  • ER Interventions and Therapy Services Reviews

    Eric saved one of our family members lives. Can’t express how grateful we all are!

    Natalie LeGrand

    Eric is an amazing interventionist. Really helped my family.

    Jolynn Wiversoll

    Our family reached out to Eric about a month ago to help facilitate an intervention to get my brother-in-law into a treatment facility. My brother-in-law is in his 60’s and suffers from a 40+ year addiction.
    I have to admit that I was very skeptical about Eric being able to convince my brother-in-law to enter a treatment facility since he’s lived most of his adult life addicted. But Eric’s skill set is phenomenal, he knows exactly what to say and how to handle every excuse/problem thrown his way. He not only helped my brother-in-law, but he was really there for our family, and provided safe and nurturing support for all of us to help deal with this stressful situation.
    If you’re wondering if you really need someone like Eric to help get your loved one into treatment…the answer is YES! My brother-in-law would have never entered recovery on his own!
    Update: My brother-in-law just reached the 30 day mark for in-house treatment. He was prepared to leave the facility, despite the desperate need for him to continue with the treatment plan. Eric stepped in today and working with the treatment facility he helped my brother-in-law to see that additional treatment is needed and my brother-in-law agreed to stay in treatment!!!
    From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much Eric for the love and support and hope you have given our family!

    My experience with Eric has been nothing short of a miracle……my husband had been a alcoholic and drug addict for many many years and our family decided to do a intervention. Thank God we chose Eric to handle this difficult task …..I know we would have had a different outcome if he was not there …he is the most knowledgeable compassionate therapist I have ever encountered…..he listens to every word we said and knew exactly how to handle the situation… husband. Agreed to rehab in the first 30 minutes of the intervention….I know if we had not wrote the letters that Eric had us read and approach the intervention in the way he does it my husband would have not gone and it would of been a very bad situation….I highly recommend Eric ……

    We called Eric to help with our adolescent daughter who was experiencing a substance abuse crisis. Eric has a very effective system with which he directs the intervention. He is an extremely determined person who gets to the point and takes action. Adolescent interventions inherently are more difficult due to the special considerations taken with regard to their individual rights. Throughout this ordeal we ran into many obstacles which required that we shift the direction we were going in. This was an incredibly emotional and draining time for myself and my family. Eric was our guiding light throughout the whole process. Eric was able to communicate to my daughter’s father, which has helped him to begin the journey of opening up the doors to better communication with our daughter. We had a pretty complicated situation and Eric was able to communicate with many different parties and coordinate and accommodate everyone involved. He truly has found his calling, his tenacity blended with his education and experience create an environment that is highly likely to produce positive outcomes. I am happy to report that my daughter did agree to go to treatment and is doing really well in her current placement. I highly recommend Eric to help your family out with this difficult and stressful journey, there is no way we would have had this outcome without him.

    Eric came highly recommended when we were faced with having to do an intervention on our son, who was suffering with substance abuse issues. Eric was professional, kind, compassionate , extremely knowledgeable, and knew exactly when and how to approach the situation in order to get our son the help he needed. Eric has a tremendous amount of insight, and experience helping those suffering from addictions, which comes from his years of experience working at one of the best drug addiction programs in our country. With Eric’s help, our son finally made the commitment to get the help he needed. Eric genuinely cares about the people and families he helps, and checks in intermittently to see how our son is doing. I can’t thank Eric enough for all of his help, compassion, patience, and expertise in navigating this difficult situation. I would highly recommend Eric to anyone looking for help when trying to get family member or friend into treatment.

