Next Steps: Alcohol/Drug Recovery Support for Adults

For adult men and women seeking the support of others to help them identify and work through the next steps of their personal program of recovery. While we respect 12 Step approaches, we are interested in helping those who are looking for an alternative to 12 step programs. We utilize an integration of evidence-based and theory-based interventions drawn from cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness practice, and practical application of emerging research in neuroscience. Our work is informed by practical application of interpersonal neurobiology and regulation theory. In a word, we emphasize the transformative power of self care, abstinence and seeking support in healthy relationships.

Every Monday, 7:00 — 8:30pm

Fee: $40

“From personal therapy sessions with Michael and from men’s groups that Michael runs, I have obtained the advice and guidance I need to confront the challenges of life as a single father of two young children. I recommend Michael to anyone who is confronted with serious life issues and who seeks the service of a truly exceptional therapist.”
— Gary
“Michael’s insight and guidance have been crucial to my recovery, allowing me to break free from my downward spiral of addiction and live a more meaningful and fulfilling life. He continues to give me the tools I need to create a path forward that feels genuine and achievable.”
“I just wanted to thank you for pointing me in the direction of your Monday night group. I really have a good time and learn a lot from everyone there. It is just a great group of people who seem to take recovery seriously and also can laugh at themselves at the same time. I found in this group what I hoped I would out of AA.”

— Brendan
“I had nearly given up hope of ever living a life free from dependence on alcohol when I met Michael. He was able to help me understand myself in ways no other counselor, rehab or program ever had. With his help I’ve been sober over 10 years now.”
“Michael helped us find an addiction treatment center for our son. It is a heart breaking, lonely, stressful time for parents, and Michael was calm and professional. Once our son was safely in treatment, Michael invited us to his family group. We were welcomed by the other families and the group is directed by Michael. It was so reassuring to have a safe place to discuss our son and our worries. And nice to have input from other parents and share our experience with them. Because of the stigma of mental health and addiction, we were very cautious to open up to anyone- family or friends, about our son’s addiction. It was such a relief to be among friends and find support! Thank you Michael for offering this group, it is so appreciated.”
“The group members change and stay the same each month we have been fortunate enough to attend. My husband and I have found the sessions to be educational and a good place “to lick the wounds” of our family disease from mental illness, drug and alcohol addiction. Our son has struggled as far back as we can remember and he is now almost forty years old. The group helps us with making a path to right a wrong and not become totally defeated. Michael Galloway’s knowledge and experience with a great deal of kindness keeps providing tools to give us strength to keep seeing the positives in our lives! Mental illness, drugs and alcohol still suck!”
“Micheal has been our son’s counselor for several years. Our son has complex neurological and addiction conditions which exacerbate one other. Michael is gifted in so many ways, but perhaps the most impressive is the way he can connect and build trust and rapport people who struggle with dual diagnosis issues. Michael is so approachable and has given our son tools to use in addressing the multiple challenges that he faces. Michael has keen awareness of our son’s struggles and has been able to think outside the box in finding solutions that work for our son. Michael also meets with our family and has helped us to navigate the challenges that our son’s mental health and chemical dependence issues bring. The groups that Michael runs in addition to the individual sessions are also very well run. Michael has a very skilled approach of making sure that everyone is honored and heard without putting people on the spot. Michael has found ways of helping us form new connections with our son using healthy boundaries and goal setting. He uses creativity to help each person find supporting community resources beyond his own practice. He is someone you want on your team. I can’t say enough of what he has done for our family.”
