The 5-day course covers every aspect of intervention: structured family intervention, executive-style intervention, workplace intervention, invitational-style / process intervention and other variations. The goal is to prepare clinicians to individualize to the needs of families and the addicted person, including working with dual diagnosis and special populations. Participants also learn how to build and market their own professional practice.

Active learning dominates the training experience. Participants engage in problem solving, analysis, evaluation, and team-based learning. The course includes case supervision of each participant’s first three interventions.

Certification hours from Betty Ford Center are compliant with CAADAC, NAADAC, APA, CIP, NASW, NBCC and others.

The training is provided personally by Jeff Jay and Debra Jay.

Love First Certified Clinical InterventionistJeff and Debra Jay have developed curriculum workbooks specifically for this course.

Additionally, all participants will receive clinical field materials, written by the Jays, to be used when doing actual interventions.
