 Guided Interventions

A critical service that is becoming increasingly important, this program was designed to help families understand the dynamics of addiction and empower them when a family member or close friend needs help. Completed over several weeks, it allows families to work at their own pace as we provide awareness, education and counselling. During the course of this service, families prepare themselves so they can reveal to their loved ones on how this disease has affected their lives and who they have become because of it. Interventions are conducted with love and empathy, not anger and aggression. Many families experience great relief and optimism after going through the process. At Revitalize Lives, we support families and give them hope that an intervention is a means to an end of a chaotic and distrustful lifestyle.

Service fee: $155.00/hr
