A Conversation with A&E’s Candy Finnigan
We are so honored to have Candy come share her experience. It will be a night of prevention, education, and information on family intervention. You may not have a struggle within your own family, but please come to help raise awareness.
Candy has extensive experience as an interventionist and has been a group facilitator for many years, with both adults and adolescents. Candy worked with the students at Beverly Hills High School as a drug and alcohol specialist/counselor for 11 years, acting as facilitator of the “Sober Lunch” program. She is a Certified Master Addiction Counselor III and a Board Registered Interventionist II. She belongs to the Association of Intervention Specialists.
Personally in recovery for over 28 years, Candy states, “I was inspired to go into this work because I saw that as a recovering woman, I might be able to connect with suffering people in a way that others couldn’t,” she says. “It’s not just my work, it’s my life.” Candy has been married for 45 years. She and her husband Mike have two grown children: son, Kelly, and daughter, Bridget.
Currently, she is one of the featured interventionists on the acclaimed A&E series “Intervention” and has been since the beginning of the show in 2004. Candy’s book, When Enough is Enough, was published by Penguin/Avery in April 2008. Candy is a Certified Master Addiction Counselor III and a Board Registered Interventionist II.
