The angels + devils are in the details of the Before, During & After magic moments. You'll learn how to spark and ignite the group dynamic from beginning to end and in the in-between space between meetings.
Mike believes sugar addiction is very real and not to be taken lightly. As a person in long-term recovery from substance use disorder for over thirty-six years, he took a very keen interest in what sugar was doing to him and his friends in early recovery.
After much research and experimentation, he quit sugar with the help of amazing mentors. He then raised two children sugar-free from the womb to six years old and, as they grew, he rewrote the rules for sugar and kids in childhood.
He takes very seriously his stewardship of SugarAddiction.com and QuitSugarSummit.com and aims to provide information and community for anyone wanting to curb or quit sugar.
His book “The Last Resort Sugar Detox” has been read by hundreds of thousands of people and his online 30-Day Sugar Freedom Challenge has been successfully completed by thousands.

In our 1st Module, you'll practice embodying current industry best practices, definitions of Peer Recovery for Addiction using active, engaged + sticky learning strategies.
Before you can be really great at Active Listening, you have to understand the roadblocks and off-ramps that divert your attention, create blind spots or prevent you from being anything less than 'other directed'.
This Module is chock-a-block full of self-discovery, self assessment and know-thyself exercises.
In this Module, you'll master the principles + protocols of Sugar Addiction's 30-Day Challenge and how they fit into Sugar Peer Recovery Meetings.
You'll learn to incorporate the 30-Day Sugar Detox Model with effective Peer Recovery facilitation practices centered around dancing with Values + Differences and disengaging Stigma + Labels in groups.
You'll come away with a clear understanding of how the Stages of Change* and the Stages of Recovery play together and separately in the course of harmful use reduction and abstinence for those with substances use disorder(s).
*(Transtheoretical Model of Behavior Change)
