A Love First intervention defines who we are,
and where this journey will take our family.
When we focus the power of love into a specific plan, we create change. A Love First interventionopens the door to treatment for alcohol and drug addiction. We can take the journey of recovery with our loved one by becoming a Recovery Team. As a family in recovery, we lead the way back to happiness. Let us show you how.
Jeff and Debra Jay have been helping families for more than 30 years. Their best-selling book, Love First, helps families stabilize difficult situations and move into the solution. Whether you work with a professional interventionist or not, you will find the resources in this website to move forward.
Learn how to create a pathway to Yes. The Love First model of intervention has been guiding families and professionals for decades. Whether you work through the process on your own or with one of our professional interventionists, we can give you the best chance for success.
By creating a Recovery Team, we can leverage the power of family to avoid relapse and achieve long-term success. Structured Family Recovery® changes outcomes. Based on the book, It Takes a Family, the SFR program heals, strengthens and transforms families.
“The intervention training was the best I have attended in twenty-five years as a counselor and supervisor. It was engaging, relevant, and imminently useful. I would not hesitate to recommend the Love First Clinical Intervention training to anyone.”
