For more than six years, Matt Brown has been helping families overcome the disease of addiction. He’s a Certified Arise Interventionist (CAI), and he utilizes this revolutionary model to motivate the whole family to change and put the needed pressure on an addicted person that can lead to life-long change.
Matt became interested in the field of intervention due to his own long struggle with addiction. His family held an intervention in 2001, without the help of an interventionist, and when Matt achieved sobriety, he realized that his continuing descent into addictive substance use caused unneeded suffering for the people he loved most. At that moment, he decided to dedicate his life to helping other families avoid the same fate, and he draws upon his experience as an addict when he works with families in need.
Matt is the owner and founder of Freedom Interventions, a company based in Portland, Oregon. He spends a significant amount of time in the field, away from Oregon, as he helps families all across the country as needed.
