CCAR Recovery Coaches offer recovery support and help with obtaining community-based services and resources, while providing hope and positive role modeling. Coaches also work with recoverees to develop their own individual recovery plans.
CCAR Recovery Coaches promote recovery; remove barriers; build recovery capital; connect recoverees with recovery support services; and encourage hope, optimism and healthy living.
Recovery coaching is for people both in recovery from addiction themselves or for people (friends or family members) who have been affected by another’s addiction.
Recovery coaches are not therapists, counsellors, clinicians, clergy or 12 step sponsors. They occupy a very unique and distinct lane on the recovery highway.
Recovery coaching in the three CCAR Recovery Community Centers is provided by CCAR trained recovery coaches, free of charge. Anyone who is seeking to initiate or sustain their recovery is welcome. At CCAR, you are in recovery if you say you are.
