What is Recovery Coaching?
Recovery coaching is a multifaceted model of care designed to be tailored to the diverse needs of each family. The relationship with coach and client often improves outcomes by empowering the addicted individual and the family to remain in recovery and to adhere to the continuing care plan provided by the treatment center. Coaching will improve motivation and support in healthy lifestyle changes.
