Job Title: Interventionist
Acting as an "Interventionist" you will perform intervention services (including transport escort) for at-risk adolescents and adults from one location to another (typically from their home to a treatment program). Safety is the number one concern. You will prepare the adult or adolescent mentally and emotionally for the expectations and challenges of the specific program they will be going to. Patience, active listening and compassionate honesty are all skills that must be utilized when dealing with parents, families and their loved ones. Interventionists do not have to accept all jobs that are presented to them. However, since all cases are received by Right Direction with little notice, Interventionists need to have a flexible schedule and be willing to work irregular hours.
