Below are some commonly asked questions and answers about ICM Associates and some od the services we provide. If you have additional questions please do not hesitate to reach out to us!
Q. What is the difference between family intervention and executive intervention?
A. In a family Intervention, it is the family that retains intervention services (the identified person of concern may be an executive). In an executive Intervention, it is the company, firm, or agency which retains intervention services.
Q. Does ICM do quick turnaround interventions, can you facilitate an intervention in a few days?
A. While many of our colleagues are able to provide quick turn around interventions, ICM requires a minimum of 2 weeks of working with the participants ahead of an intervention meeting. Our model and our approach is very family systems oriented and it’s critical for us to be able to adequately prepare and plan for the intervention. We find that in our experience the more organized and prepared we all are, the better chance for a positive outcome.
Q. Is ICM contracted or working with a particular rehab or program?
A. No, ICM does not professionally align or affiliate with any one program, agency, or professional. We have always maintained neutrality in this area so as to refer a client to a program that is the best match for them personally.
Q. Is there a specific governing body that regulates interventionists?
A. Not at this time. However, the Pennsylvania Certification Board does have a voluntary credentialing certificate which offers a CIP (Certified Intervention Professional). Those interventionists that have a CIP credential have provided documentation attesting to their specific education and training requirements.
Q. Is Clinical Care Management counseling or therapy? Is it the same as recovery/sober coaching or sober companions?
A. No, Clinical Care Managers do not provide counseling or therapy services to clients, or is it intended to replace them. CCM serves as a practical adjunct to therapy, and complements the clients experience. Clinical Care Managers are different from recovery /sober coaches or companions as services are more clinically driven, and clients do not always have addiction issues.
Q. Where are your offices?
A. The majority of the work we do with our clients occur outside of an office, so we tend to meet with clients in alternate and natural , yet private setings. This may include meeting at a clients home, a park, a coffee shop, etc.
Q. What types of challenges do your clients have?
A. The Clinical Care Management Model as developed by Kate Caravella in 2000 can be effectively applied
to most situations where an individual has a variety of life systemic or complicated needs. Most often,
our clients have personal histories of substance use addiction, process addictions, medical illness, mental
health disorders, eating disorders, and trauma. Many have co-occurring disorders.
