Brett Johnson


Addiction has been part of Brett Johnson’s life since birth. He was raised in chaos, neglect, violence and Love. For as long as he can remember he didn’t want to live in his own skin and tried to escape reality with any form possible. Brett tried every single external form of gratification known to man, with nothing working until his journey into recovery started in 2006.

Today he experiences a beautiful life, with an amazing son and partner. He loves walking alongside individuals as a guide in the beginning of their recovery journey, serving as a certified coach, interventionist, sponsor, and friend. Brett loves watching the light of hope shine through the dark shadows that addiction brings into our lives.

Brianna moved to Nanaimo for its recovery community after a stay in one of the local treatment centres. She is grateful to have over 5 years substance free and has spent the last 3 years working in some of Canada’s top addiction treatment facilities.

Brianna believes that recovery is a gift worth fighting for and emphasizes the importance of self-compassion, connection and relapse prevention strategies for a successful journey through early recovery.
