A drug and alcohol interventionist is a trained professional that has years of experience in helping families and their loved ones find solutions to addiction.
An interventionist can persuade an addict to say yes to treatment and help families establish boundaries that will help everyone involved start on the road to healing.
An interventionist’s roles are many, but the main objective is to break down the walls of denial your loved one has put up around their addiction. Interventionists know that admitting they truly have a problem is the first step on the journey of recovery.
