Michael West

Alumni Coordinator

Michael began working at Southern Live Oak Wellness in February of 2020 as a Behavioral Health Technician. Michael joined the SLOW team after working in a Recovery Residence for addiction and alcohol abuse, in hopes of being able to continue to make a difference in the lives of those who struggle with substance abuse as well as mental illness. 
 
Michael developed a passion for working in the treatment field through firsthand experiences of his own.  He struggled with a strong addiction for many years before it began to take a toll on his mental health as well. He has seen the mental health treatment field through the eyes of a patient, which sparked a desire to help others to get through the same things that he went through himself. 
 
Michael now works as the Alumni Coordinator, working with past clients who have completed the program at SLOW. He emphasizes the importance of continued care after treatment, as well as having a sense of community with one’s peers. Overcoming mental illness is a continuous process, so working with clients after they complete the program is of vital importance, to ensure that everyone has the support system that they need to continue to grow.
