Caring is the Priority at Every Step

Our empathetic addiction interventionists use evidenced-based strategies to connect individuals struggling with substance abuse addiction to an appropriate solution. We know the prescription for addiction is appropriate love and concern.

The goal of an intervention is not to coerce the person with addiction to go to treatment; it is to change the family dynamic. A history of attempts that are not working must be disrupted in order to pierce the addiction cocoon. The aim is to address fears and manipulation by introducing healthy boundaries and trusted solutions that eliminate enabling behaviors.

We have developed a 10-step approach to addiction intervention that works. Download our infographic to learn more.


We've heard all of the worries and doubts of families who are timid about a drug or alcohol intervention for their loved one: 

  • "What if they feel ambushed?"
  • "What if they feel betrayed?"
  • "What if they get angry and leave?"
  • "What if it puts them over the edge and makes things worse?"

Addiction is a chronic, progressive disease. It's not going anywhere, and it gets worse over time. By entrusting proven solutions, your loved one has a chance.
