ABOUT THE SPEAKER
I founded S. Dillon Consulting in 2011 in order to fulfill my passion for helping families affected by addiction. I have performed over a hundred successful interventions across the U.S. and my experience, strategy, and intervention model has allowed me to successfully help those affected by this all-too-present problem. This includes family members and other loved ones who begin their own path of recovery immediately.
I am a State Certified Level 4 Addiction Treatment Counselor, a Nationally Certified Mental Health and Addiction Intervention Professional, am Certified in Alcohol/Drug Addiction and Trauma, and have BA and MA degrees.
Being in long-term recovery myself, combined with my clinical and intervention education and training, I am in a position to relate, empathize, and guide those suffering and their loved ones on a path of long-term recovery. I believe compassion, experience, understanding, and education are key to helping others.
Addiction is a brain problem, so perhaps the most interesting, exciting and effective result of developing a model to help those affected by addiction is the necessity to help others study the brain. That is, how it works, why it operates the way it does, how it became addicted, and how to change it from a negative habitual state to a positive one.
