Are alcohol or drugs controlling you or someone you know? In recovery wondering “what’s next, and how do I get there?” Worried about relapsing after treatment? Is your current recovery approach not working?
I engage with my clients at any stage of behavioural change and all the way through their journey in recovery.
Recovery Coaching is appropriate for someone who:
- is coming directly out of an in-patient treatment facility
- is exploring recovery for the first time
- requires discretion and won’t go to a support group
- is missing work or is in danger of losing their job
My work helps accelerate people’s progress by providing greater focus and awareness on personal choices, actions and responsibility related to their lifestyle change. I will help you create an existence where using alcohol or drugs is not a priority.
“Medical Monitoring – Drug and Alcohol Testing”
Knowing their drug use is being monitored can be a powerful incentive for my clients and can help them withstand urges to use substances. Monitoring also provides an early indication of a return to drug or alcohol use, signaling a possible need to adjust an individual’s treatment plan to better meet his or her needs.
External monitoring has shown to increase positive recovery outcomes by as much as 90%. My monitoring program utilizes state of the art technology to develop an accountability partner relationship at all stages of recovery. I can partner with you, your employer, family, or professional organization to ensure recovery compliance, abstinence, and safety.
80% of people leaving an addiction treatment centre relapse within the first year of discharge.
Of this 80%, 9 out of 10 relapse within the first 90 days after treatment.
Working with a recovery coach can significantly reduce the risk of relapse for those who recently completed treatment.
Recovery coaching bridges the gap between addiction treatment and long-term recovery.
My problems with alcohol and drugs cost me many things in life. I lost jobs, friendships, relationships and myself because of it.
One day in 2002 a friend delivered me to a detox facility in Vancouver. That was the early uncovering of one side of the double-life I was living while using alcohol and drugs. The other side was a successful career that provided me a great life. Although it was anything but clear to me at the time, I was in the early stages of a transformational journey that would allow me, for the first time, to live a happy and honest life while finding out who this amazing Michael really was.
