Michael's Story

Michael Molthan, otherwise known as M2 the Rock, achieved great success as the nation's largest luxury home builder. However, Substance Use Disorder (SUD) led him down a destructive path. Twenty-seven arrests and a bout with homelessness later, it wasn’t until a nearly four-year jail sentence that he could finally see clearly. Michael’s time behind bars led to a profound spiritual awakening.

Substance Use Disorder (SUD) is not made up of just one rock bottom, but many. People struggling with Substance Use Disorder (SUD), like Michael, can use their lived experiences as a stepping stone to a greater life.

With storytelling sprinkled with Michael’s personal experiences and inspired by his magnetic, relatable personality, the motivational speaker now uses his rock bottoms to mentor and inspire others toward recovery.

In addition to motivational content, M2 the Rock has expanded its platform through the creation of a charity offering resources and services to those in need. M2 the Rock Services provides connections to Michael and other Certified Recovery Coaches as well as other resources so that those struggling with substance use disorders (SUD) are inspired to raise their own rock bottom.
