Telecare enhances treatment~
Bringing the 'bottom' up to the person bound by their addictions is a time-tested method of beginning an end to the helplessness, depression, and insanity. We all know that doing the same thing and expecting different results is the definition of insanity especially for those living with and around substance abuse disorders.
Interventions work when conducted by an addiction professional who has the experience and skills to structure the process for containing the family in a healthy and positive manner. During the intervention the individual is helped in channeling resistive energy into a listening process allowing concerned family members to paint the picture of the environment of active drinking and drugging by their loved-one.
There is a way out, there is relief, there is freedom from addictions, and long-term recovery.
Consult with Lori to learn of the processes for you as the individual willing to take action. Recovery begins when you make the call today!

Families often fall into unconscious roles when addictive behaviors rule the house. Everyone takes a back-seat when confronted with the chaos, rudeness, invisibility, and abuse of addiction in the family dynamic. Lori’s communication style is for each voice to have a place in the circle of life, helping to lower the conscious and unconscious defensive skill-sets of each person in the family and empowering children to voice their truth and realities. Lori works with your family in the home where “life-happens”. Caregivers love not having to arrange childcare, bundling the kids off to yet another appointment, and loosing time getting there and back. A call to Lori will explain how in-home family counseling may work for you and your children. We can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing.
After helping families in recovery for years, Lori is passionate about watching the 'magic' as a family is victorious over the destructive behaviors of addictions. These behaviors are replaced with time-proven skills and tools for restoring sobriety, rekindling passion, and manifesting joy within a conscious and intentional framework provided by Imago Relationship Therapy. The programing is offered via web-based sites, in-person coaching and counseling, weekend seminars and intensive retreats for couples and families..
