What is the definition of "therapeutic intervention"?

Answer

A therapeutic intervention is an orchestrated effort by a group or by an individual to convince a person to seek help for a problem. The process of therapeutic intervention is most often referred to simply as an intervention.

Therapeutic interventions are most often used to convince a person to enter a rehab facility for a drug or alcohol addiction. However, an intervention is also used to address a person's need for counseling following a traumatic event. A therapeutic intervention is usually staged by the family and friends of a person. Occasionally, medical professionals are also present to offer support or counseling.