    Mary Ortenburger

    I cannot recommend Eric enough for intervention services. His genuine care, the amount of time and preparation he provides, and his systemic and thorough approach resulted in far better outcomes than we could have imagined for an intervention of love. He is deeply passionate about his work, and it shines through from start to finish. Eric was consistently available, strategic, thoughtful, and extremely caring throughout the process. His sole focus throughout the intervention was on the entire system involved, and his optimism and confidence kept us all grounded through a very stressful process of trying to obtain support for our family member. After speaking with several interventionists, I cannot be more grateful for finding our way to Eric to move our loved one to a place of healing. We will continue our work with Eric throughout this process, and have full trust in his skills, abilities, as well as his care for us all. He is highly professional, wonderful with family systems, and overall just an amazing human being. As a licensed psychotherapist specializing in trauma, I am very selective of who I choose for treatment providers, especially for my family. My trust in Eric’s and his therapeutic work is solid, which speaks volumes about both his clinical skills and his empathic gifts as a treatment provider.

    Meredith Voelkel

    Eric Rhinehart orchestrated my intervention this year. Although I was fearful and resistant to the idea of going into a rehab program, with Eric’s warm demeanor, compassion, and ability to help express my family’s love, I agreed to his plan for me. I am more than grateful for him and his wisdom. Eric treated me with the utmost respect and kindness. He has incredible insight and was able to get through to me. I thank God for bringing him into my life.

    Michael Barnett

    This man is a miracle worker. We had an especially difficult case because we live far away and all our son’s friends are involved with drugs, so Eric had to do the intervention alone. It took him several days, but he never gave up. He managed to convince our son to go to treatment, found a good place for him to go, moved him out of his apartment, arranged a safe place to park his car, followed him to Palm Springs and checked him in after 2 a.m. When we first contacted Eric, I was emotionally overwrought and thought this was impossible. At every step, Eric was calm, reassuring, kind and caring in every way. No words can describe what he has done for our family. We cannot recommend him enough.

    Cindy Mayo

    I had an emergency intervention done on my daughter. It was done outside the emergency room of a hospital. She had left the hospital against medical advice. I was so fortunate that Eric was available. From the moment he said his first words to my daughter, I felt a burden being lifted from my shoulders. He was calm and caring and was able to get her to go to another hospital. It was quite the journey, but Eric handled it all professionally and with patience and compassion. He also supported me throughout the ordeal. I will forever be grateful for his help and advice. If you need an interventionist or therapist, Eric is the BEST!

    Simin M

    Eric is truly a miracle worker. He is a highly experienced and knowledgeable interventionist. He has tremendously helped my family in finding hope in a hopeless situation. With his guidance, my family was able to come together and formulate a strategy to show our addict that we will no longer be held hostage by his detrimental behavior. What stands out most about him is that he’s a licensed therapist and was able to patiently and compassionately lead my family into creating healthy and necessary boundaries for my brother. With these boundaries set in place and our newfound strength and unity as a family, my brother decided to finally accept help and is now in a rehabilitation center. We are eternally grateful for his guidance and HIGHLY recommend him to anyone seeking therapy or an intervention.

    Candace Callahan

    Eric has given us hope for our daughter’s sobriety. Through his tireless and compassionate care throughout the intervention, Eric accomplished what I had come to believe impossible. She is now in the care of a well-respected rehabilitation center. I believe he is a miracle worker and a blessing from the universe for which I will be forever grateful.

    Beverly Ramsey

    Eric staged a masterful intervention for my son, who was headed for possible suicide. Our family will be forever grateful for his compassion,professionalism, experience shown towards our son. He is very connected to professionals that helped orchestrate the urgent intervention. In short time, he instilled trust so that my son willingly was escorted to an appropriate rehab facility. Eric is so skilled as an interventionist and therapist.It is his calling. We are forever thankful for his help. He is a true hero.

    Marc Strehlke

    I had a great experience working with Eric. My wife had a history in substance abuse/alcoholism, we separated and I was informed she relapsed. We share a 4 year old daughter so I considered it an emergency when I found this out. I reached out to Eric and told him how time sensitive it was. In only three days we worked together to set up a treatment facility, contact all the family members who could help, have a sit down meeting with everyone to plan out the structure and approach of the intervention, book flights and finally hold an almost 11 hour intervention.

