Why an intervention?

We recommend that you consider an intervention when you feel like you have “tried everything”.

Since 2008, Char Scott, LCSW, CADC, CIP has been conducting successful interventions to help those suffering from chemical dependency, eating disorders and mental health issues start the treatment process.

We know that the first step toward recovery begins with the family. Each significant family member needs to be heard and included in this process. Together, the family unit helps mobilize their loved one toward recovery.

Over the years we have learned the key to successful sobriety is more than abstinence. Let our experience and expertise help you put all the pieces of complete wellness together for successful, sober living.
