Time is of the essence when considering an intervention. Consultation can provide you with options surrounding your circumstances. Please allow you and your family the best possible chance. Call us today and schedule a consult.
At this time an assessment is conducted with a skilled, professional facilitator to determine what course of action is appropriate for your situation. This is the first step we take to prepare all who need to be involved. If distance is a concern for some individuals, conference calls can be utilized to include those individuals.
Our rehearsal is a time to prepare and process the many feelings that accompany the act of love that translates through the intervention. We remain focused and committed to preserving the dignity of the addicted person while building trust that our next step will bring the opportunity for positive change.
The intervention is a structured, solution-focused process. It gives the family and loved ones an opportunity to present observations and concerns regarding the addict’s behavior in a caring, objective and non-judgmental manner. The intervention is designed to help the identified person acknowledge destructive behaviors and accept treatment. If the individual accepts help, he or she is immediately escorted to an appropriate treatment facility.
While interventions can be intense, the family will receive continued support. Guidance will be provided to continue moving the family in a positive direction.

A gifted Interventionist, Carol Lawyer is a true asset to the profession.

It is a privilege and honor to work with Carol and observe firsthand her level of integrity and skill. – Jeannette Cutshaw, LMFT, CSAT
Carol Lawyer loves what she does. She helps people change their lives. Our family realized that we were watching our husband and father kill himself one martini at a time. The deterioration in his physical health was impossible to ignore and gave us the courage, at last, to attempt an intervention. That is when we found Carol. She helped us to understand what is required in an intervention, helped us plan, prepare, structure and carry out the process. Her guidance and support was the calm we needed in the chaos that surrounded us as we dealt with the reality of the addiction in the head of our family and its implications for each of us in the family relationship. Her calm and the structure during the intervention itself is, I am convinced, the reason that we succeeded in getting our loved one to treatment appropriate for him. A year later, Carol continues to care for our family and has been supportive with her counsel as we lived through the rocky first year of recovery. She offered help with identifying treatment possibilities for our youngest child in his recent relapse. Carol not only loves what she does, she loves her clients. I am most grateful that she helped me to change my life for the better. ~ MCK
When we realized that our son was losing control and becoming more and more immersed in his drug use, we were terrified. We were witnessing the slow and steady destruction of a kind and loving son and we knew that having another “talk” with him would only frustrate us and drive him further away. We will be forever grateful that Carol’s name was given to us by an addiction psychiatrist. Once we told her our story, she used compassion and understanding to guide us through the intervention process. We were in uncharted territory, but had the overwhelming comfort of having Carol prepare us in every way for this most transformative event. From our very first meeting, through the preparation and rehearsal, and then intervention itself, Carol provided direction and endless patience during a totally foreign process for us. Our son is thriving and Carol continues to provide support and advice to our family in times of uncertainty. She steered us through a very dark period with her warmth, insight, and authenticity. Carol will forever be viewed by our family as playing a pivotal role in each of our recoveries. – Kim
Carol – I just wanted to thank you so much for your help with Michael. I really think that speaking with you helped for all of us to realize the seriousness of his situation and gave us all the push to get him the help he needed. Without your help I think that myself and everyone else would have been too scared or nervous to take the step and approach Michael with our concerns, and it certainly would not have gone so smoothly without your guidance and presence… Without your suggestion for treatment centers, we may not have found (tx center), and who knows if this process would be going as well as it it. I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate what you did to help and what a huge difference I think that it will make in all of our lives. – Client
