Families need hope.
There was a time that even learned professionals and clinicians would tell a family their loved one wasn't ready for treatment. They hadn't "hit rock bottom". Your loved one doesn't have to hit their bottom.
Your loved one can be helped now with a professional, caring and successful intervention.
People who struggle with addiction are often in denial about their situation and unwilling to seek treatment. They may not recognize the negative effects their behavior has on themselves and others.
An intervention presents your loved one with a structured opportunity to make changes before things get even worse and can motivate someone to seek or accept help.
We facilitate interventions for loved ones who suffer from the effects of alcohol or drugs. We restore calm and give you guidance.
Addiction is a chronic illness with many symptoms. Often the person with the disease of addiction is the last to believe they need help. We will guide you and them through the process.
At R E Martin and Associates, we understand your pain. We are experts in intervention and addiction services.
An alcohol or drug abuse intervention is the first step to getting help for your loved one or business associate who suffers from an alcohol or drug addiction and is unable or unwilling to make a commitment to get help.
An intervention is a carefully planned process that may be done by family and friends, in consultation with a professional , or directed by an intervention professional (interventionist). It sometimes involves co-workers, clergy members or others who care about the person struggling with addiction.
Our services help your loved one to arrive at treatment, safely.
We transport patients to and from treatment. We also transport patients to outside legal, business and medical appointments while they are currently in treatment. Often times our loved ones have a court appearance that they must leave treatment to attend.
You can't change the direction of the wind, but you can adjust your sails.
Your loved ones deserve recovery. You can help change the direction of their life with an intervention.
Recovery is possible.

"And acceptance is the answer to all my problems today.
When I am disturbed,
It is because I find some person, place, thing, situation --
Some fact of my life -- unacceptable to me,
And I can find no serenity until I accept
That person, place, thing, or situation
As being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment.
Nothing, absolutely nothing happens in God's world by mistake.
Until I could accept my alcoholism, I could not stay sober;
Unless I accept life completely on life's terms,
I cannot be happy.
I need to concentrate not so much
On what needs to be changed in the world
As on what needs to be changed in me and in my attitudes."
Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th Edition p. 417
