"In Our Own Words"

Healing Works

What Makes Us Different and Special:

"Our ultimate goal for every addictive person is long term recovery from the disease of addiction. We intervene with the focus on long term recovery for the entire family. We recognize the inherent shame of people with this disease and we will uphold the dignity of everyone involved in the intervention. There is shame in addiction, but there is no shame in recovery."

What Advice Would You Give to Prospective Clients:

"Not all treatment facilities are the same. We recommend The Caron Foundation whenever it is appropriate."

Overview of Practice:

"Our work involves assessment of the issues, providing an intervention best suited to the situation, and planning effective treatment recommendations for all participants."

What Special Training Does the Staff Have:

"Jerry Katchmer, MSW is an expert in addiction counseling and has had formal intervention training. His style is multi-modality including client-centered, reality-based and feeling-based. Anne K. Crothers, MEd is an expert in trauma and abuse. She has worked with addiction and codependency for 17 years and has an eclectic, expressive style."
