About Us

Steven Sweeney is a certified cognitive-behavioral therapist, post-betrayal transformation practitioner, life coach, and the author ofSo You’ve Been Betrayed – Now What?

His books are designed to teach readers how to use their personal trauma as opportunities for personal growth and success in the pursuit of happiness.  He’s a life long serial entrepreneur who started earning $5.00 per week playing the piano at Sunday School when he was 12 years old.  

In July of 1984, C. Steven Sweeney, Founder of Good Success, began his counseling career at Catawba Mental Health Center, in Rock Hill SC. While in this entry‐level position as a Therapeutic Assistant in the Structured Intensive Care Day Program for the mentally ill, Steve enrolled in the graduate degree program for Community Guidance Counseling at Winthrop College. In 1986, Steve was the first African American male to earn a Master of Education Degree in Counseling from Winthrop College, now Winthrop University.

After completing grad‐school in 1986, Steve applied for a position at the York County Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse, now known as Keystone Substance Abuse Services. It was his first position as an outpatient substance abuse counselor and the beginning of his career.

In 1991. Steve was offered the opportunity for employment at Lancaster Recovery Center (LRC), an organization listed as one of the top 100 inpatient alcohol and drug treatment facilities in the United States. Steve remained at LRC for ten years, during which time he was provided with opportunities to work in many different areas of the organization in addition to counseling. His experiences there laid the foundation for the formation of his own company. Steve credits LRC for motivating him to excel as a counseling professional and instilling the importance of providing high quality, comprehensive, integrated clinical and non‐clinical recovery support services, as well as how to establish and maintain enduring community partnerships through consultation and collaboration.

Steve began working with York County Juvenile Drug Court in 2003 while working at Catawba Mental Health Center. In 2005 he decided to form his own company. Without interruption for the last 16 years, after multiple times of being awarded new contracts, Good Success has provided treatment services to York County Adult and Juvenile Drug Treatment Courts. During 5 of the 16 years, Good Success provided services to the York and Lancaster County Juvenile Drug Courts.
