Read more testimonialsI can confidently say, our intervention would not have been successful without John Southworth. John won't tell you what you want to hear, he'll tell you what you need to hear. John is tough and caring all wrapped into one. He helped our family pull our heads out of the sand, understand the problem and face the problem. Most importantly, he reminded us of the time factor; the fact that while we were trying to make the perfect decision, there was the chance that our loved one would die, accidentally kill someone else or end up in jail with a record. Time wasn't going to wait for us. Unfortunately, drugs/alcohol weren't the only problem. We had personality issues within our intervention team that John effectively managed more than anyone could have by constantly bringing the disagreements back to the issue at hand--getting help for our loved one's addiction. Our intervention wasn't conventional as per the book, though that was our goal. Our addict found out about the intervention beforehand and we had to do an emergency intervention with John remotely. He took countless phone calls from everyone on the team at all hours of the night and while we would have much rather had him there, he was still an integral part of the success. Not only did he guide us on what to do and how to act/react, he used his numerous contacts to get us into a hospital detox, after hours, without any complications. When things didn't go to plan, he knew how to find quick solutions. He continued to be our rock, even after the intervention. I talked with many interventionists while I was initially researching this subject. Many asked who else I had talked with and a couple told me that if I could get John, I should book him immediately. He sold himself to me before that, but it was comforting to know how respected he is in the industry. After going through an intervention with him, it's unquestionable as to why he is so respected. I thought the intervention was going to be the hardest thing ever and have since found that there will be many obstacles to overcome. John has given us strength and is still a big part of our lives. He helped orchestrate a truly, life changing event. I will forever be grateful.
