Our Coaches meet you right where you are in the recovery process, to encourage, motivate, and assist you in developing recovery skills. A coach walks along side you as you navigate early recovery and assists you in making clear the path to long term recovery. As a person starts to make incremental character-building-wins, hope and purpose return to life and one is then on a secure footing of true recovery with a firm understanding and value of togetherness. When life presents its inevitable challenges we are then properly equipped to meet them head on without fear of relapse. As you learn new communication skills you are then equipped to take responsibility for the relationships in your life. As a result, families, loved ones, co-workers and friends become beneficiaries of Recovery Coaching as well.
The coach provides their expertise, guidance, skills, and own success in recovery to help define and support the steps defined in plans of action. This dynamic between client and coach is what sows the seeds to enact powerful change that leads to successful day-to-day living. Our coaches ask the tough questions and listen carefully to the answers; helping to reflect back with clarity the client’s own intentions for themselves and their lives.
Based on the needs of the client, the plans can look different. As you learn to navigate new territory and some of the same , you will begin to feel empowered, perhaps for the first time. One day you and your Coach may be working on a plan of action to work on emotional wellness, financial wellness, spiritual wellness, etc. And on another day you may be rock climbing, doing yoga, or in a meeting. Sometimes situations require a sober companion or sober escort, in which case a coach will travel with a client. Remember we meet you where you are, and assist you in your individual needs and circumstances.
A Recovery Coach is not a clinician of any kind. However, at times it is the case that a person would have a support team of specialists involved where a coach could have communication with other members of that team; given it is the desire of the client and there are ROI agreements in place.
