Ken Seeley, CIP, CCMI–M, CTP-4, CATC
Ken Seeley has remained professionally and personally involved in recovery since his sobriety date of July, 14, 1989. He applies his relevant experience and boundless enthusiasm to change the lives of people suffering from the disease of addiction – for addicts, their family, and their friends. Ken works to save lives every day as the founder of Intervention 911, one of the most prominent and successful private intervention services in the country. Ken is featured on the Emmy Award Winning and 2015 Emmy Nominated A&E television series Intervention. He is often asked to speak on addiction. Ken was honored to present to the British Parliament about “Intervention and the Continuum of Care” to create lasting recovery for those suffering from this disease.
Ken is a Certified Intervention Professional, Board Registered Interventionist Level II, Registered Addiction Specialist, and Certified Addiction Treatment Counselor. Today, Ken still derives the greatest personal satisfaction from the hundreds of interventions he has conducted, organized, and facilitated through Intervention 911.
In 2007, Ken held one of the first trainings for interventionists in London and now conducts up to five intervention trainings a year. After years in the recovery industry, he realized that recovery is a process that takes time. Addicts do not stay sober with just an intervention and treatment; it’s all about the continuum of care and subsequent follow-up, just like any other illness. In 2008, Intervention 911 initiated the RAP program, which supports the recovery process for addicts and their families for one to five years. In 2011, Ken opened Ken Seeley Communities, a sober living community in Palm Springs, CA. In 2015, he opened an Intensive Out-Patient Program to create the seamless continuum of care to support the person suffering with an addiction. By offering services pre- and post-treatment, Ken has sought to provide all the supportive services around treatment.
Ken’s personal experience of addiction and recovery fuel his desire to impact others in similar situations. He has a full understanding of the addict’s behavior. His innate compassion for fellow addicts continually bolsters his ability to connect and communicate with addicts and their families. Ken has applied his personal struggle with addiction to the intervention equation. This is an asset that has become a valuable catalyst in Intervention 911’s and Ken Seeley Community’s impressive results.
Ken’s remarkable success rate has turned him into one of the most sought-after interventionists in the country. Doctors and healthcare professionals look to people like him to solve their patient’s addiction and mental health issues. His knowledge and unique perspective have also made him the #1 go-to expert on the subject of addiction and intervention with the media, where he’s a regular contributor for CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, FOX, ABC, and many others.
