Board Registered Interventionist (Level) II
Donna Chavous entered the recovery community in 1995 kicking and screaming, not wanting to change her life. She was introduced to recovery through an intervention by a friend, her family and the local police department.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Donna graduated from the University of Southern California with a bachelor's degree in English and headed straight to the Hollywood scene. She stepped into the fast lane, representing actors as a Hollywood agent, and eventually crashed and burned.
A few years after getting sober and returning to Hollywood, she suffered the loss of a colleague and a client from the disease of addiction. These losses dramatically changed her perspective on life, so she decided to take a job at a treatment center in Malibu, California.
While working at the treatment center, Donna further enhanced her knowledge of how addiction affects the family as well as the patient. Sober for 16 years, she believes that her experience with people from all walks of life has enabled her to utilize her gift of gab to compassionately guide those who need help to make a positive change.
Donna loves the intervention process. It saved her life and has allowed her to assist others in potentially saving theirs. She currently resides in New York City and has been performing interventions nationwide for the past nine years.
