Donna Chavous, CCMI, CIP
Donna Chavous entered the recovery community in 1995 kicking and screaming: not wanting to change her life. She was introduced to recovery through an intervention by friends, family and the local police department. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Donna graduated from the University of Southern California with a bachelor’s degree in English. She stepped into the fast lane as a Hollywood Agent and eventually crashed and burned.
After getting sober, Donna returned to Hollywood before suffering the loss of a colleague and a client from the disease of addiction. These losses dramatically changed her perspective on life. She ended up taking a job at a treatment center in Malibu, California. While working there, Donna further deepened her knowledge about addiction’s effects on the family. She has now been sober for 15 years. Her experience with people from all walks of life allows her to compassionately guide those looking to make a positive change.
Donna loves the intervention process. Not only did it save her life, but it also transformed her entire family dynamic. She now resides in New York City and has been performing interventions nationwide for eight years.
