I don’t know how a trauma in my family a few generations back might show up in my life, that is until I recently passed up buying a pumpkin. I stood in front of a beautiful pumpkin at a farm stand.

An intervention is not a one-off event; it is a recovery process. I commit to working with families for 90 days to ensure that the person suffering begins treatment successfully and has a plan that will ensure long term recovery.

Through a 90 day coaching program, Claire set specific goals to reduce his drinking – and ultimately, she actually chose to become sober.

Vivitrol is a relatively new medication used to manage alcohol or opioid dependence. It’s a long-acting injection of the drug naltrexone, effective for about 28 days, which offers the convenience of a once-a-month injection over taking a pill every day. Vivitrol is a “hard stop” to opiate addiction; once it’s in the body, it’s impossible for the person taking it to get “high” from opioids.

Coaching for Airline Pilots
