Jeffrey has several years of in-house counsel and treatment and intervention planning experience for national recovery programs.

This maintains the professional autonomy and distance required to recommend only those treatment programs that are best suited to our client’s and family’s needs.
Jeffrey brings to his work extensive knowledge about the many moving parts of multi-problem clients and family systems, treatment and intervention. He is a well-known and respected member of the addictions professionals and recovery communities, bringing to this work the spark of his own personal long-term recovery.
