Roots Collaborative gives individuals and families a safe, healthy and constructive environment to start their recovery paths.  As Certified ARISE Interventionists (CAI), we are trained and believe in the invitational intervention model, which invites the entire family network to participate in the process, including the family member with whom we are acutely concerned. 

Having been in our clients’ shoes, we intimately understand how difficult it is to face intervening on a loved one, whose life you’re afraid of losing to addiction.  Our Roots team brings over 55 years of sobriety within our multigenerational family to the table.  Between all of us, we’ve played almost every role within our family system (father, mother, daughter, sister, brother, spouse…), and that is why our clients say they love to work with us – we get it! 

We strongly encourage everyone in the family, including close friends, to become engaged in the recovery process.  The best results are gleaned when each family member learns the facts about substance abuse and any co-occurring disorders, the struggle their loved one is currently experiencing, and begin to own how they may personally be impacted by the illness and the family’s genetic history.  With this new awareness, each member can start to identify the personal support needed to play an active role in their own journey toward health.  Over time, the Roots team is constantly in awe of the miracles that come to fruition when a family commits to this transformative process. 

In combination with ARISE, Roots has a distinct methodology of delivering custom recovery solutions that help families and individuals harness their unique gifts to build sustainable futures.  By incorporating innovative ways to move forward, envision the future, and set goals accordingly, we see whole persons being nourished in harmony within their family systems.
