Are you drinking too much? Are you frightened because your teenage son is using drugs? Is your teenage daughter's eating habits a cause for concern? Are you gambling your salary each month?

Unfortunately, for many it is not possible to just stop these issues. Many of you will have said or heard countless times "that's enough" to find yourself doing the same time after time. This can lead to health issues; relationship problems; employment troubles; financial ruin; desperation and complete suffering for the person and those around them. For the sufferer we know it is not easy to stop binging on food or going to the casino. Thankfully, there are many treatments for these and similar 'addictive' and emotionally destructive behaviours. It can be overwhelming looking at the vast amount of advertisements for treatment.

You will ask yourselves, "How do I know which treatment has the best outcome for me or my partner/child? Who can help them from destroying their lives?" Understandably, this can be frightening, confusing and frustrating especially when a life is at risk. A.T.C. is there to guide you. We do not charge you directly for our service: the health-care provider pays our fee. Through our assessment protocol and subsequent support we will determine which specific professional help will give you the most chance of success. We have years of knowledge about excessive drinking; alcoholism; drug addiction; eating disorders; excessive gambling; sex addiction; co-dependency; compulsive shopping; overspending; internet addiction; and other obsessive compulsive psychological and emotional issues such as depression and trauma which need treatment. When calling us you are guaranteed to speak in confidence with a consultant who understands.

Many who abuse drug or alcohol or food eventually decide to gain help for themselves before it is fatal. Others, sadly, are still in the grips of their using and are in denial. This is where an intervention could save their lives before it is too late. An intervention can greatly help the person who cannot see or does not want to see their destruction. Interventions can help them begin to make their lives really change for the better. Changes that are so important it will give the person who suffers a chance at an entirely new life with wonderful possibilities and potential. Of course, family and friends can challenge and coerce their loved ones. However, very often a skilled specialist is needed.

An intervention involves many considerations that require detailed planning and attention. If your family member, employee, friend or loved one is in trouble, then please call us today. The promise of a life free from the chaos, destruction, pain and the suffering of drug abuse, addiction, alcoholism and chemical dependency can start with a phone call now. Once you have decided to choose A.T.C. to assist you we will:

Conduct a thorough assessment Liaise with you and decide who should be present Meet you and discuss what the procedure and content will be Arrange the logistics Secure the post intervention plan so the patient can enter rehab immediately and safely Many people die from addiction; alcoholism; eating disorders and dangerous responses to depression like suicide, for example. The long-believed notion that people can still believe that someone has to want to enter to rehab to recover has proved to be untrue. This has been statistically proven to be wrong. The alcoholic can change and recover after their period of initial resistance.
