I highly recommend working with Trista if you are looking for a coach.
Craig has a unique technique that is very effective.
Our son relapsed in his drug / alcohol addiction which escalated rapidly & our lives were in chaos. Every attempt to get him to admit he needed to return to recovery was futile. I contacted a TWC staff member trying to seek direction. Another staff member called me back immediately & gave me Craig’s information. The compassion & expertise that Craig offered was second to none – once we hired Craig he flew to our city; the pre intervention with family was structured & planned in a very professional manner. Even though our son chose not to go with Craig that day, Craig continued to counsel & guide us for 3 weeks to the day our son agreed to go to TWC . Craig continues to counsel our son while in treatment, which has assisted him with being beneficial in his recovery. Craig has a unique technique that is very effective. Our family is forever grateful & highly recommend Craig. One Day at a time One step at a time.
This man can work miracles!
I first met Craig a year ago during family support zoom sessions. My daughter had just entered Westminster house for treatment and I was struggling with every part of my life. How did he see and feel my pain through a screen? I will never completely understand the connection I instantly had with him. When he reached out to me I knew I could trust him. Not only with myself, but my entire family!
Craig taught me that along with my children’s recovery, my partner and I also needed to find a sense of recovery. The chaos of addiction had taken a toll on both of us. Everyone’s lives had become unmanageable. Without Craigs guidance and support my family would still be in dire straits. The skills and resources he have given us are life changing. Today, not only is my daughter celebrating one year of recovery, but my two sons are also in recovery. How do you thank a man who has changed the course of your entire families’ lives? I will forever be grateful for his commitment to each and every one of us.
Don’t hesitate to call Craig for help. This man can work miracles!
Thanks just doesn’t seem enough.
If you have a loved one who is suffering from an addiction and you feel overwhelmed, hurt, confused, scared, powerless and hopeless, then I encourage you to contact Craig, as soon as possible. He was exactly the strength and guidance that our family needed in the time of our loved one’s addiction crisis. Craig takes charge of the entire heightened situation in a confident and professional manner. He communicates effectively, organizes every detail, pivots when necessary, and knows exactly what to do in every situation in regards with how to deal with a vulnerable family and the addict. Craig never gave up on us or our son who was struggling with addiction and was in denial. Craig was involved from the time we contacted him, throughout the intervention planning stage, and then, even after the intervention, he made sure that our son was settling into the treatment center and started on his path of recovery.
Craig was our rock and he got us through every minute of this very stressful time, never losing patience with us once. Craig is the one who got our son into TWC treatment facility and the one who convinced him to stay. We will be forever grateful for his service, his genuine caring demeanor and his vast knowledge and experience with addiction, addicts, families of addicts and recovery.
You can trust him to help both the families and the addict begin their life long journey to recovery. Thanks just doesn’t seem enough.
Craig was very professional and compassionate in his dealings with our family.
We were recommended Craig as an interventionist through the Together We Can team. Obviously like any family struggling with an addicted loved one we were overwhelmed and disheartened at the prospects for the future. Through our telephone conversation and one on one meeting with Craig we started to relax as we formulated a plan and one we could commit to! We were thrilled that we could act quickly to get him into treatment as space was made available.
Craig was very professional and compassionate in his dealings with our family. The intervention was successful in that our son accepted the help and has started the path forward and hopefully, ultimately to recovery.
We appreciate the regular updates and more importantly the reassurance that we have done what is best for our son! We are under no illusions that we are finished, however we can now see the path forward.
Thank you Craig, we look forward to our continued relationship through this journey.
R & T
A very satisfied family.
We met Craig from West Coast Interventions because we were seeking for help with a family pattern involving addictive behaviour that was so stuck we could not manage it on our own. Craig was recommended with a very high degree of confidence and respect. We met during a pre-intervention family meeting which immediately began to change our pattern because an experienced knowledgeable person outside our family was involved and assuming a high level of responsibility and influence over a new process. We were no longer stuck. Just having a new person involved who knew the process and who could stay focused and non reactive led to an outcome that was largely unexpected at one point in the intervention process. Our family member decided to go to the recommended treatment program with Craig’s support.
Craig treated all of us with respect and authenticity and was a pleasure to work with. He works with a team that has a high level of mutual respect and confidence. We would highly recommend Craig and his colleagues. Their commitment to assisting in change processes is very deep and real as well as effective.
A very satisfied family.
He has been true to his word.
