Meet Michael Walsh
Substance Use + Addictions Specialist
From the outside it looked like I was on top of the world: big cities, great jobs, and good friends. I was living life in the fast lane.
In reality, however, I was living a double life – and the glamour quickly wore off.
My life was a mess and it was only a matter of time before the bottom would fall out. Chasing successful careers fuelled by high-octane drug and alcohol use, I was eventually faced with a choice: sober up enough to have my next drink and line of cocaine and continue the path of self-destruction, or get sober, seize life, and reinvent.
Michael’s extended story can be found here.
That was the old Michael. Now, I provide customized substance use and addiction services to those who are ready to get more out of life.
My services include:
- Sober Coaching & Sober Companions
- Interventions & Case Management
- Alcohol & Drug Consulting & Coaching
I work with individuals, families, employers, in-patient treatment centres, disability and occupational health providers, insurance companies, government agencies, and small-to-medium-size enterprises.
I'm fortunate to live on one of the most beautiful islands in the world: Vancouver Island — in Duncan British Columbia, Canada. My work puts me in contact with local clients here on Vancouver Island, as well as those located all over North America. I work with clients both in-person and through telephone, text, and email.
I've been there. I know what it's like. I can help.
