Alcohol and drug abuse intervention

On behalf of my family I just wanted to say thanks again for being such a responsive and dedicated group of people. For years my family and I have been begging my bachelor uncle to get help for his heavy alcohol and drug abuse problem. He had always refused to accept that he had a serious problem and needed professional help. Then one day after almost losing him to what could have been a fatal overdose, my mother did some research online and found your website. My mother was very surprised at how quickly we were able to set up an intervention for our uncle (her brother).

My mother told us that the interventionist had instructed for all us to get together for the intervention and realize that this probably would be our last chance of saving our uncle. The interventionist that came out that day was a stranger to us when he first arrived. But by the time he left he had unified our family as one front and successfully got through to my uncle and got him to agree to receive drug and alcohol treatment. He has been sober 8 months now after receiving his drug and alcohol rehab in Florida. I am writing because we are all eternally grateful to your website. You started the process that eventually gave us back the man we knew and loved before his alcohol and drug abuse problem changed him into someone else and nearly got him killed.
