Max has been helping young men cope with the disease of addiction for the past 6 years. Max specializes in recovery-based coaching for men seeking all aspects of well-being within their recovery journey. He helps young men move through important decision-making processes with heart-centered purpose.Throughout Max’s career, he has helped hundreds of adolescents and adults find recovery.
Since recovery looks different for everyone, Max assists young men in finding their own path. Some of these paths include: seeking education, sharpening job interviewing skills, re-entering social opportunities like going to a ball game or service work, finding friendships that are healthy and intimate, and revisiting or finding new hobbies and interests. As a recovery coach and a member of recovery, Max is able to help men with accountability, building their recovery plan, goal setting, relapse prevention planning, discovering recovery supportive communities, and the quest of spirituality.
By the time Max had reached the age of 18, he had been exposed to over a dozen substance abuse facilities. With the help of his family, addiction professionals, and a recovery community, Max is happy to report that he has been in recovery for 7 years. Recovery has given Max the ability to experience pure freedom from his addiction and has allowed him to live a beautiful, meaningful life.
Max earned a Bachelor’s of Arts in Social Work from the University of Belmont, which included two internships in drug and alcohol treatment and a dual diagnosis treatment center. In addition, Max is certified in the state of Pennsylvania as a recovery specialist.
During his free time, Max enjoys hiking, fishing, playing basketball, traveling, and participating in his own recovery. He is grateful to have a supportive group of friends and family as well as his girlfriend and dog, Milly.
