"In Our Own Words"

Don Tripp

What Makes Us Different and Special:

"I was originally trained in the Johnson Institute's model of intervention. Over the years, I have found that the power of the team, if properly prepared and willing to share the effects of the chemical use on them individually, and the power of the intervention is one of the most emotional and spiritual experiences and that the result is surrender to treatment."

Overview of Practice:

"My wife and I have an independent Employee Assistance Program company called Priority One Resources and have been in business over 21 years. Prior to that I did many interventions for treatment centers for 5 years."

What Advice Would You Give to Prospective Clients:

"Use an experienced interventionist and trust that professional to guide and direct the participants. If not comfortable with an aspect of that interventionist, ask the questions to get you and other members comfortable with the process."

What Special Training Does the Staff Have:

"I have been doing formal interventions for over 25 years and have worked a 12 Step recovery program for close to 30 years. I remain active today. The success rate for intervention, meaning the individual enters treatment the same day, is above 90%."
