HELP!  My Loved One is Addicted Mini Seminar


Are you new to the world of recovery and addiction and find yourself overwhelmed with what to do in order to help your loved one stop their destructive ways?  Have you tried ultimatums, threats, restrictions and even begging/pleading with no positive results?  I can help.


My name is Mark Turansky – Clinical Director of New Horizons counseling and author of the book:  “Figure it, Face it & Fix it – Your surprising solution to addiction and substance abuse.”   (   Besides struggling with addiction for 25 years personally, I have been helping people find their motivation for making revolutionary changes for the past couple of decades and I am willing to come alongside of you to coach you up to speed so you can maximize your potential for being helpful with your loved one.  Many times, well-intentioned loved ones actually sabotage the very things they want by doing all the wrong things, therefore becoming part of the problem instead of part of the solution.


In this two hour mini seminar, I will teach you:


The Stages of Change – Each person who takes the journey of using substance, becoming addicted, deciding to get help and getting sober, goes through the “Stages of Change.”  This is one of the main tools addiction counselors use because there are different goals and focus points involved with each stage.  Loved ones often put “the cart before the horse” and are shooting for goals with the person who is struggling that they are not yet at that stage.  Knowing what stage your loved one is in and what goals are needed to address that stage before moving to the next stage is crucial if you are going to be productive in your efforts.


Motivational Interviewing skills – Addiction counselors who have mastered the art of Motivational Interviewing tend to have the best results with their clients. Learn what to say, how to say it and what to avoid so you can start developing these skills.


Levels of treatment – Do they need detox? Inpatient?  Outpatient?  What about community AA and 12 Step?  Where do we begin?  What constitutes a “good program?”  Participants will learn what to focus on what is most effective and what may not be effective as they develop strategies to offer the person when they are ready for help.


The cost for this two-hour seminar is only $150.  I am willing to do this with only one person or an entire family for the same price.  This program is offered at my Haleiwa office.  However, I am willing to come and present in  your home for an additional $150 travel fee.
