Breakfree Intervention skills training
Conducted by noted author, teacher and interventionist Brad Lamm, Certified Intervention Professional (CIP), BreakFree Intervention skills training equips participants to understand the history and methods of various addiction intervention models as compared to Brad Lamm’s proprietary invitation to change method, which pairs a loving family-infused intervention with a long-term family recovery curriculum.
This model is set alongside Kathleen Murphy’s action-method approach to trauma-informed treatment. Through education, case studies and role-play rich training, participants learn how to intervene using this cutting edge approach to initiating Family Recovery.

This training was a life-changing event for me and helped me to develop more passion to connect with and help those that are suffering and their families. Thanks Brad and Kathleen.
It is truly amazing that Brad is willing to share his expertise so comprehensively. This is a ground up to full speed training that will allow the student to hit the ground running with their own intervention enterprise. You won’t find a more valuable training from a true leader in the industry anywhere.
Absolutely incredible training that gave me added skills as well as the confidence to help others in a more positive and supportive way.
Brad Lamm is a consummate professional. His Breakfree Intervention skills training course was outstanding!

Brad and Kathleen are amazing and do such an amazing job at explaining and simplifying this process to make it easily digestible.
Breakfree is a love-based intervention training that will teach you a new way of approaching families and loved ones in times of crisis.
I am 100% better prepared to help families in crisis.
I am a much better prepared interventionist after taking this course.
I am thrilled to have been part of Brad Lamm’s intervention training. The valuable tools learned will enable me to be a better interventionist in the field.

The BreakFree Intervention skills training is designed to meet multiple skill levels while advancing each participant’s knowledge base. From beginner to expert, everyone learns from being in the same room together for three days, exploring best practices and new ideas. The classroom is comprised of a wide range of professional backgrounds, including those interested in making a career change, new interventionists, professionally certified interventionists, and more recently clinicians, social workers, marketing and outreach professionals and a variety of others working in the addiction, recovery and treatment fields.
- Beginners looking to get their feet wet as an interventionist learn valuable information from which to build their foundation knowledge and benefit from the experience level of the room, while learning how to practically apply information to the business of interventions.
- More advanced professionals benefit by participating in conversations about best practices while new ideas are shared and explored, and learning the BreakFree Intervention method. By applying existing knowledge and experience to the new approach to intervening, practical application methods are explored and practiced.
- Alumni who attend the training benefit from revisiting the training topics as well as being leaders in conversations, sharing practical application of theories, and influencing role-plays and best practice conversations.
