MICHAEL TROUT
MA, MSW, LCAS, CCS
Michael is a recovering addict who understands the difficulties involved in stopping alcohol and drug use and other addictive behaviors, and in developing a positive and productive lifestyle. He has over 15 years of experience as an Addictions Counselor. He is a Masters Addiction Counselor, a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist, a Certified Clinical Supervisor, and a Certified Forensic Evaluator. Michael has worked in state mental health and hospital settings, and is familiar with the needs of clients and their families when it comes to recovery.
Michael uses a solution-focused approach to individualize each client's treatment and aid them in developing the skills and resources needed to cope with the internal and external issues preventing from achieving an alcohol/drug-free lifestyle. Michael also incorporates a 12-Step approach for maintaining recovery. The support of others who are or have been in similar situations is a great resource to prevent relapse.

While working with clients who have difficulty with substance abuse and problems with mood disorders, depression, and other mental health issues, Michael incorporates REBT, MI, and Cognitive and Behavioral Modification to help each client better understand themselves and reach an optimum level of abstinence. The treatment programs offered are not for the timid, but are effective, challenging and fun. Gaining and maintaining a lifestyle free from the punishment of addiction requires work, dedication, and a sense of humor.
