CanAm Interventions facilitated an three day intervention training at Together We Can Treatment Program in Vancouver, BC, Canada November 2017. I had the honor of taking the CANAM Interventions Training and Skills 101 Certificate course with Patti in Vancouver last year. I say honor because Patti’s knowledge, experience and professionalism made it one of the most useful courses I have ever attended. Patti’s intensive program prepared me to confidently and successfully run an intervention. I am grateful that I have been able to expand my skills and can offer families more help to start their healing process. Thanks Patti!!!

Patti’s intervention training was professional and informative. Many other Interventionist Trainers really do not tend to the needs of their students without some kind of fee but I witnessed first hand how Patti truly cares for the work being done in the field and her willingness to mentor individuals for the good of the entire industry.I highly recommend her intervention training to those who really want to hone their skills and gain not only a wonderful mentor, but friend and colleague for life.

Vancouver, BC Canada, 2018 ,

I was so happy to participate in these valuable teachings. Patricia offers a wealth of knowledge from decades of experience. Connecting with the vast network of amazing minds in the practice of addictions recovery and intervention, and gaining new advice and techniques, I came away with an abundance of inspiration and knowledge to help better my practice.
I have participated in many interventions, and worked with recovering addicts for over twenty years. But by taking this course, my training was brought to a higher level and I now feel more prepared and informed than ever.
If you are someone who works in addictions recovery, the mental health field, or are interested in this work, I suggest this opportunity to partake in CanAm’s Interventionist Training. Patricia is a wonderful example of success in her field. I am so grateful to have learned from her as she continues to raise the bar of professionalism in this practice.
Thank you, Patricia!

Vancouver, BC, Canada 2017,

A few months ago, I decided to take an intervention training course with Patti Pike. Prior to this training, I had no idea about the different models that are used during an intervention. I really didn’t know much, other than how to relate to the identified patient.
Patti’s course was for 3 days and was extremely informative. I now know about different models, ethics, marketing, genograms, how to write a contract, etc. I can honestly say I have had several successful interventions since this course. I feel that anyone working in recovery would highly benefit by participating in a training with Patti. I look forward to future training!!

Patti’s intervention training was very informative. Patti was generous in sharing both her clinical practices and her business practices, and how both aspects – the intervention itself and operating an intervention business – must be equally developed. I recommend Patti’s training to anyone who wants to facilitate interventions, as well as other professionals who work with families in crisis such as outreach representatives and admissions counselors. I look forward to continue working with Patti and am grateful for her teaching style and expertise.

Hi Patricia,I wanted to thank you for the CanAm Intervention training you facilitated in LA a couple of months ago. I learned how to be more effective in the facilitation of an intervention. I learned about the different methods/styles of interventions and when each is more appropriate to use. I also learned a bunch more on the business side. From marketing to providing important forms to help manage the process. Finally, I appreciated your genuine desire to provide ethical training for ethical practices in our field. Thank you,

Patti’s intervention training was professional and informative. As I have trouble talking about finances most times with people who need help Patti gave me some really helpful techniques that make the conversation flow and more seamless. Many other Interventionist Trainers really do not tend to the needs of their students without some kind of fee but I witnessed first hand how Patti truly cares for the work being done in the field and her willingness to mentor individuals for the good of the entire industry. I highly recommend her intervention training to those who really want to hone their skills and gain not only a wonderful mentor, but friend and colleague for life.

I attended the intervention training facilitated by Patricia Pike in 2017. It was an inspiring experience for me, I learned so much information on family systems and the various modalities when doing interventions. Patricia is very knowledgeable and her delivery on this subject was top notch and very professional. I highly recommend this training to anyone who has a desire to help families and their loved ones.
