Consult with Cheryl Emery

You may wish to begin with a scheduled consultation with Cheryl Emery, to see if intervention is right for your family or to explore treatment options. Consultations are available by video conference or conference call (or in person in the South Florida area), and may include multiple family members.

Family members don’t always agree on how to address addiction and mental health problems. Often, it may feel like everything has already been tried. The dynamics of addiction usually throw a family’s emotions into disarray, which can create chaos – and addiction thrives in chaos.

Cheryl can provide order, direction and new options. A scheduled consultation, lasting at least one hour, will start the process. A detailed history will be gathered, and a fresh strategy can be developed.
