My name is Mark Gilbert, and I am an addiction specialist. My older sister was an alcoholic and a drug addict. My family and I have had a handful of interventions for her over the years, and the last one was effective. She has been sober ever since, and that was five years ago.

I have seen the power of a good intervention. I have seen what it can do for an alcoholic or drug addict. I wanted to start this blog to give others advice on how to perform their own interventions.

Have a look at the blog, and let me know if there are any topics you would like for me to cover.
