The ARISE model was developed by Dr. Judi Miller, who is a world renowned expert in addiction interventions. Dr. Miller has been working in the addiction field for over 30 years, and her research has shown that interventions using the ARISE model are much more successful than traditional confrontational interventions.

Taken from The ARISE® intervention and continuum of care by José Luis Martinez:

ARISE® Intervention and Continuing Care is a process developed to help individuals and families dealing with addiction (either substances or process/behavioural addictions) or any chronic, relapsing mental or physical illness. ARISE® is a process, not an event, and the primary goal is long-term recovery and healing for individual and family. Results of a clinical trial in the United States through the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) resulted in 83% of addicted individuals entering treatment in three weeks and 96% in 6 months. Several real world replication studies showed 61% sober by the end of the first year, with an additional 10% using less.
