Intervention

What Is An Intervention?

An Intervention, in all of its many forms, is an invitation for your loved one to find solutions for their substance abuse and/or mental health problems they are experiencing, seek appropriate treatment solutions and discover new healthy ways of living.

Every day, people are invited to change. Sometimes change occurs in hospitals, through the legal system, by being ask to leave school or at work.

Licensed professionals, social workers, lawyers, addiction specialists, mental health workers, and interventionists such as Dr. Stanger, invite clients to explore ways to improve their lives. As licensed professionals, we are always inviting our clients to explore ways to improve their lives. We empower clients to be the captains of their well-being.
