Madison Manager

Rob believes that another side of listening is making sure  clients know they’re being seen and heard, and that they understand their choices instead of feeling left to move ahead on their own. Rob wants to ensure each client that he's following up; that's how he earns goodwill and a stellar reputation for professionalism. With his wife, Lisa, and his sponsor, Jake, he manages Right Path Men's House. He's completed his course work for his CAC and expects to complete his supervision by 2024. In his spare time, he loves to work on cars, ride dirt bikes and spend time with friends and family.

Coach, Sober Escort

Wayne grew up in Westport, Connecticut and currently resides on the Connecticut shoreline. He is a Certified Recovery Coach (CCAR) and case manager who brings personal recovery experience as well as professional training to his clients. Wayne’s journey into sobriety began in 1989. Through abstinence and support, Wayne remained clean and sober for a 17 year period before drifting away to “do it on his own.”  He describes his experience as having gotten back all that he had lost, and gaining all the trappings of success one could expect. After being disconnected from support, he began to think that, with a life like this, I can’t really have a substance use disorder. While sitting in a cafe in Rome, he decided to test his theory. That began a six month struggle to obtain sobriety and reconnect with the recovery community that was once so important. Since that nightmarish time 13 years ago, Wayne has maintained continuous abstinence and sobriety. Wayne’s personal experience with recovery, relapse, struggle and success gives him a deep understanding of the importance of support. 

 

Over the past eight years, Wayne has worked with individuals needing support as well as family members and loved ones of those with substance use disorders. His approach is to met the client where they are at and build from there, tailoring a program of recovery based on the client’s lifestyle and needs. In addition to Recovery Coaching and Case Management, Wayne offers Family Education and Support through a six part educational series that brings better understanding of a person with a substance use disorder as it relates to the family relationship. 

 

Wayne offers sober travel support, sober companion services, transportation to/from detox, rehabs, sober living and home. He offers his services throughout the United States, wherever and whenever he is needed.
