We cultivate masterful coaches.

 Our mission is to cultivate purpose in ourselves and others through possibility, education, equity and inclusivity.

We believe that all work starts with YOU. Hence HardBeauty YOUniversity. This is the creation of CEO Racquel Garcia and Coaching Director Tiffany Kuhwede. Peer recovery coaches walk side by side with individuals seeking recovery from substance use disorders. They help people to create their own recovery plans and develop their own recovery pathways. Through empathy and empowerment, the coach builds a unique relationship with an individual in or seeking recovery that is grounded in trust, and focused on providing the individual with tools, resources, and support to achieve their short, and long-term drug use and wellness goals. 

Peer recovery coaches work in a range of settings, including recovery community centers, drug courts, treatment centers, religious communities and more. and primary care settings. In addition to providing the range of support encompassed in the peer recovery coach role, they take an active role in outreach and engagement within these settings to educate communities around SUD to improve outcomes.

We are proud to be a Choices Peer Recovery Authorized Training provider. We have programming in both English and Spanish.
