Recovery Coaching For Success

Recovery Coaching 

(and yes, that includes "Sober")


I'm Zander Townend, and I've lived a roller-coaster life: from military school, to when I was a down-and-out, depressed and suicidal, living-on-the-street addict...


... and then in 1982, I started my journey of recovery. I took two years to get my first day truly clean. I have been able to claim and maintain a "Clean and Sober date" since June of 1984. That's when I started working on learning how to "Live Clean" - which is more than "just not using".


I've always had a passion for helping others. This led me to pursue training in many different techniques and methods (in addition to my "natural nerdiness").  I started working as an Alcohol and Addictions counsellor* in 1990.


Since then, I added study, practice and teaching  of Acupressure, Acupuncture, Oriental Medicine bodywork techniques, Meditation, Medical Qigong Therapy, Personality Type, and Conversational Intelligence.


My mission and purpose is to help anyone seeking freedom from the causes and impacts of addiction, for themselves or family members. 


There are many "roads to recovery". While I'm deeply associated and familiar with 12 Step programs, I'm also mindful that they aren't for everyone. Some people need different tools, different techniques, and different perspectives.  That's where the full scope of my Recovery Coaching and Training services come into play.


In 2015, I developed and started offering a unique training and coaching program for executives, leaders, and entrepreneurs. I designed it to help people develop and apply their Emotional Intelligence for greater success with business and personal relationships. I've adapted and refined that training and coaching course to the needs of the Recovery Community, especially for those in more advanced Recovery (folks with 1 year +). .. See the box below.

Is Recovery Coaching Right for You?

If you have been or you are:

  • Struggling with getting sober, or clean, or "making the program work"
  • An entrepreneur, executive, or leader who doesn't resonate with or have the time or inclination to attend 12 Step meetings
  • A family member who is caught in the heartbreak and confusion of loving someone with an addiction, and don't know what to do to help your loved one, or yourself
  • check
    Struggling with your cycle of relapse, despite having attended a treatment program (one or more times)
  • check
    Wanting to break free from addiction (in any form), and live a truly vibrant, vital, and healthier life

... Then I'm here to help.

Too often, we felt and thought that we've had to

do it all alone - that it wasn't safe or possible for us to

ask for, or receive, the kind of help we really needed. 


We lived inside loneliness,

hopelessness and despair...


Now, it's time to get the help we need.

There are a variety of ways
I work with clients, depending
on their needs and goals...


To help us know what the

best options are,
