Confidential Recovery Solutions For Alcohol & Drugs
I’ve been there.
When I say I’ve been there, I mean it.
I have done the “all-nighters” — sometimes many days in a row. I was often the last one up. I experienced many black-outs, job losses, financial difficulties, brushes with the law, and I hurt many people. I hid, justified and lied about my problematic drinking and cocaine use. I lived a double life with cover ups, irritability, anger, sadness and depression.
I've been to a detox facility twice, drug and alcohol in-patient rehab twice, hundreds of support groups and many counselling sessions to get to where I am today. All character building stuff a long time ago. I am a different person now.
I've held many positions within my field of work in the non-profit, public health and private sector prior to launching my own company. I’m fired up about helping other people get to the place where they, too, are living better, healthier, and bigger lives. I work with discretion and confidentiality. Today I provide discrete customized services including Sober Coaching, Sober Companions, Safe Passage Sober Transportation, Treatment Placement, Case Management, Invitational Interventions and Drug and Alcohol Consulting services to a variety of individual clients, families, private enterprise, insurance companies, Veterans Affairs Canada, treatment centres and many other entities.
I'm Michael. Today I am one of Canada's leading Sober Coaches, Interventionists and Substance Use & Addiction Specialists. I absolutely love my job!

I am an influencer in my field of work. The field has changed a lot and Sober Coaching is more known now than it was five years ago and surprise interventions are few and far between.
