Mathew McMillan

Facilitator - Addiction 101

I grew up in the Hawkes Bay but live in Nelson with my wife and our three boys.  I have a Social Work and Health Science background and have worked in a variety of settings including Alcohol and Drug Outpatient and Inpatient Services.  I am now self-employed and operate a small Addiction Service with the help of two counselors.  My focus is problem gambling and gaming, though I also provide clinical supervision and teach part-time. I was motivated into this work for a number of reasons and remain passionate about seeing effective support for those facing addiction issues and mental distress.