    The intervention showed me Eric’s persistence and dedication to his job. His goal was set on getting her to the help she needed but did not want. We followed her across town, called in more people to help, and changed flights at least three times. It was quite a day. Several times myself and my wife’s mom lost patience with it, but Eric pushed to continue.

    I’m glad I went with Eric. It did not end up working out with me and my wife, but we got her in treatment and did our part. Having her in there helped me a lot to work through everything myself and figure out what I needed to do for myself. So, without Eric I would not have reached this personal clarity; I would highly recommend him to anyone.

    Shannon M.

    Eric was an absolute godsend during the most difficult of times. I reached out to him in a state of pure desperation on Thanksgiving Day. He left his own family’s celebration to call me back immediately. The very next afternoon, he conducted a successful intervention on our loved one and drove with us to rehab 2.5 hours away. His “workday” started on a holiday and did not end until 3am one and half days later. Not only did he convince our alcoholic/addict to get the help that he needed, but he also coached all of us family members before and after the intervention; he gave us a backbone during our weakest moments. He has made himself available to ask all the endless questions that come up during this rocky journey. He has a very tactical, yet kind approach and we will continue to work with him for family therapy. I cannot speak highly enough about Eric/ER Interventions and would be happy to personally share more of my experience with any potential clients that would like to hear more.

    Louise Mettler

    Erick is an AMAZING interventionist! He worked with our family during an extremely difficult time, and helped us lovingly comunicate our concerns, and bottom lines with our relative who struggles with substance use disorder. I believe that Erick saved my family member’s life.

    Erick educated every member of our family unit and made us feel supported throughout the process. Erick answered our calls and texts, and pulled the intervention together quickly as circumstances changed. He went the extra mile to find a treatment center that accepted her insurance, and kept in communication with us after she entered treatment.

    Our relative chose to leave treatment, and Erick again supported us through the difficult process of detaching with love. Erick has helped me get back to living my life, and has been a blessing to our family.

    Sharom Healey

    Eric did a phenomenal job. I do not know what I would have done without his expertise. He’s caring, compassionate and knows what to do every step of the way. I am so very blessed to have found Eric Rhinehart.If you need an intervention, he’s the one.
    Thank you Eric.

    Brittany Georggin

    Eric is the BEST! For some reason, we (the family) thought we could stage our own intervention on my fiancé who struggles with drug addiction. It turned out horrible. In fact made things worse. It got so bad, my fiancé at one point locked himself in a room and refused to come out or talk to anyone. That’s when Eric stepped in. We are so lucky that he helped us out, so last minute. He came in, got a game plan together, got all of us mentally on the same page with the goal of, we need to get him help. Eric is so caring, patient, compassionate and the only one who got through to him. His energy is non-threatening, his tone is calm and he knows how to handle difficult situations. I don’t know what we would have done without him! Because of Eric , my fiancé is now completing a 90 day treatment. Thank you so much Eric!

    Kyle Mettler

    Eric did a great job getting us prepared to do an intervention, and executing it.

    Once my sister figured out that she was entering her intervention she took off down the street to her close by apartment. She was distraught and yelling obscenities at us. Eric and I followed her down the street, his patience and understanding on how to approach an attic was spectacular! He not only got her to let us into her apartment to talk, he talked her into going back to the intervention and to listen her family who cares about her.

    Once back at the intervention he steered the ship letting us know to share how we felt and to read our letters we prepared. My sister then agreed to take part in inpatient rehab. Eric did his research and found one facility that would help her work towards reuniting with her own child. This was a very stressful situation we wouldn’t of been able to navigate without Eric’s professional experience!

    michael rudolphsen

    Eric is simply amazing. He helped guide my family through a very difficult time with a family member struggling with addiction and mental illness.

    Eric staged an intervention for this family member that would have certainly gone belly up had we just tried it ourselves. He is patient, flexible, and a great communicator. He is also fantastic at de-escalation.

    Eric is wonderful to talk to as well, we’ll continue to use him for family therapy in the future.

