Recovery Coaches play an important role in the recovery process by creating connections with those they serve in deeply meaningful way. Through these connections, which may include the sharing of personal stories and elements of their own recovery journey, Coaches mentor and inspire those looking for, or are in recovery, with a great deal of success. With such responsibility comes the need for clear boundaries – both personally and professionally. This 16-hour training focuses of the ethical challenges Recovery Coaches face while providing a framework for creating good boundaries that allow for the same level of connection without causing harm.
For some, spirituality plays a large part of their Recovery. This two-day program helps Recovery Coaches understand spirituality and how they might support a recoveree who includes spirituality in their own Recovery process. As spirituality is deeply personal, exploring individual personal beliefs and values prepares Recovery Coaches so they speak about spirituality in a way that embraces and accepts all beliefs. Recovery Coaches who engage in this work can better support spirituality as part of the Recovery Wellness Plan of the recoveree.
Based on our flagship training, the CCAR Recovery Coach Academy©, this curriculum delivers a more basic, introductory version of Recovery Coaching for those who want a general understanding of the recovery process. By focusing on the foundational principles of Recovery Coaching, the individual can better support and embrace loved ones and colleagues as well as the millions of people living in recovery in our communities. Much like the journey of Recovery, this training provides an emotionally rich experience, combined with skills and techniques for real life application.
Recovery Coaching continues to gain momentum throughout the country, and with good reason. Recovery Coaches can, and do, connect people to long term and sustained recovery. Because of this, more and more, coaches are utilized in a variety of settings, including doctors offices, police stations, drug courts, treatment centers, and most notably Emergency Departments. The need for skilled coaches who can easily adapt and work in a fast-paced ED setting is growing exponentially. As providers of the CT ED Recovery Coaches program, we have learned a great deal about the different training needs of those who choose to serve in this unique role.
As the demand for Recovery Coaches grows and their profound impact in supporting Recovery embraced, organizations search for candidates that can easily assimilate and demonstrate a high level of professionalism. This two-day curriculum provides an overview of the professional characteristics needed for success, while exploring the art and science of recovery coaching needed at such settings, including hospitals, treatment programs, court systems, and more.
Recovery Coaches serve in a wide variety of settings and as such, the types of supervision for these coaches may also differ. In many cases, we see Peer Supervision models used as an attempt at Supervision which does not truly align with the Recovery Coaching model. CCAR created and utilizes a model for oversight that resonates most with the role of the coach – aptly named, Coachervision. Based on the concept of “Coaching Coaches”, this workshop provides participants with an understanding of supporting coaches in the wide variety of roles they play on a day to day basis, while developing their long-term success.
The demographic of persons seeking Recovery from an addiction trends younger and younger. Coaches who speak the language of a younger generation greatly impact sustained long-term Recovery. The CCAR Recovery Coach Academy© for Young Adults utilizes a blend of online and live content providing participants with the necessary knowledge and skills that support the unique needs of young adults in recovery. Much like the journey of Recovery, this training offers a transformational experience.
