Our non-confrontational, invitational approach to intervention is proven effective and allows for a family to lovingly and compassionately encourage a loved one to seek help for a substance addiction, mental health disorder or process addiction.
We have developed relationships with wilderness programs, residential treatment centers, therapeutic boarding schools and traditional boarding schools and often we have inside knowledge of these options.
