Intervention Specialists provides compassionate addiction counseling and Intervention Planning to families who are facing a crisis related to substance abuse.
Because there are different dynamics involved -- for example, alcohol abuse and food dependency must be handled differently -- we provide access to an assessment and planning service to meet your actual needs.
When appropriate, we may travel to your location to conduct the Intervention.
Our registered professionals are also compassionate and caring people who have unique insights and perspectives to share with your family.
Our services do not stop at Intervention; we continue follow-up care as long as it is needed.
Our goal is to help you recruit your loved one as an active, participating member of their own Recovery team.
We provide them with all of the support that they need to make the transition from substance dependency to a life of humane interdependency.
Self-abuse can only stop when we offer them something more powerful and more loving to take its place.

“My son was only 8 years old when I caught him smoking cigarettes. If I had known then what I know now, I may have watched him closer as he approached his teenage years and started hanging around some dysfunctional neighborhood kids.
When he landed himself in a lock-up, I didn't know where to turn. I consider myself very lucky to have stumbled on this program. As a single father with two jobs, I had no idea who took over raising my son until it was almost too late.
I am relieved that there are people out there who are really willing to help."
