Alcoholism and drug dependence do not discriminate – men, women, and children from every type of background and from every part of the country are all susceptible to having their use develop into abuse and dependence.
At one time there was a belief that people could not be helped unless they “hit bottom” but that has changed. Research has proven that a person may be willing to seek treatment when an intervention is staged and they are addressed in a loving, non-threatening way by their family and friends. Interventions are also emotionally and psychologically beneficial to the user’s loved ones that participate in the process.
DANZIG Interventions was founded to help educate families about the disease of addiction, to consult on the proper treatment for their loved one, and to facilitate the process to get the user to acknowledge their problem and agree to get help.
DANZIG Interventions provides escort services to ensure that when your loved one leaves treatment that they have the relapse prevention support they need to get them safely home. We are also available to consult on services for sober living housing programs and can escort your loved one directly from treatment to that location.
To learn more about our intervention, escort, and treatment consulting services, please call 207.310.0104.
