John Moir is a fully licensed master’s level social worker and certified addictions counselor with more than 30 years’ experience in the substance abuse and mental health field.
His specialty is working with patients who have both a substance use disorder and a psychiatric disorder (co-occurring disorders). John has presented at many conferences and universities on the topic of clinical practice with individuals who have co-occurring disorders. He is trained in several evidence-based clinical practices, including CBT, DBT and trauma care. John is sensitive to the individual needs of clients and the effects of systemic oppression on marginalized populations including the LGBTQ population and how this affects an individual’s ability to recover.
I believe that patients don’t care how much I know until they know how much I care.
John has conducted research on the importance of engaging individuals in treatment, and program development for transition age youth. He continues to explore ways to improve systems of care throughout the state of Michigan.
