Interventionists


Our preferred interventionists for addiction, alcoholism, and eating disorders. Our treatment center has decades of experience helping families and other concerned individuals plan and execute interventions.

Sometimes the only way that a man or woman who is suffering from addiction and related issues will participate in treatment is when loved ones surround him or her and undertake a well-executed intervention.

A call to Sober Living by the Sea at (866) 323-5609 is the first step in determining whether or not an intervention is necessary and appropriate. From that point forward, our dedicated admissions staff will patiently answer questions and educate the caller about the intervention process. We will make sure to get the caller in touch with an excellent interventionist in their area who can help train the participants and facilitate the type of intervention that will have the highest likelihood of motivating the person suffering from alcoholism or drug addiction to move toward receiving the appropriate treatment.

You Are Not Alone

Millions of people suffer from addiction and alcoholism. Therefore, many millions more are family members, loved ones, and co-workers of those who are chemically dependent. There is a way out and it begins by reaching out for help. Our 23 years of experience, large staff of addiction experts, and proven facilities will be of no benefit to the person who doesn’t pick up the phone and call us. We have created special pages which may help you realize that many before you have come up against this problem, and many will after:
