Cathy Cooke is a CDCA (Certified Drug Counseling Assistant) and Certified Interventionist Professional (CIP). She has worked with Sober Escorts, Inc. (SEI) for over a decade. SEI was founded in 2004 and provides a full spectrum of specialized services for individuals and families who suffer from addiction and co-occurring disorders designed to get those who need help into treatment, and support their longer term recovery upon discharge. These services include treatment consultation, sober transport, sober coaching and companions, case management and interventions.
Cathy is a graduate of The Ohio State Univerisity. She spent a large part of her career in sales and sales management with high tech companies. In 2011, after getting sober herself, she changed her career path to helping other families and individuals suffering from substance use disorder through the process of interventions, something she had hoped her family would organize years before she sought treatment. In addition to her work as an interventionist, she is also a sober and codependency coach. Growing up in a family with parents who suffered from alcoholism, she understands family generational trauma and the impact of addiction on the family, especially children. Her own recovery has included in depth work in the 12 step programs of Alcoholics Anonymous, Al-Anon, Co-Dependents Anonymous, and Adult Children of Alcoholics. Her focus and emphasis when working with a family is to support not only a family’s loved one, but also in supporting the family in their own work through treatment facility family programming, Al-Anon, individual therapy and longer term case management.
