Fred Brown Recovery Services is a non-profit 12 Step based residential treatment program for adult men.  We have been serving our community for over 28 years, helping thousands recover from the disease of addiction.


Fred Brown Recovery Services offers professional interventions.  Knowledgeable and professional staff will assist you and your loved one in getting help.  In fact, the intervention is the first step toward everyone getting help.

A carefully planned intervention based on love and compassion can be highly effective.  The process begins with our treatment team assessing individual needs and circumstances to determine if an intervention is beneficial and appropriate.  The interventionist will outline options for the family such as the structure of the intervention, type of treatment, medical issues, insurance coverage, and payment options.

The Interventionist will guide the family through each specific step of the process.  Every step of the way will be thoroughly explained in advance and multiple scenarios will be presented to prepare family members in understanding anticipated resistance.  The interventionist will explain the crucial role loved ones and others will have in this powerful process.  

Our goal is for your loved one to accept help and arrangements made in advance for admission to a treatment program that is best suited.  We start by challenging the barriers, beliefs and denial of the addiction. There is strength in numbers and the participants encourage and support the addicted individual and each other in the belief that their family system and relationships can be restored. 

A well executed intervention is a viable weapon against active addiction.  We all know too well the ultimate consequence of this destructive disease.  Addiction also has profound consequences for family members. An intervention brings family and friends together by moving them from crisis to restored hope, serenity and a lifestyle of healthy choices.

Chemical dependency is a family disease.  It affects the emotional, physical, and the spiritual well being of the family members.  Our program is designed to help both the individual and their family understand and cope with the disease of addiction.

We provide a friendly atmosphere and a professional understanding of the problems and personal family situations.  The family will be introduced to various aspects of addiction through educational and therapeutic group sessions.  Family members will have the opportunity to address their own concerns as well as the concerns of their loved one.  What is most important, is that the family has the opportunity to heal from the trauma addiction brings.  The support and involvement of the family during and after treatment of the individual is vital for both the family and the individual’s recovery.

Our program emphasizes the following keys to your family’s recovery:

  • Addiction is not a disgrace.  Like any illness when treated properly, recovery is possible.
  • Addiction is not about willpower. The “if you loved me” approach does not work.
  • Hiding the truth or pretending the addiction does not exist simply enables.
  • Let your loved one face and solve the consequences of their actions.  Don’t do that which they can do for themselves.
  • Idle threats only make a person feel that you don’t mean what you say.
  • Look towards progress not perfection.  As with most illnesses, there are phases of recovery.
