Jaxx Johnson, Substance Use Staff Supervisor

Jaxx Johnson - Canvas Health Staff

Substance Use Staff Supervisor

Professional Philosophy

There is hope for every patient. They come to us from a position of hopelessness. We cannot “fix” anyone, we are simply tour guides. It is our responsibility to provide a safe environment where we can meet them where they are at and gently, but firmly guide them down the path of hope, healing, and recovery.
