A credential for professionals who have the primary role of facilitation and participation in substance use disorder interventions. Intervention professionals guide families, friends, and others through an intervention process where the individual is encouraged to enter treatment. The CIP is not a marketer or recruiter for a treatment facility; rather they are a front-line professional who is directly engaging an individual and family to help guide them to treatment and is a part of the recovery team.
