Recovery is more than simply abstaining from drugs, alcohol and other compulsive behaviors.
Recovery is about transformation: Achieving balance, confidence, accessing inner wisdom, taking time, and gaining enthusiasm, motivation, focus and purpose. Each recovery coaching package is tailored to meet your needs and support you in your recovery.
What is Recovery Coaching?
Recovery Coaches identify problem areas and assist in creating the “shift” necessary for transformation.
Recovery Coaches act as a liaison between all treatment providers and offer a voice in the collaborative effort. Recovery Coaches are in contact with a person’s psychologist, psychiatrist and treatment group in order to improve the continuity of care.
Family involvement can bolster a person’s success in recovery and can help to establish healthy boundaries and to improve communication patterns among key figures in the person’s life. When possible, family recovery coaching may be a suitable model to move the whole family from addiction to recovery.
Goals of Recovery Coaching:
- Promote abstinence and prevent relapse
- Advise, screen, and support continuing care recommendations
- Coordination and case management with all continuing care providers
- Re-integration planning
- Assist in twelve-step meetings engagement
- Increase and reinforce involvement in positive behaviors
- Teach effective communication techniques
- Help the family to heal and improve communication patterns
What is entailed?
A recovery coach provides access to recovery resources, creates individual accountability, assists with re-integration and teaches healthy boundary setting. A recovery coach will serve as an advocate for your recovery, while helping to prevent relapse.
Recovery Coaches don’t diagnose and don’t do treatment, but through a thorough evaluation, we can help identify problem areas and assist in creating the “shift” necessary for transformation.
Another key aspect of recovery coaching is professional collaboration. In some cases, the recovery coach can act as a liaison between all treatment providers and be another voice in the collaborative effort. It is not uncommon for a coach to be in contact with a person’s psychologist, psychiatrist and treatment group in order to improve the continuity of care. Furthermore, family involvement can bolster a person’s success in recovery. When possible, we involve the family to help establish healthy boundaries and improve communication patterns among key figures in the person’s life.
