ISA Intervention & Recovery Specialists is a group of caring professionals who have extensive training & experience in designing the best intervention for your loved one & your family. We have assembled a team with advanced degrees & certifications in the areas of counseling, substance abuse, eating disorders, & compulsive behaviors. Successful interventions conducted with love, care & concern.
InterventionsWe offer a complementary consultation to see if intervention is right for your loved one. We will then guide you in creating a plan of action. Consultations can take place by phone or in person, and can include several family members, friends, and colleagues. Every intervention provided by ISA - Intervention and Recovery Specialists is unique. No two interventions are identical. They are customized to meet the needs of your loved one. However, our goal for every intervention we facilitate is the same: Using love, care and concern, we guide the family, manage the circumstances, and help the individual make his or her own, personal choice to reach out for recovery.
