Patrick Doyle


Through his program Family Addiction Coaching, Patrick Doyle provides coaching services to help families recover from addiction. While most coaches work with the person with addiction, Patrick has seen family involvement improve treatment outcomes for patients.

Supporting families with addiction for more than thirty years, Patrick earned a Master of Social Work degree from Boston College, and is licensed as a Clinical Social Worker. Patrick has worked in a full range of healthcare settings including Emergency Medicine, Acute Medical Dual Diagnosis, and Intensive Outpatient Programs for addiction. Patrick served for several years as Substance Use Consultant for The Boston Red Sox organization, helping them win their World Series title in 2004.

With drug overdoses increasing over recent years, Patrick has dedicated himself to using science-based information to help families gain health and recovery. He has also found a love for the podcasting medium and has created the Family Addiction Coaching Podcast, available at and all major outlets.
