Arise Intervention

Though much less well-known than the Johnson model, the Arise intervention model is also quite common. The Arise model uses a multi-phase family-oriented approach and is considered less confrontational than the Johnson model.

The 3 Phases of the Arise Intervention Model

Phase 1: In phase 1, the family of the addicted person attends group therapy sessions. The addicted person will be informed that these meetings are happening and will be asked to participate in some or all of them. This phase is completed either when the addict enters treatment or after five or six meetings.

Phase 2: In phase 2, the goal is that the addicted individual will enter an outpatient or inpatient meeting while the family attends 12-step meetings, like Al-anon, or other support groups. If the addicted person is still refusing treatment, the family is encouraged to move forward with phase 2, in the hopes that this will further spur the addicted person to action.

Phase 3: Phase 3 begins when the treatment ends. The family and recovering addict will still attend counseling as needed to maintain the recovery.

The Arise model boasts an 83% success rate, but the success of any intervention model or treatment program will depend on whether it meets the unique and specific needs of the addicted individual.
