Certified Recovery Specialist

Meet Michele

Michele Martin, a Certified Recovery Specialist (CRS), practices at The Wright Center for Community Health Mid Valley Practice. After 18 years in recovery, Michele decided to use her experience to help others on their journeys out of addiction. “I felt that there was a gap between treatment and the community that needed to be filled,” she says. “I believe the role of the CRS is to bridge that gap.”

Michele was drawn to The Wright Center for Community Health because of its collaborative spirit and patient-centered approach. “Treating the whole person – body, mind and spirit – within one organization is … the approach the health care system needs,” she says, “and I believe that The Wright Center is at the forefront of this approach.” She works specifically with women living with addiction, striving to help each along the pathway to a dynamic, fulfilling life. 

Michele is a Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) certified provider. In addition to encouragement and support, Michele provides her clients with resources such as the 12-step SMART Recovery and Celebrate Recovery programs. She keeps up with the latest trainings available to recovery specialists; however, her most valuable asset is her own story. “I stand as proof that recovery really is possible,” she says. 

A lifelong Dunmore resident, Michele is one of six children of Michael and the late Betty Saresky. She is attending Grand Canyon University to attain a degree in counseling with an emphasis on addiction, chemical dependency and substance abuse. She expects to complete the program in 2020. Meanwhile, she enjoys volunteering with the STOP Coalition, as well as within her church and the recovery community. She also has worked with the international recovery community “Comunita Cenacolo” during a three-month experience in Italy. In her free time, Michele loves music and plays guitar.
