ABOUT KEN SEELEY

Ken SeeleyKen 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 profoundly change the lives of people who suffer from the disease of addiction – for addicts, the addict’s family, and their friends. Ken works to save lives every day as the founder of Intervention911, 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 on “Intervention and the Continuum of Care” to help 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, or 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, Ken realized that recovery is a process and takes time. Addicts do not stay sober with just an intervention and treatment; it is all about the continuum of care and subsequent follow-up, just like any other illness. In 2008, Intervention911 initiated the RAP program which supports the recovery process for addicts and their families for one to five years. In 2011, Seeley opened Ken Seeley Communities, a sober living community in Palm Springs, CA, and in 2015 will open an Intensive Out-Patient Program to help create the seamless continuum of care to support the person suffering with an addiction. By offering services pre and post treatment, Seeley has sought to provide all the supportive services around treatment.

As you can see, Seeley’s personal experience of addiction and recovery fuels his desire to impact others in similar situations. Ken grasps the 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. Seeley 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.

Seeley’s remarkable success rate has turned him into one of the most sought-after interventionists in the country. Doctors and health care professionals look to people like Ken 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.