We found Craig through a person that was involved in my son’s life. He actually called me once hearing our son’s story and told us what he did and what support he could offer us. He explained to us that he had a good record of getting people into treatment and was very confident that he could do this for our son. After hearing his story of his own journey of addiction and why he does what he does and his passion to help people like my son we did hire him. He has been true to his word, he got our son into treatment and he is always available to us if we need support and he regularly checks in on my son and reminds him that he has his back. This was very important to us that we knew he would follow up and not let our son fall through the cracks. He has also offered to follow up once our son is out of treatment to ensure our son will have the best support and know that Craig is there for him.
I am so grateful for Craig’s expertise and commitment to support my husband’s journey to recovery
“After many failed attempts to get my husband support, I realized his addiction was beyond anything I had the knowledge, skills or resources to handle. On one of our darkest days, I reached out to Together We Can and was referred to Craig Fluter.
When Craig learned more about our situation, he immediately came up with a plan suited for my husband and guided myself, my husband’s family and friends to an intervention. Throughout the intervention Craig counselled us to establish firm boundaries and took the time to build trust, both with myself and my husband who was in complete denial. It wasn’t an easy road getting my husband into treatment, but Craig patiently stood by him until he eventually committed to 60 days. The relief we all felt was indescribable and we owe this to Craig.
Over the course of my husband’s treatment, Craig continuously checked-in and provided a listening ear, sound advice and unbiased counsel to my husband, myself and family members. Now nearing the other side of 60 days, I can say our lives are all much calmer and my husband has committed to his sobriety. I am so grateful for Craig’s expertise and commitment to support my husband’s journey to recovery.
If you are at a complete loss and seeking to find a way out of the chaos of addiction, I highly recommend reaching out to Craig.”
Craig helped our family when my husband relapsed
“In March 2021 my husband was spiraling in a relapse. We were trying to care for our new baby who just had open heart surgery and our toddler during a pandemic that severely diminished our support system. I found myself spinning my wheels trying to help my husband in his relapse and the more I tried to help, the deeper we sank. I was ready to give up but I knew there was one person I needed to call before throwing in the towel. Craig Fluter.
Craig had done the impossible and got my husband into treatment in 2018 and I knew he’d be able to help us again. With one phone call, Craig was on it. We set up a day and time and Craig executed another intervention for my husband. It wasn’t easy. There was a lot of resistance. Craig was able to flawlessly counter my husband’s arguments from every angle and exhaust his efforts. My husband was willingly on his way back to treatment that night.
My husband is now 2 weeks sober and there is light at the end of the tunnel I could not previously see. Craig continues to call me with updates on my husband’s progress and works tirelessly to select the best supports based on my husband’s needs. I cannot thank Craig enough for not only his dedication to my husband’s sobriety, but the wellbeing of our whole family. If you’re stuck in a hopeless cycle with your addicted loved one, Craig Fluter is the call you need to make.”
Craig has been an integral part of Together We Can
Craig has been an integral part of TWC for the last ten years, so much that we acknowledge him as one of Canada’s Leading Interventionists. Craig has a deep-routed passion for all things recovery and proves this time and again with his high success rate of working with thousands of struggling individuals and their families. He has the knowledge and heart felt compassion to provide clear direction while allowing for zero enabling from the family and complete accountability for the individual. One of Craig’s many strengths is his family dynamic facilitation; where he often finds himself contacted from industry colleagues that are having challenges with a difficult case.
I cannot recommend Craig Fluter enough!
“In April 2018 my husband was at the height of his addiction. Our marriage was falling apart, we were in financial ruins and the situation felt hopeless. I had tried to help my husband time and time again and nothing was working. He just kept spiraling further. I was stuck in a complete cycle of insanity.
My husband’s family called Craig as a last resort. In a very short amount of time, Craig collected all the necessary details of the situation, created a plan and was ready to execute it. All we had to do was get my husband to show up for the intervention and Craig worked his magic. Within an hour Craig had conquered the seemingly impossible and my husband was on his way to treatment.
Craig hand picked a treatment center to best suit my husband’s needs and give him the best chance at success. Craig’s services didn’t end there. He connected me with family support, aftercare, continued to call me with details of my husband’s progress and met with me many times to help me work on myself and make some crucial changes to help break my enabling behaviors. There are no words to express the amount of gratitude I have for Craig’s expertise and willingness to help. If you find yourself in a hopeless situation with your addicted loved one, Craig Fluter is your guy. I cannot recommend him enough.”
