The Interventionist will guide the entire intervention process, advocating for the family, friends, and individuals struggling with addictions and/or mental health challenges.

Insurance Questions?

I’d recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:

  • Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
  • Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
  • Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?
  • Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?
