Cy Hirsche started his career as a successful entrepreneur who founded multiple companies in the software industry. However, personal circumstances and a passion for helping others led him to make the life-changing career choice to become a recovery specialist. Cy is a creative, flexible and dedicated professional who brings his keen business skills, savvy communication and passion to serve in the behavioral health field.
Cy attended Utah State University and Brigham Young University and is advancing his studies in addiction counseling at Utah Valley University. He is also a certified Interventionist and Sober Coach. Prior to Chateau Recovery, Cy was a client liaison specialist at one of the world’s most reputable treatment facilities. There he gained firsthand knowledge of the individual needs that must be addressed in order for clients to experience successful long-term recovery. Cy also held Director level positions at other programs throughout his career and truly feels blessed to be involved with the dynamic team at Chateau Recovery. He is excited to use his skill sets to influence change and inspire hope. Cy is in recovery himself and has a love for his work because he knows firsthand the misery of chemical dependency and the joy of recovery. He has great compassion for those struggling with addiction and truly loves to help clients find their way into the empowerment of recovery.
Cy volunteers and has contributed to many high schools’ annual red ribbon weeks, where he shares his recovery story with hundreds of high school students. He sits on the DARE committee in Utah where he works with youth to help them understand the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse. Cy played an instrumental role in bringing hope and recovery to men and women in jail and prison as he has spoken multiple times per year to inspire hope and change.
When asked what drew Cy to join the Chateau Team, he said, “Throughout my career I have been blessed with the opportunity to work with some of the worlds most esteemed treatment centers. With that experience I have learned that addiction is not a “one size fits all” solution but truly an individual process. At Chateau I am excited to pair my skills with such a talented and dynamic group of like-minded professionals. My experience has taught me that lasting change comes when we empower our clients to take accountability and invest in their lives and with that empowerment comes choice. I’m thrilled to be part of that choice, here at the Chateau!”
