The intervention process offers an opportunity to challenge popular beliefs and myths surrounding addictive behavior. The biggest myth is that a dependent person must hit rock bottom and lose it all before he/she will accept help. Unfortunately, all too often this is the point where addiction leads to serious consequences such as legal problems, relationship issues, job issues, health issues, and high-risk behaviors. Intervention is a method of rising above that and setting positive goals to avoid these life-altering consequences.

An intervention is emotionally complex and impacts families and friends which can place strains on the dynamics of both relationships. A professional Interventionist offers insight and knowledge to help achieve a positive outcome.

Our trained professionals here at Spirit Wolf are in recovery from all forms of addictions and addictive behavior. This allows them to interact with the addictive person from mutual understanding, furthering chances for success.

Spirit Wolf does not believe in ultimatums, threats, or an all-or-nothing approach process. We instead approach each situation from the standpoint of honesty, love, and family; encouraging the client to seek treatment. This alleviates BLAME, SHAME, AND GUILT and begins the healing process with everyone.

Our foundational program is a client-centered, strengths-based treatment approach for addiction recovery and other mental health challenges.

Active in Recovery (AIR) utilizes the neuroscience of physical movement with intense physical exercise to induce neuroregeneration and neuroplasticity within the brains of the participants.

This is all done in a team based community setting. The effect of this process in the brain will support an improved capacity to handle stress, a reduction in symptoms of anxiety and depression, improved cognition, social engagement, self-image, and self-esteem.

iTMS induces neuromodulation. Neuromodulation is the process of resetting the brain frequency to the same rate in all functional areas of the brain.

An electroencephalogram (EEG) measures electrical patterns of the brain. These patterns reflect cortical activity and are commonly known as brainwaves. We use quantitative EEG (q-EEG), also referred to as brain mapping, and an electrocardiogram (EKG) which maps the electrical activity of the heart, to further understand an individual's brain activity.

An EEG reflects the current metabolic and attention state of the brain, changing according to consciousness, alertness, and neurological state. Obtaining an EEG recording is painless and non-invasive, and takes about 20 minutes.

We are seeing a trend in EEG’s in patients with addiction and alcoholism.
