Universal Crisis Intervention

27+ Years Of Experience

We understand how powerless it feels to see a loved one lost to drug addictions or destructive relationships. UCI provides tactical assistance to help them get free.

We knows that struggling with an addiction can be a tumultuous experience and are here to assure you that recovery is possible and freedom CAN BE YOURS.

A sober companion is a trusted person who guides, inspires and walks the client through recovery. Because no recovery road taken is better alone, our professionally trained sober coaches provide compassionate help during an otherwise narrow process.

Our dedicated team is prepared to assist clients in any type of setting. Our sober companion program offers a cohesive plan that promotes success with every step taken. We work together with our clients, their families, and appropriate professionals (doctors, lawyers, previous treatment facilities, etc.) to ensure a successful ongoing treatment plan.

Before treatment, a professional will sit with you to elaborate on a personalized program that meets your needs and condition. As soon as we get started, we bring in our vast resources to be a conduit to a healthy & prosperous outcome.
