Hiring a trained interventionist in Canada and the United States @ CanAminterventions

Patricia Pike of CanAm Interventions spent last week in New Orleans attending a three day comprehensive intervention training. As a senior interventionist working in the Addiction and Mental health field over 25 years and 9 years as a family interventionist. Ms.Pike believes strongly in continuing education for professionals.


When working with family dynamics and business organizations, it is imperative to be alternative in my thinking , to meet clients and address their needs.

if you are looking for a professional interventionist that you want to invite into your home to help sort out complex issues such as addictions or mental health and help your family to make changes. It is imperative that you look to a highly trained professional.

Many families are in crisis at the time of hiring a professional which can be a very stressful time. It also can bring much freedom  to your family, to start the process of family healing and creating a new story  for your family.

Taking the Arise Training at Tulane University in New Orleans was another professional moment, learning new skills to better help families.

If you or your loved one are seeking professional support, you are reach out to Patti.pike@canaminterventions.com

Canada Addiction. @ canaminterventions #servicesincanada

My theory of dealing with entrenched addictions, mental health and poverty, is coming from healthy attachment model providing a humanistic sense of safety , Secure place of belonging.

At CanAm Interventions , CEO Patricia Pike Addiction Specialist and Interventionist  has intervened on many resistant, untreated folks , the trick is coming from a place of Love,  providing a structure plan to break down the cycle of resistance for Addictive behaviors. Patricia is also over 26 years in her own personal recovery from a long terms opiate addiction from a young age, someone that been there and lived the life of addiction, she knows full well, the nature of addiction.

The importance of building a basis needs and foundation of resources without enabling can be what implements changes in a persons life such as;,using short & long term case management, treatment  planning for folks with chemical dependency and mental health.  Along with providing access to treatment on demand , rent control , low income resources such as; more access to lowering cost for bus passes, ( all of this is very costly in Vancouver ), detox on demand.


Canada needs to look at changing the  criminal laws/ system, related to drug possession and trafficking illegal drugs . In the 1970’s, sentencing for possession /traffickers was automatically 7 years in prison . In the 1980’s , it was harder to obtain drugs because it was not as free on the streets because of the criminal laws that were enforced.

I am not a big believer of putting people in jails or prisons, however someone needs to take responsibility for addicts suffering and dying from overdoses, the drug lords are getting rich on drug sales.
Mandatory treatment in jails is essential for the “suffering addict”, or drug courts need more recognition for case management and recovery coaches  can be an important Part of providing  resources to help with transition from jails, detox. It is important to have more professional services such as; psychologist, psychiatrist, mental health treatment modalities, not having strictly 12 step model approaches.

I believe strongly that not all untreated persons will recover from 12 step model approach/some folks will need the alternative treatment approaches dealing with basic relational connections and services for complex trauma,.

It is important to acknowledged that all professionals and services  Make a difference in all approaches to help the suffering untreated persons.

The cycle of unworthiness in Untreated Addiction and Unhealthy Relational Attachments @canaminterventions.com @interventionscanada.com

The cycle of unworthiness. Does it start from the birth of a child?

If parents don’t have the family resources of love, belonging and safety, it makes allot of sense that a child brought into the world, would start their young life with that same type of attachment to a negative sense of self.
#attachmentdisorders relates to not having internal connections with self or others. It is very common for persons that have a hard time loving themselves, to use drugs or alcohol, find unhealthy relationships, and develop complex trauma and/or mental health disorders.MaslowsHierarchyOfNeeds_svg
At CanAm Interventions, Patricia Pike CEO of both CanAm Interventions and Interventionscanada, is very familiar with attachment disorders. She has helped supported many people in the last 25 years with #untreatedaddictions,#complextrauma, #attachmentdisorders.

She’s worked in Vancouver, British Columbia for over 14 years #downtowneastside, San Francisco #tenderlion for many years, working with a diverse population of people from all walks of life. Patricia a native of Canada with dual citizenship, she moved to the United States 11 years ago, starting a private practice, in Marin County, San Francisco, CA and Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, travelling between both countries. #whatagift.

She has much experience working with all types of persons from entrenched street addicts, as well as with movies stars, professional musicians, professionals, and venture capitalists. It is very clear to Patricia that all of these folks have same thing in common, disconnection issues, self destruction of their own lives and hurting persons closest to them. The cycle of unhealthy attachments that creates a internal void of disconnection/low self worth.
