Cocaine Alcohol Intervention
The minute you walked in the door for our pre-intervention meeting I felt some of the weight on my shoulders dissipate. You exuded such confidence and determination from the onset of our mission and as we got to know each other over the course of two days, your knowledge about addiction and how it affects the family dynamic made me feel fortunate to have you as part of my sisters recovery team.
You didn’t miss a beat. I was impressed by the manner with which you were able to bring an unwilling person to the pre-intervention meeting with a single phone call – after I had tried for a week. I couldn’t have done it without you. You certainly have a way with people. You get things done and you do them well. Aside from the actual intervention, you made yourself available to talk over the phone. Every time I called you with a question or concern you answered my call or called me back immediately – that was very comforting.
As a complement to your professionalism, you were very easy to talk to and gave my family and me great insight on how to begin the process for the early stages of our family’s healing, from a disease that has affected us for over 13 years.
The day after my sister entered treatment and I had flown back to my life in Houston, I once again was comforted after you called me to say that you were on your way to visit her. Just seeing a familiar face walking into the facility must have shown my sister that WOW … I am surrounded by people who care! I also appreciated you taking the time to talk with me about my feelings after such a stressful event. I had an emotional week after I got back in town – and you helped me make sense of it all.
You have given me a new outlook on addiction and have empowered me to help my sister beat this disease. You have given me hope of one day watching my sister live a healthy and fulfilling life and for that I am extremely grateful.
I will be visiting my sister in a couple of weeks. I spoke with her on the phone today and she sounded really well. Thank you for your guidance, wisdom, patience and diligence.
Please stay in touch.
With profound gratitude,
