Recovery Coach Professionals promote recovery by serving as a personal guide and mentor while helping to remove the barriers to recovery. The focus is always on the individual. The goal of the Recovery Coach Professional is to help individuals reach their full potential in recovery. To that end, the Recovery Coach Professional must maintain high standards of ethics and personal conduct.
Our Recovery Coaches walk beside recoverees on the road to recovery, embrace multiple pathways, and help to formulate a recovery wellness plan.
