Robert grew up in an alcoholic home, and then became a substance abuser himself. In 1988 he embarked on a road to recovery. Since becoming clean and sober, Robert returned to school and with his education and experience, he began working in the addiction profession in 1990. He has experience with in-patient, outpatient, individual & group counselling, as well as lecturing and facilitating workshops. Using his educational background accompanied with his addiction experience, he is helping others on their own road to recovery. He is now an International Certified Alcohol and Drug Counsellor and is a Canadian Certified Addiction Counsellor.
Robert's unique and passionate approach has gained him the respect of both addicts and professionals alike. This has occurred through a combination of his education, experience and his hope for the future of all recovering addicts and the ones who love and care for them.
Robert believes all addicts and the ones that love them have the ability to recover if they are willing to change. His mission is to assist people in developing personal strength and skills that will help them, help themselves, in a addiction-free lifestyle.
