WHAT IS A RECOVERY COACH?
Recovery Coaching and Mentoring is a peer-based addiction and dependency recovery support service.
It is non-clinical, and Recovery Coaches are trained to engage others with initiating recovery, stabilization, and then throughout recovery maintenance.
Peer interventions have been shown to improve engagement and retention of people seeking service.
Recovery Coaches are effective. When people with lived experience walk side by side with their peers and advocate for them with counselors, therapists, nurses, doctors and the judicial system, the outcomes can be dramatically improved.
