Author[edit]

Seeley is the author of Face It and Fix It,[2] 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".[3]

Interventionist[edit]

Seeley has remained involved, professionally and personally, in recovery since 1989. In an early episode of Intervention he revealed he was once addicted to crystal meth.[4] He is a Level II Board Registered Interventionist, and works to save lives every day as the founder of Intervention-911,[5] a service specializing not just in interventions but also in finding appropriate treatment centers for each kind of addict.[6] Today, Seeley lives with his partner, Eric McLaughlin in Palm Springs, [7]"Alcohol & Drug Intervention Services".
