San Francisco, California Interventions: Alice's Bio

San Francisco Interventionists, Alice Tanner

Addiction Recovery Consulting Services was founded in 2000 by Alice Tanner, a former attorney and now an intervention specialist. Alice began her own recovery through a Systemic Family Intervention, the intervention model she primarily uses in her practice.  As a direct result of the Systemic Family Intervention she found help through a 28-day treatment program.

This rare background gives Alice the unique perspective of "knowing" first-hand where the alcoholic/addict is coming from, what it is like to be a patient in a 28-day treatment facility and how it feels to be on the receiving end of an intervention.  She understands the desperation and despair the alcoholic/addict feels, as well as the frustration, fear, anguish and suffering the family and friends live with.  She not only knows that interventions work and why, she is living proof. If you learn nothing more from this site than this, come away knowing there is help, there is hope.  You need not struggle alone any longer.

Prior to becoming an intervention specialist and business consultant, Alice practiced law for 12 years.  Her field of expertise was family law and criminal defense.  Both of these areas are fraught with addiction and the legal and emotional consequences that addiction brings.  This background coupled with her expertise in the field of addictive disease now allows Alice to work with families and their legal counsel when consequences of addiction result in legal entanglements. 

Alice is a member of NAADAC, CAADAC and EAPA*.  She works with the Other Bar of California, a group of recovering lawyers and judges dedicated to helping those afflicted with addiction disease in the legal community.  Currently, she is working with the Sonoma County Department of Health Services developing an outreach program that addresses chemical dependency in older adults.

Available to travel nationwide and abroad, Alice works with families far and wide, large and small.  Her clients come from all walks of life ranging in age from adolescent to senior citizen.  She helps families struggling with all addictions including chemical dependency, gambling, eating disorders, sexual compulsivity, work and internet addictions and dual-diagnosis.  Often, families are struggling with more than one addiction or multiple relapse which are all addressed.  Working with families pre, during or post treatment, and working with one family at a time, a program of health and healing is tailored and a new life for them begins.
