Pacific Quest is proud to announce that Michael McGee, Family Program Manager and Clinical Support Specialist, has received the Certified Substance Abuse Counselor (CSAC) accreditation from the state of Hawaii. This is an internationally recognized credential and will allow Mike to further support Pacific Quest clients.
In addition to his work leading our adolescent Family Program workshops, Mike has been meeting with clients in our young adult program that have demonstrated a need for recovery coaching. Mike utilizes a unique blend of motivational interviewing, psychoeducation, and personal experience to work with individuals with histories of substance use, addictive patterns, and compulsive behaviors. Mike states, “My goal is always to meet people where they are at, help them create a model of recovery that works for them, and help plan a strategy that will make their recovery goals a reality. I’m really looking forward to gaining more experience in this area and excited to assist our students on their individual journeys.”
