I just wanted to drop you a note and let you know how thankful we are for the integral part you played in a successful intervention for our sister. Your role was crucial, and I think the service you provide is a blessing for both the alcoholic and their affected family, for a couple of reasons: Having a dispassionate third party play the leading role served to 'set the tone' of calm and order for our entire family, while taking the burden off of the already emotionally-drained members to appoint one of our own to serve as the leader. Having you, in particular, be the mediator/'lead man' for our group lent real credibility to our efforts, as you were able to show [my sister] through your own story what success treatment can yield when the alcoholic finally yields to the treatment. I believe that even if our efforts were unsuccessful in getting [my sister] into treatment, the outpouring of love we were able to share with her that day would have made it worthwhile nonetheless. Most people never have the opportunity to hear such sentiments from those closest to them while they are still alive, and it now seems silly to me that we typically save them for funerals, when they will have zero impact on our loved one. An intervention is a powerful tool that benefits not only the alcoholic but those closest to them, and we're grateful that we used your services to give [my sister] the absolute best shot at taking our offer to help her on her road to sobriety. Please feel free to use this to encourage others to take this step as well. Thanks again,
