Here at MWRH, we offer a non-mandatory program that is coupled with a reliable outpatient treatment. It is an opportunity for our clients to receive a kind of inpatient experience with out having to go through the financial extremes it sometimes takes to actually do so. We feel it is important that each client acquire as much knowledge and insight into herself as possible, and the outpatient programs we incorporate are well equipped with professionals that do just that. We also cater to any outpatient programs that may already be in place and will provide necessary transportation.

Counseling and Intervention
MWRH offers 24-hour professional intervention services for families in crisis. Interventions ensure family involvement from the beginning of the recovery phase.An intervention is a selfless act by a loved one, friend or co-worker to show the addict that you care about them. This is the first step you can take to help an addict understand and grasp the reality that they have a problem. An intervention done properly and conducted by an expert can be very effective in helping an individual accept treatment. Our addiction interventionists have not only been where your loved one is now, but have also been where he/she is going if he/she does not stop. An intervention is equally important to the family members and friends as it not only helps the addict see that there is need for treatment, but also by helping family members and friends to understand what the addict is going through. The information contained within this site was created to educate those who are in need of an intervention for a friend, co-worker, family member or loved one. 24 hour assistance is also provided as a service by calling our helpline at 832-263-1950.

ATTRACTION, NOT PROMOTION
“Through many painful experiences, we think we have arrived at what that policy ought to be. It is the opposite in many ways of usual promotional practice. We found that we had to rely upon the principle of attraction rather than of promotion.”
— TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, pp. 180-81
While I was drinking I reacted with anger, self-pity and defiance against anyone who wanted to change me. All I wanted then was to be accepted by another human simply as I was and, curiously, that is what I found in A.A. I became the custodian of this concept of attraction, which is the principle of our Fellowship’s public relations. It is by attraction that I can best reach the alcoholic who still suffers.
I thank God for having given me the attraction of a well-planned and established program of Steps and Traditions. Through humility and the support of my fellow sober members, I have been able to practice the A.A. way of life through attraction, not promotion.
