Michel Odufré: co-creator Triora Model
A happy and enthusiastic child, Michel started smoking cannabis with friends. From there, things went from bad to worse. He even broke into his parents’ house to steal to pay for his drug habit, justifying to himself that he was still a nice guy because he chose not to steal the car.
After being admitted to a clinic, life started to take a turn for the better and he gained insight into who he was and wanted to be. Michel found his place in the world helping others to gain similar insights in overcoming addiction. Co-creator of the Triora Model, today Michel is a director at Triora in the Netherlands. He has been happily married for 30 years and has two daughters and two grandchildren.
"I am very proud that the methodology that we developed has the highest score of abstinence in the whole world… It is great that now we are even exporting the method abroad because there too there is a demand by a lot of people with addiction problems.”
