely
needed but almost invariably results in treatment entry because the
troubled individual is well prepared for this outcome. At this meeting
serious consequences are put in place if the addicted individual fails to
accept help. By this point, 83% of addicted individuals have said yes
to help.

ARISE Continuing Care supports your Loved One through ARISE
Treatment and into Recovery. It begins when the addicted individual
enters treatment, and lasts for a minimum of 6 months. The goals are
individual and family healing and recovery.   
It continues until both individual and family are Living in Recovery and
family healing. This includes ensuring that work, life style, social circle,
family relationships and personal decisions made for personal growth in
Phase B are happening for the individual and family.
