Michael V. Pantalon
Like you, Dr. Pantalon, addiction and motivation expert, is frustrated with how difficult it is to find good addiction treatment. In fact, only 1 out of every 10 people is in any formal addiction treatment and fewer still are in treatments scientifically shown to be effective (i.e., evidence-based). Worse yet, addicted individuals and their loved ones are confused about who can educate them about the various treatment options available and motivate them to make a change. Given this, Dr. Pantalon’s mission is addiction HELP FOR ALL through professional recovery coaching and recovery coach training, both of which are offered at his Center for Progressive Recovery, LLC, where he is a co-founder. Additionally, Dr. Pantalon is a clinical psychologist and Senior Research Scientist at the Yale School of Medicine, where he has been developing and studying cutting-edge treatments for alcohol, cocaine, opiate, and tobacco use disorders, as well as training hundreds of clinicians and coaches in evidence-based addiction treatment, since 1997.
