Treatment Transport Making sure they arrive safelyOur personable and experienced treatment escorts ensure that your loved one gets to and from treatment safely. Our clinical transportation service organizes the complete travel and won't leave the addict until they're safely connected with the treatment center staff. The treatment escort is available 24/7 for any progress updates to concerned parties.
Sober Companion An excellent option for sustained sobrietyFor some clients, treatment isn't enough and they require sustained personal attention during their early recovery. Our sober companions are in recovery themselves and are able to guide a client through the challenging time of early recovery. Our sober companions accompany a client throughout the day, to encourage healthy habits and lifestyle changes.

What Happens Next?
Online Face-to-Face Meeting and Assessment
The first step is a thorough evaluation of the addict's situation to ensure we are all well prepared and have the information we need to prepare for the day of the intervention.
Before we come out to you, there will be the opportunity to get to know each other first during a low-pressure, online face-to-face meeting.
After our preliminary discussions and information gathering, our experienced team will prepare a well-crafted intervention plan, with custom-tailored treatment options for a caring, understanding, and well structured rehab environment so that the addict feels comfortable to make that critical leap of faith into recovery.
Together we will review the entire plan, treatment options, set expectations, alert all to potential challenges and have contingencies in place.
Day of the Intervention
The day of the intervention is always a challenging one for both the addict, and the family. By now, we have created a clear plan of action, an intervention team is in place, and travel and facility planning is complete. If the addict is reluctant - as is often the case - our carefully crafted contingency plans give us well-rehearsed options.

I'm a Professional Dual Diagnosis Interventionist. I provide services for all those impacted by mental illness & substance abuse with caring, comprehensive, & cost-effective solutions nationwide.
I have appeared on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, NBC & ABC News, the Huffington Post & ChooseHelp.com, but most importantly I have performed hundreds of successful professional dual diagnosis Interventions nationwide.
I consider myself first and foremost to be a philosopher of mind. My professional counseling credentials are vehicles by which I can practice my own version of Socratic midwifery, which is to say, not to lay an authoritarian trip on my clients, but rather to facilitate the birth of their own self-realization. The instruments that I employ in the service of such midwifery are derived from the disciplines of philosophy, religion, psychology, and hypnosis.
Raised in a NJ suburb of NYC by liberal Jewish parents, I was free to explore the outer world, which was rich with fields, brooks, and woodlands. As a schoolboy I was also encouraged to experiment, and my first chemistry sets gave way to an expanding home laboratory in which I conducted many experiments in chemistry, biology, and LASER holography. College brought a whole new variety of explorations. The physical, social, psychological, and spiritual processes that I became intensely preoccupied with in college fueled my passion for self-discovery. I entered and completed educations in a theological seminary and in graduate school. These important stages of my development were just the beginning of my life. While love of learning has been my constant companion, I realized along the way that I had a need to share the process of self-actualization in order to help others. My particular contribution to the mental health profession of counseling draws from depth-psychology as well as from existentialist schools, from both Eastern and Western schools on the philosophy of mind. I am not a stranger to the physical disciplines of neuroscience, but the philosophy of counseling, based in education, rather than a medical model, does not treat the client as a patient. That is to say, despite physical correlates to states of mind, unhappy people should not be defined by whatever pathology from which they are suffering. The therapeutic assumption upon which I proceed is based on acknowledgement of the client's essential wholeness, not on a diagnostic term for his/her dis-ease. Individuals are NOT their disease.
