Anthony Marengo, President
Anthony's committment to interventions and recovery is a very
personal one. During the grips of his addiction, he lost sight of his goals and
dreams, he dropped out of college, withdrew from his family and friends,
incurred serious legal and financial trouble and was drunk on a daily basis.
Feeling hopeless and that life had no purpose, he was presented with a new way
of living. The process started with an intervention his family coordinated and
continued after his graduation from inpatient residential treatment.
With some willingness and support from his family and treatment
team, he took full advantage of the opportunity his family gave him at his
intervention finishing his inpatient program with a new found calling to help
other alcoholics and addicts. Anthony has worked with individuals and families
at all phases of recovery. He has extensive expereince working in
Admissions at a leading young adult treatment program as well as at a premier
90 day lisenced facility for alcoholism and addiction treatment. Anthony
was also responsible for a 60 bed facility as Program Director and learned the
most effective techniques and strategies to help keep individuals in treatment.
He has also managed sober living programs and aftercare. Anthony
and his team have successfully facilitated over 100 successful intervenitoins
helping families get their loved one's into treatment.
Founded on the back of his success with his own struggle, the core
nature of IPS is an unyeilding belief in the importance of the critical
connection of one sober person relation to another sober person.
