Founded in 2016, Music City Interventions was started with the belief that every person deserves the best life imagined. Whether the individual suffering from addiction or their loved ones, we are prepared to help all individuals who are affected by addiction. MCI is incorporated, carries professional liability insurance, and we have professional references from licensed treatment centers. We are trained in multiple intervention modalities, and we also offer a range of addiction treatment services for drugs and alcohol beyond intervention.

The team members at Nashville-based MCI are all in personal recovery themselves and can relate to both the addict/alcoholic as well as their family. We also have a number of professional qualifications for addiction treatment. Our physical office is located in Nashville, TN, but we have performed intervention and addiction treatment services throughout the continental United States.

At the lowest point in my life I sought help from MCI. Darren, Ryan and staff not only gave me the tools and knowledge to understand and address my addiction, they saved my life. I will be forever grateful for MCI and what it did for me & my family.

Darren was so helpful in a time when my family needed it most. He guided us from planning the intervention through sober coaching after my brother left rehab.  He was there every step of the way. I don’t know how we could have done this without him. 6 months sober for the first time in a long time!  Thank you Darren!

After only one phone call with Ryan, everything that needed to be done to get my son into a treatment facility in Nashville was taken care of.  From the moment Darren picked my son up and drove him to Nashville, I knew that this was the best decision I could have made to finally get him the help he needed.  That was over 8 months ago, and I am absolutely convinced that MCI saved my son’s life.  I cannot thank them enough for what they’ve done for my son and for our entire family.

Ryan is so easy to work with, and  answers questions with such  confidence, you know you are doing the right thing in investing your money for the future of your loved one. Darren and Rodney were so helpful to us during the Intervention, and taking my texts and phone calls, and getting back to me in a timely manner. I am looking forward to having Coach Rodney take over for the next 90 days, and I will sleeping better. Thanks, MCI.


Darren Hobbs’ organization has exceeded my expectations! My son’s therapist recommended this group after I had been experiencing increasing out of control behavior with my 19 year old son. He decided not to go to college, would not get a job, was acting out destructively (breaking things in anger), and I felt so hopeless and powerless. We suspected that substance abuse was changing his personality (normally a very bright popular kid). Darren’s group helped my ex-husband and me to organize an intervention. We would have never been successful doing this on our own. Their group took the time to plan every single obstacle so that our efforts were successful. My son is very headstrong and resisted our efforts every step of the way. However, with Darren’s support, persistence, and guidance we finally persuaded our son to enter a 90 day treatment facility and he is drug-free today. I feel like I finally got my son back. In hindsight I see that before using Darren’s group, I was part of the problem and was actually harming my child when I had the best intentions to help him. Darren helped my son’s Dad and me to set appropriate boundaries in a loving way so that we took ourselves out as part of the problem. I would recommend Darren’s group to anyone struggling with a child or grown child whose life is spiraling out of control due to substance use. Using this group as a consultant was worth every penny and these guys know what they are doing!

I have been working with Darren at MCI for over a year. He has coached me through a very dark time in my life. My road to recovery is now bright, and I have hope!
