Important Information About CDI

Chemical Dependency Intervention Services Inc, or "CDI", was formed by a group of treatment industry insiders whose primary goal is providing ethically sound treatment solutions to anxious or frightened families unable to cope with the addict or alcoholic in their family.

CDI is an independent company and doesn’t accept outside commissions from treatment centers. Our lack of affiliation with treatment centers ensures we locate the best treatment solution for our clients.

We don’t sugar coat addiction or recovery – getting clean is tough, we know, we did it. Your loved one can too. We understand that most families devastated by addiction have been lied to, cheated, and stolen from. The last thing a family needs when seeking treatment for a loved one is more deception. Our pledge to you is that we will act with integrity and honesty throughout every step of the process.
