I simply want to thank Scott for your time and counsel in helping my son navigate through a very challenging and uncertain period in his life. He was a lost young man and doesn’t bond easily with people. And then we found YOU! He trusts you and feels that you can relate to him. You have given him a safe haven to express himself, and I feel so blessed that we found you. Your approach to coaching him is spot on. You work to equip him with the tools necessary to make progress and take steps toward his future.

Scott H. Silverman is a gift. This multifaceted motivator shows how one person can not only make a difference in this world, that when done right, will leave a tidal wave of others making a difference in their wake. I call what he does “Ripple Effect Inspiration.” In my case, he inspired the UN-inspirable. Scott was able to motivate me to step out of my comfort zone and become something I had always wanted to be.
I’m currently working and going to school, advocating for youth justice, running a marathon, formulating a independent business, writing, learning, providing for my family, just overall becoming a man and maintaining. Your word helped shape this progression. Thanks a thousand more times.
I found Mr. Scott Silverman’s story very inspirational because he used the second chance that he was given to help others. I enjoy his effective no non-sense approach because it is refreshing and gives people the jolt that they need to face the truth, change and take action. The greatest people on earth that have the most impact are those that use their lives to help people. Mr. Silverman is great because he is one of those people.

With decades in the area of rehabilitation, Scott’s clinical experience is exceptional. But he’s also “walked a mile in your shoes.” There are lots of counselors, educators, and executives in the field of recovery, but the most effective ones are able to couple their personal experiences with their schooling and find the balance between the two. Scott has mastered this concept. One of the hardest things to do in the arena of addiction recovery is to show grace, yet be simultaneously unyielding. Scott is able to harmonize between the two and proportionally adjust to meet the needs of each individual. This allows the client to not only feel safe, but accept and receive direction as well.
We knew she needed help, but we had no idea how to help her. We saw signs of drug abuse, but we felt like our hands were tied. As her parents there was very little we could say that she would listen to, but she listened to Scott.
Finally, she was listening to a person that had traveled the road of addiction. Scott didn’t talk at her; instead he listened to her, interjecting humorous stories of his past. Scott made my daughter feel at ease and totally comfortable. Honestly, I don’t think she ever realized she was being coached. He met her where she was at and understood the feelings that she was experiencing. During their time together, my daughter came to the realization that she needed help. She willingly decided to go to an outpatient facility, and that one decision changed the trajectory of her life.
Drug addiction is a family disease, and we needed an outside source, someone separate from our family to bring clarity to the situation and that person was Scott.
Thank you, Scott for bringing our family out of the chaos.
I wanted to reach out to you and let you how relieved we are that we discovered you and your services. As you know, we have struggled mightily with my wife’s daughter and we were at the end of our rope with her. The addiction, the abuse and the dishonesty was beyond all levels of toleration. We went to many therapists and even a local out-patient facility. Nobody and no rehabilitation program were creating any results until we met & hired you.
Your ability to cut through and disarm the verbal assaults of our daughter is masterful. You are highly skilled and competent which is exactly what we needed to begin establishing peace and order in our house. You also have the ability to demonstrate love & support to our daughter that will allow the opportunity for healing to take place. We can’t thank you enough for the tremendous work you’re doing.