    Lindsey T

    I had the privilege of meeting Eric Rhinehart with ER Interventions and I cannot put into words how blown away I was by his knowledge and expertise. In addition to holding his interventionist certification, he is also a practicing LMFT! Eric is one of the coolest, most down to earth guys, I have ever met! After my clinician to clinician interview, I can say I highly recommend him without any hesitation! Keep up the amazing, life saving, work Eric!

    Michelle Rose

    If I could give Eric 6 stars I would! I have seen a handful of therapists over the years and I have never felt as comfortable and received as many useful and lasting tools that I have received from our sessions with him. Eric is a compassionate, caring person, who has a passion for the work that he does and it shows greatly. He helped my husband and I strengthen our communication and overall relationship. I dont know where we would be today without him.

    Your Marriage or relationship has become overwhelming or worse on the brink of divorce. Truly, I tell you to search no further because Eric is the educated, experienced, dedicated, most importantly Licensed therapist you need to save your marriage from divorce. Hopefully, it hasn’t come to that however statistics have shown by the time a person seeks professional advice it is last resort. This is why it is so vital to ensure you are choosing the correct therapist as it might be the only chance it has to survive. My advice is coming as a Licensed healthcare professional myself who has seen many therapist and Eric has surpassed over 10 years of them ten-fold! He has personally brought my marriage where it should have been in the beginning. He has a way of being an advocate for both while achieving step by step goals to enhance the understanding and communication needed and much more! One thing I read that is powerful, “marriage counseling isn’t expensive, divorce is expensive!”.

    Jacob Voelkel

    Eric is amazing. He is very easy to conversate with and does an excellent job. He helped one of my loved ones so much. He is extremely knowledgeable with regards to substance abuse and mental health. He is a pro at de-escalation. I would refer anyone to him. He’s the best.


    Eric is a master communicator and caring therapist. He’s not the stereotype that listens to you cry about your day, ask, “how does that make you feel?” then take your money. Eric is the real deal and will help facilitate you looking deeper into yourself and help do the work necessary to get results (if you really want it).
    My wife and I went to Eric for 3 years after I unexpectedly lost my job, fell into depression and our relationship was at a breaking point. His insights and methods got us on the same page, communicating and sharing what we really wanted from each other and for our life together. I haven’t been back to see him in a few years but not a day goes by that I don’t use what I learned in his office.

    Lauraine Fogarty

    Mr. Eric Rhinehart’s commitment to excellence and high standards of ethical practices makes this review so easy for me. If there were more than five stars to give him, I would.
    If you’re in need of any of his service, you should call him today. Don’t put it off another moment. He’s truly the best.

    Shawnette Thomas

    I’ve had the pleasure of working with Eric for the past 7 years. He is one of the best therapist I’ve ever met. He establishes positive, trusting rapport with his clients. Eric has a strong sense of empathy and compassion to help his clients feel comfortable. He’s a great listener and communicator. Eric is able to think outside the box to create specific plans for his clients. If you are looking to make a change, I would highly recommend Eric. He is a very skilled therapist and will greatly contribute to helping you or your loved one improve their lives.

    Juli Greenwald

    Eric is such a good listener, kind, and compassionate. He is extremely knowledgeable in his field, and at the same time he talks to you like a respected peer, not some stiff nerd. Over the time Eric and I worked together he offered invaluable advice on a gamut of subjects. He always remembers the names and events that you talked about in the last session, which showcases his interest in what you’re saying. I have referred many friends and acquaintances to him at this point and all of them have said they love working with him. If you’re looking for a genuine and authentic therapist who listens with compassion and gives you really sound advice he’s your guy!

