Scott Chittle is our Interventionist. He has over twenty years of experience with dealing with individuals with drug and alcohol dependency. He was the lead intake coordinator for a dual diagnosis drug & alcohol treatment center in northern Michigan. In this position, his main function was to talk with families about their situation and help guide them to the best possible solution.
After families became comfortable with Scott, many asked him to perform an intervention for their loved one. For quite some time, Scott suggested others for this very important task.
He then began to provide families with written material to help guide the families through the necessary steps so that families might host their own intervention. Although this helped many families, others felt it impossible to even begin the process without outside help. Scott then began formally hosting drug and alcohol interventions for families throughout all of North America.
Scott wants you all to know that he is not a
psychiatrist, psychologist, therapist or a counselor. He is however, above average (93.33% success rate) at not only getting your loved one to accept treatment, but getting them to go willingly. He does have a bachelors degree from the University of Michigan.
An interventionist has little power in the actual intervention itself. The interventionist is there to prepare the family for and mediate the intervention. They are there to show the family all that is needed to get their loved one to accept treatment. That is it. An intervention is no place for counseling. It is a place and time for the family to come together as a unified front to request that their loved one accepts help. Period.
Scott would be more than happy to tell you his personal story about a loved one that has suffered for many years and how he has been intimately involved.
Treatment Location Service (Free Of Charge)
When you request our help to find the best center for your loved one, we can only look at the situation through your eyes. In other words, given your situation, what would we do if we were you?
Each family has different restrictions. Usually there are financial restrictions. There are ofter travel restrictions. More importantly than either of these two, is the need to find the "right" center within these restrictions.
Many families fail miserably in this area. Our advise is by no means absolute. We are simply listening and suggesting. The family of coarse makes the ultimate decision. If you are considering a place and would like to get a third party opinion, we would be happy to look into it for you.
Every center you call will tell you that their center is right for your loved one. That couldn't be further from the truth.
