Michelle Avina

Michelle’s childhood was filled with trauma, abuse, neglect, alcohol, and drug addicted parents. She began abusing drugs and alcohol at the early age of 12 years old, struggling into her adult years to live a life of recovery with successes and downfalls.

Full recovery started after Michelle asked herself honestly if she wanted to live or die. Recognizing at that moment her life would end without significant change, she chose to live. She now embraces each day with honesty, gratitude, compassion, and the willingness to continue to learn and grow in recovery.

As a peer recovery coach, Michelle can help others by walking alongside them with support and love.

The ability to live life on life’s terms one day at a time is a gift; we NEVER have to do it alone!”
