Family Interventions Counseling

When the whole family grows, each member is better off.

Family Consulting usually originates from telephone call from a family member concerned about their loved one’s addictions to drugs and/or alcohol, mental health or trauma and /or self-destructive behaviors.

Working in the addiction and mental health field for over 27 years, it is very clear, families are in allot of pain and held emotionally hostage by their loved one’s pain.

Family Consultation can be informal or formal professional approach to help families figure next best steps and to feel hopeful, they are putting action into finding solutions by involving a professional without feeling the pressured to fully commit to a full intervention process.

If a family are committed to move forward with a full intervention, CanAm Interventions can help facilitate a family intervention. If your family is unsure of what to do or what steps to take, it is best to schedule a family consultation meeting to gain insight from other family members and hear recommendations from a expert that specializes in dealing with untreated patients.

At CanAm Interventions, we strongly believe meeting families using a formal or information assessment process such as; meeting in your family home, or in a office setting, video conference calls, or group telephone conference calls, for 2-3 hours.
