No matter which way you slice the pie, prisons do not perform well in rehabilitating offenders. Programs are frequently punitive, and according to a report in the Washington Post, about 66 percent of prisoners, within three years of their release, commit crimes again. In many instances, the new crime is more serious than the one that previously landed an offender in prison. This is especially bad news for people in prison on drug crimes. However, rehab should be an option for many prisoners. We published a post here http://delaware-valley.biz/drug-treatment/facing-drug-charges-rehab-is-an-option/ about this topic.

There is no way that we could have done this without you... You have an amazing ability of using patience and kindness to really connect with people...
We are parents and a family who will forever be grateful to a man who helped save our son.
THANK YOU are two small words that don't seem big enough emphasize our appreciation for all you... Please accept our deep and heartfelt thanks.
From the minute we spoke with Frank, he put our minds at ease as to how he would conduct the intervention and what to expect.
A mere Thank you is not enough to express our gratitude for your help in the most difficult time in our lives.
Frank has a special ability to relate to people and inspire confidence through his knowledge, empathy and quiet strength, not to mention he's a pretty likable guy. I know he will continue to help families like ours and we will always remember and be thankful for Frank's help.
I really can't say enough about the integrity and compassion that Frank brings to his clients and I am extremely grateful that we have crossed paths.
Dear Frank and Family,
A new beginning, that is what our son, EJ, has been given through our faith, family and friends. Please know how thankful we are to you and your daughter for allowing Frank to come into our lives to help our son EJ.
We know the love that Frank has for both of you and do know the love you must have for him to stand beside him through all that you may have been through. I will forever be grateful to Frank and your family! Annie and Ed P.
Our family was going through a very tough time with our brother and we were nearly convinced that no one could speak to my brother. Frank come in like a breath of Fresh Air and was the key to getting my brother into rehab. I am certain if it was somebody else that came to for the intervention things would not have worked out as well as they did. Our family is indebted to Frank for his help.
In a time where we had no answers and needed someone to help lead us, we found New Life, we found Frank... this man has a halo and wings. Frank we consider you a true friend and to us and a God sent blessing.
Can't fully express how much you are appreciated by my family and myself. You totally took control of a difficult situation and made everyone feel comfortable and in control. It is a gift you have that you have been blessed with. My son took to you right away because of your kind and compassionate manner. His siblings knew you were the right person for the job and they trusted your judgment. You took my son across the country safely and quickly and he is doing well in rehab. Can't thank you enough. So grateful for you. Sheila and George
Our whole family can all say that we have never met anyone as kind and as caring as you Frank. The way you handled the entire situation from start to finish is simply amazing. Your patience and kindness added to your unbelievable ability to persist in the toughest environment leaves us speechless still. Our daughter connected to you like no other could I believe and I can't thank you enough for all you did for our family. The world is truly a much better place because of what you do for others Frank! Thank you thank you thank you!!!
I would have never believed , when I was holding my newborn daughter, that someday I would need the skills of a trained interventionist to preserve her future. After years of usage that continued to escalate, we knew as parents that we were in need of a professional. Our situation called for timely action and we called Frank for his help. He had a calm and reassuring manner from the beginning and quickly assimilated the facts of our case to propose a way ahead. He was continually available during this critical time to answer questions and prepare us in advance of the intervention event. He helped us put the plan into place and within a week. We met the night before and he effectively prepared us for a multitude of options, to include some where we did not want to go. Words can't describe the intervention day, the twists and turns, and the things that he was able to accomplish that we as parents would never have been able to. He maneuvered landmines that as parents, we would never have been able to do. In addition, I can't say enough about his faith and how this permeated the day. Late that night, his text telling us that our daughter was safely at the treatment facility was an answered prayer. Our daughter has been in treatment now for almost 90 days and is back to the daughter we knew in her early teens. Frank was indeed an answer to prayer for our family.
It’s difficult to believe that it has been almost three months since we met you for the first time as an interventionist for our daughter. My husband and I had no idea on what to expect and how you would convince our daughter that she needed to receive help. All of our trust and faith was being put in the hands of an individual with whom we had never met. Frank, you have demonstrated that you have the necessary compassion, skills, and inner strength to help individuals and families realize what they need to consider when dealing with the many challenges of drug addiction and rehabilitation.
Literally within hours, all of our family members including our daughter were in agreement that she should accompany you, begin her journey to receive treatment and rehabilitation.
We choose a program and they asked if we needed an interventionist. This was the key to a successful start for her treatment. The whole process was very quick as to intervening. On Sunday we made our choice of programs, on Monday Frank was here for a family phone conference with our daughter, sons and her boyfriend. On Tuesday, my husband, Frank and I went to our daughters boyfriends home at 9;00 am in the morning. A confrontation was immediate,as you had predicted, and you successfully accomplished your mission of convincing her, that she should get packed, and on a plane by 6:00 p.m. that day with you. Every word you chose to convince her was professional and from the heart of someone who had been there.
Words can not adequately express our gratitude and love. Please contact her as she would like to continue building on your knowledge and experience also keep in touch with us.
Thank You Frank, Doug and Judy
