There really is hope...
Addiction can be a life and death matter. As an interventionist, I named my business There is Hope Interventions because I believe there is always a way forward for families trying to help a loved one caught in the grip of addiction. I assist families in finding their next step forward. Often that next step involves doing an intervention with a professional interventionist. When it does, it is my great privilege to help families work to get their loved one into treatment and onto the path of recovery.
An intervention is characterized by love and courage. It need not be a power encounter or an exercise in humiliation. The addict is not forced into treatment against his/her will. Instead, we lead with love, extending an invitation to get the help they need.
Many years ago, I was the subject of an intervention. Because of this I have great empathy and some insight with the clients I work with. My goal is to make the intervention as positive, loving, respectful and honoring as possible. At the same time, I am committed to it being effective and as powerful/confrontational as it needs to be. Striking the right balance is an important component to an effective strategy.
Thank you for your interest in my services. Please contact me if you have any questions or if I can be of assistance to you.
