Chris Bennett is a native of Northern Virginia and has resided in various parts of Southern California since the spring of 2004.  Growing up, Chris’ passion was sports and he was focused on succeeding in football, lacrosse and baseball throughout his adolescence.  Chris was also a National Honor Society member.  Overall, Chris was an All-American kid who excelled in athletics and academics. After moving to an affluent area of Northern Virginia, Chris’ grades began to plummet and his lifestyle made a significant change.  During the summer after his 8th Grade year, Chris began his rapid descent into a drug and alcohol fueled lifestyle.  Chris’ adolescence was marred by involuntarily committal to various drug and at-risk, out-of-control adolescent rehabilitations including a wilderness program, expulsion from multiple schools and frequent arrests.   In 2004 Chris relocated to Southern California in an attempt to leave the East Coast and its troubles behind.  Shortly, Chris was back to where he left Virginia- in handcuffs facing significant prison time.  After seeking professional guidance for one last time, an intervention was staged by his parents.  Chris accepted the treatment.  Shortly after, Chris again left treatment and returned to Southern California. His parents held the line with him, utilized professional support and within 3 months, Chris made the best decision of his life (at the time, it was the worst day of his life) and began his first day of sobriety.  Notwithstanding some hiccups in his path of recovery, Chris entered a state of continual sobriety.  Since dedicating his life to recovery, he found his true passion which was to support those who were suffering from the depths of mental illness, addiction and the addiction fueled lifestyle in receiving the help that they deserve.  Chris was given an amazing opportunity to work in an intensive therapeutic community treatment modality with individuals suffering with severe mental illness, co-occurring disorders and various addictions. Three years later, after receiving an education in Alcohol and Other Drug Studies and a plethora of clinically oriented training including over two years of intervention specific education, training and supervision provided by an incredible Clinical Team, Chris began his vision to work with individuals and their families suffering from addiction and severe mental illness.  Intervention work is his passion and true calling in life. Chris now resides in San Diego with his beautiful wife, Ashley and his Dog, Hercules. Chris continues to live with a never ending determination to help those who understand the true depths and darkness of addiction and mental illness.

Chris currently holds a certification through the California Association of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselors (CAADAC) as a Level Two Certified Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselor (CADC-II) and also holds the Certified Intervention Professional (CIP) credential through the Pennsylvania Certification Board, the only nationally accredited certification for intervention specialists. Chris is also a Board Registered Interventionist (BRI-I) through the International Interventionist Credentialing Board (IICB). Intervention and Recovery Institute is an agency member of CAADAC, while Chris is an individual member of CAADAC, the Network of Independent Interventionists (NII) and The Association of Intervention Specialists (AIS). Chris is also Trust Line Registered with the California Department of Social Services in order to provide intervention and transportation services to adolescents.
