Therapeutic intervention

ther·a·peu·tic/ /in•ter•ven•tion/

n. Noun

Therapeutic intervention is defined as, ‘medicine or therapy used to cure disease or pain by the involvement and intercession of proactive, therapeutic practice.’  i.e.: a person who suffers from addicted behaviors, would benefit from the therapeutic intervention of a residential treatment center. 

Therapeutic intervention varies in methods, and types of facility in which those methods are implemented. The most appropriate therapeutic solution for an individual person, depends on that person’s particular disorder, the severity of their malady, and their personal preference of how they would like to overcome the disorder. 

Therapeutic intervention is a varied and subjective term used by countless forms of psychiatric care. For this reason, it is crucial for parents of afflicted children to do thorough research of all potential, treatment options.
