CanAm Interventions facilitated an three day intervention training at Together We Can Treatment Program in Vancouver, BC, Canada November 2017. I had the honor of taking the CANAM Interventions Training and Skills 101 Certificate course with Patti in Vancouver last year. I say honor because Patti’s knowledge, experience and professionalism made it one of the most useful courses I have ever attended. Patti’s intensive program prepared me to confidently and successfully run an intervention. I am grateful that I have been able to expand my skills and can offer families more help to start their healing process. Thanks Patti!!!

Vancouver, BC, Canada

Patti’s intervention training was professional and informative. Many other Interventionist Trainers really do not tend to the needs of their students without some kind of fee but I witnessed first hand how Patti truly cares for the work being done in the field and her willingness to mentor individuals for the good of the entire industry. I highly recommend her intervention training to those who really want to hone their skills and gain not only a wonderful mentor, but friend and colleague for life. Evan & Eric !
