FREEDOM from addiction IS POSSIBLE 

Are you looking for new tools to integrate into your current recovery path?

Are you seeking support around your unique needs and desires for lasting freedom from addiction?

Working with someone who will meet you where you are can be incredibly helpful. 

Welcome! I'm glad you're here. My name is David Wichman, and I am an author, speaker, CalMHSA Certified Peer Support Specialist & Certified Conscious Recovery™ coach. 

In the  beginning of my recovery journey, I engaged in the 12-step program and still attend a variety of recovery meetings. I appreciate the recovery process from a broad perspective. I also recognize there are multiple paths to freedom from addiction. My preferred approach to recovery right now leans heavily toward paths that emphasize the importance of living beyond the shame and stigma associated with mental health and substance use experiences. 

I believe in meeting people from where they are today, not where I hope they will be in the future. That said I also love helping identify and map out a trajectory that brings about a sense of purpose. Earning my Conscious Recovery coaching certification has deepened my understanding and enhanced my ability to foster meaningful relationships with those I work with. I am especially here to help connect and provide resources in an effort to  guide and connect those seeking a judgement free advocate by their side. 

I am trained in CPR AED & NARCAN 

I am also the proud author of the award-winning book "Every Grain of Sand," where I detail my personal journey to healing and moving beyond the belief in my brokenness. My hope is by  leveraging my perspective and insights, I can assist those struggling with substance use to reclaim their power. I look forward to joining you on your journey.

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”Rumi

"Even years into my recovery. I believed there was something broken within me that needed constant fixing. When I discovered the Conscious Recovery Method™, I realized that this emptiness was an invitation, not a flaw. I stopped trying to fix something that wasn't broken and focused on unlearning old ideas that held me back. This shift allowed me to witness new layers in my recovery experience, not just for myself, but also for those I worked with."
