LOS ANGELES, Aug. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Change Inc by Brad Lamm, a leading family-focused organization for intervention services, announces today it has acquired and relaunched www.intervention.com, the trusted domain associated with Vaughn Howland since 1996.
"Daily addiction headlines tell the agonizing stories of loss and struggle, and remind of the incredible task at hand," said Change Inc founder Brad Lamm. "We have learned so much about how to reduce suffering in the past three decades since intervention.com launched. Intervention is an easier option than most believe, and I am committed to doing everything possible to help families understand that 'NO' is a conversation starter rather than the final answer."
Change Inc's relaunch of intervention.com includes these consumer options:
- Allow visitors to access help 24-hours a day / 7 days a week
- Provide education to all those seeking an intervention "starting point"
- Schedule intervention help with a local professional
- Connect friends, families and employers to appropriate help for substance use, eating disorders & mental health needs
- Offer access to clinical trainings through Change Inc's Breakfree Intervention skills trainings held regionally on an annual basis
- Refer only to Fair Care Promise providers, all of whom have taken a pledge to act ethically and fairly (www.FairCarePromise.com)
"Setting a standard was critical to us," Change Inc Managing Partner and Chief Operating Officer Sean Gruwell commented on the need accountability in this life and death business. "We choose to do right by families, and refer to providers who have taken an oath to do nothing less- fair care each time."
Lamm founded Change Inc in 2005 and since then it has become a platform for helping people change for the better. Having undergone his own journey of recovery, Lamm is a teacher, interventionist, and author of How To Help The One You Love and JUST 10 LBS., Easy Steps to Weighing What You Want (Finally). In 2013, Lamm founded Breathe Life Healing Centers, which has doubled its number of beds each year since its opening. Lamm and his team continue to transform the way addiction is treated in the U.S.