    K Smith

    Eric is the man! My wife and I have been going to Eric for the past couple months now and will continue to do so until he tells us we have to leave 🙂
    I can finally say that our marriage is in that spot we always knew it could be.. Actually, beyond that spot.
    We’re always working, it’s constant work, but Eric is teaching us how to acquire the proper tools for a successful marriage.
    I was never for counseling.. I figured people just need to toughen up and figure it out, but being a man of faith I felt God telling me that I needed to experience a relationship with Eric and for that I am extremely grateful.
    My wife and I are communicating on a level we never have before, we’re parenting on a level we never have before, and we’re in love on a level I never thought was possible.
    I am so excited about our future and realize that Eric has played an integral part in our success.
    Eric is an amazing communicator and not afraid to call you on your bull. He’s a straight shooter that calls it like it is, but relays his message in a very caring manner.
    God puts people in your lives for a reason.. If you’re reading this and have any feelings of hopelessness or helplessness within your personal life, your relationships, your marriage, your parenting…. CALL ERIC! He has changed our lives forever.
    My wife and I look forward to opportunities to communicate and talk through things, and we’re very excited and determined to continue down a healthy path with some great tools in our boxes.

    Eric is a fabulous clinician — insightful, affirming, effective. I have great trust and respect for Eric’s work, and I would recommend him to any individual or family. Leslie Silver, PhD, Clinical Psychologist

    Michael McGinnis (GoHP)

    Eric was masterful in making a great connection that was both influential and developed trust. He has a knack to make connections so that open and candid conversation can take place. Then he became a “guide on the side” to keep momentum moving forward and bring about lasting change. I am forever indebted to him for his help. Thank you Eric.

    Candis Inpirom

    I am super grateful for Eric. I found him during a time in my life when I was struggling through my relationship. I was comfortable right away and appreciated his calm, friendly demeanor. It can be difficult to seek out a therapist and sometimes scary, however, Eric does a great job of making you feel welcome and safe to open up. I book sessions from time to time to check in and most likely will continue to do that as I move forward in life.

    ray call

    Eric is easy to talk to. He listens intently to understand what I want from his sessions. Once he got to know me and my areas of needed improvement he made great suggestions for my growth. I felt like he really wanted to see me progress, and I am.

    Joanna Call

    Eric is such a good listener and allows you to speak until you are done without interrupting, making you feel thoroughly heard. Never have I have felt “less than” or as if I was meeting a stuffy old guy. I truly appreciates that he tries to relate/understand my point of view


    Kenneth Gooding

    Eric is a caring and qualified professional committed to supporting families. If you need of intervention call Eric!
    Highly recommend!

    If you’re reading this you’re probably familiar with the devastation that surrounds addiction and you’ve reached a point where you just don’t know what to do about it. You’ve heard about intervention and you wonder if it works, and specifically if Eric Rhinehart is the person up to the job. I can only relate my experience. It’s a difficult process. There’s no guarantee. . . . . . . no magic . . . . . . . just hard work and determination to follow the process and listen carefully to the guidance Eric provides. Eric brings knowledge, experience, and the compassion that’s needed. The intervention that I participated in was intense. It went off the rails within three minutes and I can honestly say, that if Eric wasn’t there, it would have ended then. But Eric managed to get “C” to come back and participate. And the ups and downs continued for hours and each time, Eric was able to finesse the situation. I was pessimistic that “C” would commit to going to an addiction center but, somehow, Eric managed to get him to agree. And I can’t say enough about Eric and the skill that he showed in the process. The next morning Eric and I drove “C” to the addiction center. It was a huge step, but it wasn’t the end. As Eric schooled us, there was no guarantee that “C” would complete the process. He could walk out at any time since he was there on his own free will. But Eric also told us that it was up to us to stand firm and tell “C” that he couldn’t come home until he was clean. Ten hours later, “C” walked out of the addiction center. He tried to come home that night and we told him not to or we would call the police. He called twice the next day and tried to convince his mother to let him come home and she stood strong and told him no. Two more days went by and he called again, this time to say he was going back into the addiction center and he promised to complete the program. Eric stayed in contact, even after the intervention, to provide whatever support he could for us and it is deeply appreciated. So as to the question, would I recommend Eric, that would be a resounding, YES!
