Matthew Silva earned a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, Masters in Rehabilitation Counseling and Masters in Business Administration. Matt is also a Certified Reciprocal Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor. He considers himself extremely fortunate to have been able to study and be supervised by Jack Platt, an extremely brilliant and nationally recognized therapist.
He struggled with a personal addiction which began a journey into his own recovery and a new love for life. This journey was the start of a desire to learn more about addictions so that he could assist others.
He has worked at BJC Behavioral Health as a Community Support worker, SSM St Joseph Hospital as a Psychiatric Therapist, and Director/Service Coordinator of SSM New Vision Detoxification unit. More recently he served as a substance abuse counselor and Vice President of Operational Affairs for Assisted Recovery Centers of America.
One of Matt's more recent projects was the co-founding of the Temperance House, which has been a successful transitional home for individuals in recovery.
