Self Intervention

Her fragile fingers fumble inside her pockets, searching for warmth she cannot find. Overwhelmed and ambushed, she sits nervously. Surrounded by a circle of her loved ones, tears stream down their cheeks as they read letters filled with love, hope, and concern. Words she longed to hear her entire life finally spoken. Her pain realized.

But help does not always come. Loved ones do not always know what to do, what to say, how to act. Sometimes, we are so adept at hiding our behavior that no one notices that we may be in danger. Some of us isolate ourselves to conceal our struggle. For those of us who are not confronted, we must become our own advocates. We must stand up for ourselves.

Self-Intervention is having the courage to admit to yourself that there just may be a better way. It is listening to that inner voice, however quiet it may be, that cries out for your help. When you are recovered, it will be one of the things you look back on and are most proud of. The moment you decided to fight.

Finding the right treatment can be a daunting undertaking. Rader Programs include Inpatient, Outpatient, structured Daycare Sessions, Continuing Care and Family treatment programs to suit each individual's particular needs. You will act as an integral part of your treatment team; your voice will be heard. All you have to do, is reach out...

It's not your fault.
You're not alone.
We can help.
