Ken Seeley, born Kenneth R. Seeley on October 25, 1962, is an interventionist and author. He is best known for his appearances on the A&E reality show, Intervention.

Author

Seeley is the author of Face It and Fix It,[1] published by HarperOne in 2009. The book is about overcoming the denial that leads to common addictions while bringing guidance to those struggling with addiction. Face It and Fix It has been said to "leave you with a greater sense of self-awareness and the skills you need to both improve your relationships and to live the life you deserve".[2]

Interventionist

Seeley has remained involved, professionally and personally, in recovery since 1989[3]. He is a Level II Board Registered Interventionist, and works to save lives every day as the founder of Intervention-911, a service specializing not just in interventions but also in finding appropriate treatment centers for each kind of addict.[4] His organization is one of the most prominent and successful private intervention services in the country.

Certified by the National Association of Drug and Alcohol Interventionists[5], Seeley himself has been clean and sober since July 14, 1989.[6] Since then, he has worked full-time in the business of recovery.

Television Star

Seeley's remarkable knowledge and unique perspective have made him a go-to expert on the subject of addiction and intervention with the media, where he's a regular contributor for CNN [7] , MSNBC, NBC, CBS, Fox, ABC, and many others. Seeley was one of three featured interventionists on the Emmy Award Winning Television Series Intervention on A&E.

Today, Ken still derives the greatest personal satisfaction from the hundreds of interventions that he has conducted, organized and facilitated through Intervention-911.
