Scott Henrywestwood's bio

This content was provided by Scott Henrywestwood "Over the last 51 years of my life, I have gone from an athlete, a college graduate, a loyal friend, a surgical nurse, an executive healthcare administrator, to an alcoholic and addict with serious challenges. Since then, I've sought treatment, changed my life around, went back to school, became a substance abuse counselor, a clinical supervisor, an interventionist, a business owner, and a husband. But, above all I am a recovering alcoholic and addict celebrating long term sobriety, and years of service work -- formal and informal. I'm a substance and process addiction counselor with vast and varied experience helping others to find recovery through a variety of treatment options, challenges, and past failures. I am an interventionist. It's my passion for and belief in the recovery process that led me to help individuals and families get treatment for their addictions and mental health disorders. When a person and/or family realizes they've had enough, then the recovery process can begin. For me, it's been a journey across the treatment landscape, which has changed for the better over the years. I sought education, certification, and clinical work in order to ensure that the breadth of my training would complement the depth of my experience. From working one-to-one with alcoholics or addicts, to leading group sessions in inpatient/residential and outpatient programs, to monitoring someone through detox, from helping those with eating disorders - gambling - sex addiction, dual diagnosis cases to cutters, I've had the privilege of being present for countless miracles as well as the lessons of tragic failure. I enter homes where families are in crisis from alcohol, drug, and/or process addiction. I lead them in a sometimes desperate effort to reclaim a struggling loved-one. They don't know me, but they need me. I want you to get to know me, I want to earn your trust, and I want to help you."
