Virtual Intervention Workshop When you see a loved one choose alcohol or other drugs above all else, you might begin to lose sight of the person you once knew. But the person you love is still there.

If you are concerned about a loved one’s alcohol or drug use, call to learn how an intervention could help guide your loved one into treatment. Our recovery experts offer an intervention education seminar for adults by appointment. This seminar is free to the public and includes educational materials about the signs and symptoms of substance abuse as well as what’s involved in planning and conducting a successful intervention.
