Working Together to Change the Things We Can

Does someone you love need an intervention?

Having battled our own addictions, we understand.Our mission is to provide quality interventions by delivering professional and compassionate services to those who are suffering.

Recovery is Possible
Take the First Step Now!

Family plays a crucial role in the recovery process.

An addict or alcoholic may not be willing to accept that they need help. Sometimes it may be necessary for a family to intervene. Our intervention professionals work extensively with families and provide them with the necessary education to help them understand that their loved one suffers from an illness.

Our goal is to change your entire family’s dynamic in order to support your loved one throughout the process by focusing on preparing you for the intervention and whatever the outcome may be.

We provide drug and alcohol intervention services for families and their loved ones in need.

Intervention services Include:

  1. Free initial phone consultation.
  2. Assisting in guiding the family towards the best fitting rehabilitation facility for the potential alcoholic or addict. We have no affiliation with any facilities, we only provide the family with options. The final decision is theirs. 
  3. Arranging and conducting Family Education Day Training, to include an in-depth analysis of the family’s roles and communication skills: before, during, and after the intervention.  
  4. Conducting the Intervention.
  5. Escorting the potential client to a predetermined treatment facility where the intake team can conduct a handoff.
  6. Facilitating communications with the treatment facility, pending a release of information. 
  7. Up to 3 post-intervention follow-up sessions, at the family’s discretion. More sessions can be added at the family’s request.

Do you need help with someone struggling with addiction? Don’t know what to do? Don’t know where to begin? Don’t know what help is available?

As one would expect, the decision to conduct an intervention for a family member’s addiction is a very difficult one. Even more so, is the multitude


Individuals uniting to produce an effect greater than the sum of their efforts

Seeing the pain addiction causes families is heart-wrenching.

Feeling the love families sustain is heartwarming.

Observing a family’s willingness to learn and change is humbling.

Uniting families in an intervention is awe-inspiring.

Seeing the strength of a family united in recovery is Synergistic!

Frequently Asked Questions

If we are a good fit to help, we will assist in finding a treatment center that best suits the needs of your loved one. We will also conduct Family Education day, the Intervention, transportation of your family member to treatment, and multiple post intervention check-ins with the family as needed.

Our initial consultation is free. After the consultation, we determine our prices depending on the scope of the work and the family’s needs.

We will do our best to try and guide your loved one to treatment, but the fact is, they can still say no. This is why so much of our focus is on the family and trying to prepare them for any possible outcome. We don’t define a successful intervention as to whether your loved one goes to treatment. Instead, we define a successful intervention as a family coming together and no longer allowing their loved one to systematically destroy the lives of the family or themselves.

We don’t know. It’s not for us, or you, to decide. This is their journey. We are just here to narrow their options, try and facilitate a bottom, and guide them towards recovery.
