Interventionists, Sober Life Coaches, Recovery and Treatment Specialists.
Recovery First Interventions was founded by Michael Gonzales with one principal idea in mind; that effective solutions for recovery from alcoholism and drug addiction should be made available to all those who honestly seek it. Far too often, families throw money at the problem of addiction unsuccessfully due to a lack of comprehensive planning and case management.
At Recovery First, we bring together the best, and most experienced professionals in the business today, starting at the top, offering our clients comprehensive solutions that work. All of our team members are in recovery themselves, and operate at the highest level of professionalism and integrity. We’ve been there, and have years of experience in the field of recovery, interventions, sober life coaching, and drug treatment case planning and management.
Recovery from alcoholism and drug addiction, and showing others exactly how we have recovered, is our passion.
