Michele works specifically with women living with opioid use disorder, and meets each patient “where they’re at” on the path to recovery. Understanding that many women lead busy days consumed with work and children, Michele is available during evening hours to accommodate as many patients as possible.
Michele’s own struggles with drug misuse began when she was 15 and continued for the next 25 years. Now that she is a Certified Recovery Specialist, she is inspired to get her message out to other women still struggling. She says, “Just because someone feels like they’ve hit rock bottom, my job is to encourage them that it can get better.”
