Due to the fact that this October is the 2nd annual National Substance Abuse Prevention month designated by President Obama we bring you Robert Newman's story which is that of an addiction treatment counselor going above and beyond the regular "call of duty" for his community, and beyond, to help save drug abusers from their ultimate demise. Robert had a unique path to his profession in that he used to be the one using and abusing drugs. Upon an intervention in his life, Robert was able to make the decision to get help. Now after years of his own sobriety being found, a call to help others achieve sobriety through intervention's, and helping find personal victories by beating addiction only seemed right.

Hawaii, just like any State in the U.S. has its own problems with drug and alcohol abuse or addiction. The state has a unique downfall in that it is not physically connected with the rest of the United States. This has a great negative effect on the local population that struggles with alcohol and drug addiction, since there are little resources for addiction rehab and assistance on the islands.

With an estimated 90,000 struggling alcoholics and drug addicts and a mere 200 beds in public rehab facilities in the state of Hawaii, there is a serious need for addiction treatment, and a large deficit of treatment facilities available. This is where Robert Newman and his team of interventionist's assumes responsibility. The Addiction Watch staff has a unique connection with rehabilitation facilities around the United States. Their communication networks extend to just about every treatment modality available today. The affiliation they have with these facilities allows their counseling team to either offer the intervention service themselves, or refer the patient to a local interventionist if it is out of their geographical location. With years of experience in the intervention field, Robert and his team have been responsible for 100's of successful interventions across the U.S. that have led to proper treatment and ultimate recovery.

The Network

When it comes to getting an individual that it lost in a whirlpool of drug abuse to let go and get help Robert Newman has the touch. He has successfully intervened in 100's of abusers addictions and got them on-board to get treatment immediately. "The hardest thing to address sometimes is the families of these addicts. Most of the time they have devised a way of coping with their loved one's addiction that either enables them or abandons them. Sometimes they essentially are addicted to enabling" says Robert Newman of The relationships that Addiction Watch and Robert Newman have created with treatment centers across the nation is that of a trusting one. When Robert needs a treatment facility locally for a troubled user he and his team are able to fly out on the drop of a hat and perform the intervention while simultaneously arranging for that person to start in a local treatment center.

Quite simply put the biggest advantage given to the patients of is the staff. With a combination of trained professionals and firsthand real life experience's; that the owner and operator Robert Newman can offer his own trials and tribulations with drug addiction as an example to all. It is truly one of a kind, and creates a level of understanding that most interventionists could not fathom.

Their Goal is Your Sobriety

The main goal of and Robert Newman is to help struggling families find treatment for their addicted loved ones. With an extremely high success rate in the field of interventions, Robert Newman's expertise lie in preparing the family for a life changing event in their families lives. "It is a struggle to get the family on board sometimes. By the time an intervention is realized to be the only path, so many underlying issues of the addiction and how it has affected the family on an individual level must be addressed." Says Robert Newman. The challenge presents itself more prominently in the family members of the addict since they are generally so fed up or lost in the situation. The user themselves generally just wants to find an end to their reliance on drugs or alcohol, that treatment after an intervention then becomes a welcome change.
