I am sorry this is delayed! Below is my testimonial. Please feel free to post all or some of it online.
My family and I reached out to Carmine Thompson in February of 2015 seeking help and assistance for my brother who is an alcoholic. His alcoholism was spiraling out of control for the past two to three years. Drinking his entire adult life, my brother became increasingly addicted to alcohol. My parents were prompted to seek professional help due to a series of calls and emails from my brother’s concerned friends and co-workers. Through a many recommendations, they found Carmine Thompson. Once they reached out to him, they felt like this crisis was becoming somewhat more manageable and hopeful. From day one of my mother’s contact with Carmine, she began to feel a peace about the situation. We didn’t know if my brother would accept the help of treatment and recovery, but we knew we were working with a professional who could guide us through this emotional event.
During the “intervention rehearsal,” Carmine explained to us how the intervention would work. In the rehearsal, we could immediately tell Carmine was experienced and compassionate towards us. He brought a wealth of wisdom to our meeting, and he helped to calm our nerves and anxiety. He gave us clear directions on what we were to do during the intervention. His plan allowed us to feel more at peace with confronting my brother.
Our entire experience with Carmine was only positive. We knew right away that Carmine cared about our family and most importantly, my brother. Carmine presents a very clear plan for the intervention. He is calm and focused in his demeanor. The day of the intervention proved to be a success. What Carmine prepared us for and predicted as a possible outcome happened. My brother decided to go to rehab, and without Carmine and his approach, I do not think he would have. We needed a professional whom my brother did not know. Adam was ready, and Carmine’s technique and approach worked. Adam surrendered to the intervention, and shortly thereafter began to pack his bags so he could head to recovery.
We are so thankful for Carmine’s time and energy, his diligence and empathy. My brother was killing himself with his alcohol consumption. Talking to him today, he sounds renewed and energized. He plans to stay the entire 90 days.
I recommend Carmine to anyone with a loved one who is suffering from a drug and alcohol addiction.
Thank you, Carmine, for being there for Adam.
