About Steve:

I founded S. Dillon Consulting LLC in 2011 in order to fulfill my passion of helping families affected by addiction. I have performed hundreds of successful interventions across the U.S. and my experience, strategies 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 Nationally Certified Intervention Professional, Masters Level Addiction Treatment Counselor, , 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 loves ones on a path of long-term recovery. I believe compassion, experience, understanding and education are key to helping others.
