Information on Drugs, Alcohol, and Interventions in Washington D.C.
Washington D.C., our nation’s capital, has long been plagued by a variety of drug problems. The city’s large international population provides a cover for ethnic drug trafficking groups from around the world. The suburbs, as well as the states, surrounding the D.C. area, provide traffickers a steady supply of customers. Alongside the intense drug-trafficking subculture, Washington D.C. has a strong history of violence. Most notably, the violence associated with crack cocaine distribution. Despite being our nation’s capital with the high rate of drug abuse, treatment options in Washington D.C. are few and far-between. Many residents are forced to seek treatment out of the area.
We specialize in building a plan that not only helps the addict heal but the family as well. As a company founded by a family who has struggled with substance abuse, we know what it is like to have a major rift within the household that comes from drugs and alcohol. Due our passion and drive for success, we have become the largest intervention service provider in North America, providing around 400 successful interventions per year.
