Consult with Elisabeth Escobar

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

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 throws a family’s emotions into disarray, which can create chaos – and addiction thrives in chaos.

Elisabeth 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.
