Our Programs

Intervention Services

Intervention services offer clients a positive first interaction with recovery treatment, give them tools to examine their substance use, and refer them to another level of care if necessary.

Holy Family Institute’s Intervention Service is an expansion of our substance use treatment services and will include prevention and pre-treatment options. These services are ideal for clients whose substance use has begun to interfere with their health and well-being, but who do not yet require outpatient treatment.

Who is eligible for these services?

Adolescents ages 9-18 who are first time marijuana users, pregnant/postpartum marijuana users, and pregnant/postpartum opioid users.

What specific services are included in Intervention Services?

Screening: Clients will be given a Complete Needs Assessment and a Drug and Alcohol Screen to show how we can best serve them.

Referrals and Case Coordination: We will assist clients with making connections to appropriate community support services and resources, as needed, to enhance their quality of life and support their recovery.
