Advent Recovery’s chief coach, Todd Dempsey not only has personal experiences that inspired his passion for working with those in the need of recovery, psychological, and addiction services but he is also a highly trained Addictions Recovery professional who has been awarded high honors at many nationally accredited institutions whose primary focus are in the fields of Psychology, Sociology, Addiction Studies and Substance Abuse Counseling. Other agencies only provide coaches who are provided with a limited number of hours of Recovery Coaching training that often do not amount to much more than 60-90 hours of self study from non-accredited institutions. Beside his comprehensive and accredited educational background, Mr. Dempsey is also a nationally certified Crisis Intervention and Sexual Assault Prevention Specialist who has spent countless hours working in the fields of Addiction Counseling, Prevention services and Crisis management. Todd is also responsible for creating the Comprehensive Overdose Prevention Education (C.O.P.E.) program, the first Overdose Prevention program presented in the state of Delaware and has volunteered hundreds of hours on Delaware’s only Needle Exchange Program as well as the 1st State’s primary Crisis Intervention Lifeline. Todd has spent numerous years working directly with those in dire need of compassionate human services and addiction education. His credentials and experiences continue to serve as a great resource for both our community and our clients.
