I am a certified drugs and alcohol interventionist.
Interventions are when family, friends or co-workers attempt to convince someone to get treatment for drug and/or alcohol abuse. Drug intervention programs are available but require someone like you to take the first step.
I know from personal experience that denial is a symptom of the disease itself. Therefore it's often difficult to get the loved one to accept help. Help for alcoholics and drug addiction starts with your decision to learn how to stage an intervention. I prepare your team for the intervention and help when needed at the actual intervention. Thorough preparation is the key to a successful intervention!
I am in successful recovery from alcoholism. A few years after I got sober, I decided I wanted to work in the recovery field. Prior to this I taught high school English in Bucks County, Pa. I spent many thousands of hours completing the necessary training and gaining the required experience in this new occupation. I have received my certifications in the recovery field from the highly respected Pennsylvania Certifications Board.
I live in Newtown (Bucks County), Pennsylvania. I am happily married and have two wonderful adult daughters and sons-in-law. I have one precious granddaughter and a handsome grandson. And let's not forget our dog Charlie.
