The world often finds out quickly that a well-known Performing Artist or Actors have been compelled to seek treatment for substance or behavioral addiction. However, there are many high profile and celebrity patients who do not seek addiction treatment precisely because of fear of publicity or perceived lack of confidentiality. These addiction sufferers may not be celebrities whose names are known to the press and who are idolized by fans, but instead, they are often powerful executives, successful business people and professionals, and other community leaders who have much to lose if their addiction becomes known to the people among whom they work and socialize.

Celebrity Intervention & Addiction Treatment options therefore must be wholly confidential, so that colleagues, clients and even family members are not made aware that a patient is being treated for addiction. These treatment programs must also allow the patient to continue his or her normal activities as much as possible, so that either outpatient therapy or intensive short-term inpatient therapy are the best options for celebrity and high-profile patients.
Intervention is defined as “a disruption of the family system”. Which means, an investigation into the past and present issues of the family system that can contribute to a person’s addictive behavior. For many families, the issues may be big or small, but the discovery of these issues lead to a healing process for everyone involved. Holly Conklin uses an eclectic combination of techniques and views each intervention as a unique and different situation putting her personal style of intervention to work. “I find that my style of intervention is less invasive to the family and the addict”. She explores family ties, emotional ties, relationship strengths and weaknesses, identifies the enabler(s) and the hard liner(s), looks at the obstacles encountered by family members and digs in to find where everything went wrong in the addict’s life. In doing so she is able to vet out the major issues within a family unit and help everyone included, come together as a team. The “team” can then work towards helping the affected individual.
