Recovery Coaching & Treatment Services

Recovery Coaching:

I specialize in recovery coaching and mentorship services in the San Luis Obispo region, and I am available for online sessions if you are located outside of the area. My private counseling sessions cater to individuals at any stage of their recovery journey. I offer support to those who suspect they may have an issue with drugs and alcohol, require coaching to create a recovery plan, or would like additional guidance in their recovery after completing a treatment program. I work with adults, teens, and family members to provide personalized support.

My approach to counseling and coaching is not limited to traditional sessions. I incorporate hands-on methods such as creative coping skills, outdoor activities (such as surfing, walking, and going to the gym), budgeting, time management, shopping for healthy foods, cooking, attending community support groups, meeting for coffee or lunch to discuss your week, and other non-traditional approaches to support your recovery journey.

Treatment Services Guidance:

Searching for addiction, alcoholism, and mental health treatment services for yourself or a loved one can be a daunting task, especially with the multitude of options available online. As a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor in California, I can offer my expertise to help guide you through this process.

With over a decade of experience in the SUD and mental health treatment field in Orange County, CA, I am well equipped to provide recovery coaching, mentorship, treatment education, and referrals to those seeking help. I am based on the Central Coast, and I can assist you in navigating the complex world of addiction and mental health treatment.

You may come across various terms during your online search such as interventions, outpatient, detox, residential, co-occurring disorder treatment, sober living, transitional living, individual therapy, in-network/out-of-network, wrap-around services, M.A.T., and more. It can be overwhelming and confusing, and you may not be sure who to trust or which services are best for your loved one’s circumstances. I am here to help you through this process and provide coaching to help you make informed decisions about which services may be best suited for your loved one’s needs.

Please call (949) 464-7123 for a free 30 min. consultation. I do not offer licensed psychotherapy, psychiatric care, medical services, nor am I a treatment center. If you are in need of that I can help facilitate appropriate referrals that meet that level of necessity.

About Me:

Hello, my name is James Shoffeitt, and I am a certified alcohol and drug counselor. I have been working in the addiction and mental health recovery field since 2011. I graduated from the human services – drug & alcohol studies program at Saddleback College in Mission Viejo, CA in 2012. I have been clean and sober since 2008, and I found my way into recovery through 12 step programs when I was 18 years old.

Growing up in Southern California, I spent much of my life skateboarding, surfing, and camping. I am a father and a small business owner with a passion for helping others and engaging with people from all walks of life. I have had the opportunity to work at some premier rehabilitation programs in Orange County, California, where I developed my skills as a certified clinician working with adults, teens, and families.

While I am a believer in 12 step programs, I understand that it may not be the right fit for everyone. Therefore, I maintain an open-minded approach when working with others. I am currently based in the San Luis Obispo region, but I am available to connect with you over the phone or Zoom from anywhere. I look forward to connecting with you and assisting you on your journey.
