Deirdre Boyd of ARF has persuaded the president of the Association of Intervention Specialists, Rebecca Flood, to fly to London in early April to give Board Registered – BRI-I and BRI-II – training for those interested in this as a second career, those who wish to further their knowledge, and those who want their high-quality skills and experience accredited.
This will also help rehabs who expressed a desire for members of staff to train in interventions in order to convert desperate pleas from families over the telephone into concrete actions which could bring the reluctant family member with addiction problems into their treatment programme.
Accreditation protects clients and families and is a public recognition of training and high standards. It is also, because of these standards, a high-quality marketing tool.
