The Recovery Coach Academy (RCA) is a 5-day training designed for those interested in becoming Re-covery Coaches and/or for learning the principles and philosophies of Recovery Coaching. The training will provide a comprehensive overview of the purpose, tasks, and roles of Recovery Coaches.
Are trained to use their lived experience in support of another’s journey in recovery. Therefore, personal disclosure may be a part of the coaching relationship.
Are often expected to assist the people they are coaching, called “recoverees,” as they navigate systems, attend events, or explore the recovery community.
Must be flexible with their hours and meet with their recoverees when and where they are needed.
Should not follow one specific theoretical framework or one specific ideology of recovery. There are multi-ple paths to recovery and the coach must help the recoveree remove barriers, in whatever ways make the most sense to the recoveree.
All Recovery Coaches must be supervised by someone who has been trained as a Recovery Coach Trainer and has a clear understanding of the Recovery Coach Philosophy.
Recovery Coaching is NOT a clinical service. Rather, it is a new and exciting role in the field of substance use disorders. A Recovery Coach promotes recovery by removing barriers and obstacles to recov-ery and serving as a personal guide and mentor for people seeking or already in recovery.
