Consult with Lowell Duncan

You may wish to begin with a scheduled consultation with Lowell Duncan, 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 Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN 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.

Lowell 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.
