A Recovery Coach is a trained peer who guides and supports a person in the recovery process and helps prevent relapse. The goal of a Recovery coach is to be actively involved in helping the participant explore their relationship with substance use and establish a foundation of living life without the need for addiction.
Coaches act as a combination counselor, sponsor, friend and mentor and work collaboratively with participants to develop goals, locate resources and learn the skills necessary to live a sober and productive life. Coaches can engage with participants at any stage of the recovery process . Recovery coaching is based on the principle of “meeting the participant where they are” and can be an effective tool for change no matter where that may be.
Recovery coaching services are voluntary and are best applied when the person seeking support is actively engaged and interested in recovery. Recovery coaches cannot mandate participation and services are not therapeutic or clinical in nature.
Addiction tears families apart. It erodes trust, ruins relationships and drives a wedge between people who love each other. Even the most well-intentioned and intelligent family members can become swept up in patterns of enabling and conflict.
And on top of it all, family members feel obligated to somehow convince their loved one to go to rehabilitation – even though this goal seems impossible. So many families either put off doing an intervention or try to do it themselves, often with disappointing results.
Thankfully, families don’t have to host interventions alone. They can call in a trained professional to help ensure success and make the process easier.
