Chris has an incredible track record of success advising families on how to motivate their loved one to get sober.
First, we provide a thorough assessment of your loved one's substance use problem.
Then we work together to form the best plan for you and your family.
We both want your loved one to stay sober.
But staying sober isn't possible unless we get them sober first.
That's what we achieve with the intervention process.
Why Choose Me?
I'm the Head Substance Abuse Counselor and Interventionist for the New York City Fire Department. I became a firefighter in 2008 and wanted to help my peers struggling with substance abuse. As you can imagine, drinking isn't just acceptable for firefighters, it's encouraged. I became the go-to guy to speak with proud, hard-headed, heels-dug-in firefighters who didn't believe they had a problem. I've heard every imaginable excuse and objection. Many were ambivalent about getting sober. Some were outright defiant and resistant. But repeatedly, most would agree to get help after one session. For the FDNY and in private practice, I've convinced hundreds of people to get help for addiction. My formal training in the Intervention process was with Earl Hightower. Earl has over 35 years experience and still provides supervision on my cases. This means you receive unparalleled guidance and direction to support you as you navigate your loved one's journey from addiction to recovery.
Both of my parents were in recovery from addiction. I've seen recovery work for them and countless others my entire life. I struggled with alcohol and cocaine addiction. I know the pain of wanting to stop but not being able to. I couldn't stop even when I KNEW where to go for help! Today, I have 14 years sober. I believe everyone deserves an opportunity for recovery. Yet, the majority of people with addictions never get that opportunity. My personal mission is making sure that you are armed with the facts and the tools you need to get your loved one sober.
Yes! You Can Get Them Sober.
My parents were divorced before my first birthday because my father relapsed while my mother was pregnant with me. While they remained divorced, my mother helped my father get sober again. When I struggled with addiction in my teens, my mom handled it with grace and dignity. I've extracted and packaged the same tips and tricks my mom used on me to get me sober when I was only seventeen. Were it not for my mother's actions, I never would've gotten sober. Yes, she was amazing, she was awesome, she was brilliant (I'm a little biased). But most importantly, what my mom did is duplicatable. Meaning you can do it too. And I can show you how.
Here's What I Know About You...
You're not in Denial.
And your family isn't dysfunctional.
You've tried to help but nothing has worked.
You know waiting for your loved one to "hit bottom" doesn't make sense.
And you know simply "letting go" means the addiction will get worse.
So nothing will change.
People give you their opinions and make suggestions, but you know they don"t "get it."
You don't want to be tough, confrontational, or mean.
You just want this to get better.
You want this fixed and you're not sure what to do.
