Professional Interventions for Addictions and Behavioural Health by Ian Young and Janique Svedberg.


OCN4Learning Accredited
Sober-Academy is delighted to present its signature training programmes, Professional Interventions for Addictions and Behavioural Health.

Have you ever had a client who didn’t want to stop doing what we knew was causing them severe damage, and yet they insisted they didn’t need any help or simply didn’t want to talk about it?

An intervention can be a helpful tool for a family member, colleague or friend who is resistant to addressing his or her problem, maybe through denial or inability to accept the facts.
In the past, there was an attitude that people couldn’t be helped unless they had “hit rock bottom” and asked for help themselves, but this view has now changed.

Statistics in North America and the UK have shown that even those people who are initially resistant to treatment and who undergo a Sober Intervention do very well and have great opportunities to recover.

Sober Academy Intervention Training will teach you how to guide families and help their loved ones to accept the treatment you’re offering them with grace, by showing you the loving and safe processes interventionists use in Western Europe and North America.

Learning Objectives for the Professional Interventions for Addictions and Behavioural Health Training.

During this intense 3 day training you will gain the following:


  • You will learn a loving and safe process you can use for your Interventions around the globe.

  • Learn a proven international intervention model to assist people into treatment, even when they’ve resisted in the past.

  • Learn the latest in substance abuse and behavioural health.

  • Understand how to assist families/colleagues/friends to create healthy relationships with loving boundaries.

  • Learn how to form a deeper understanding of the commitment family members and friends need to help their loved one.

  • Learn how to assist clients into treatment, even when they say they’re not interested, or are still in denial.

  • Discover how we can work with families to bring about real, permanent change which can have a long lasting effect.

  • Experience this powerful process to help even more families into recovery.

Hosted by Ian Young of Sober Services and Janique Svedberg from The Valet Recovery Centre, this 3 day training will give you a full insight into how to work with the family to guide clients and bring about the willingness to accept the help they’re being offered for treatment and recovery.

This training would be beneficial to you if you aspire to work in the field of addiction or are one of the following:


  • Therapist.

  • Addiction counsellor.

  • Admissions staff.

  • Treatment sales and marketing.

  • Facility manager.

  • Family therapist.

  • A treatment referral source.

We’ll be delivering a great deal of value in just 3 days, so come committed to invest in your professional development for yourself, for your agency and most importantly for your clients.

Your Trainers


Janique Svedberg and Ian Young are introducing their own International Intervention Training which is a combination of the invitational model and Tough Love model.

After hundreds of interventions around the world and endless of hours of comparing and discussing what works best, Janique and Ian decided to work together creating an Intervention Training that would work in all different areas of the world.

All countries have their own unique culture, community and especially family dynamic. As such, each family needs their individual plan to consider how the intervention will work most effectively. This training allows for this flexibility.

To be an International Interventionist takes an adjustment and specific understanding of the culture of the country you’re in.
There is also the need of working in a team as some countries will not allow mixed gender in a family meeting.

It’s also extremely important to understand how the culture see sobriety and recovery: what is acceptable and what is allowed.
