Recovery Coaching

Recovery Coaching

Recovery coaching is a form of strength-based support for persons with substance abuse disorders. The coach empowers the client to create and maintain a plan for success using motivational interviewing, decisional balance exercises, and mindfulness techniques.

Everybody could use some support, whether it’s early recovery, returning from a relapse, or just needing some motivation to invigorate your recovery. From executives to adolescents, everyone can benefit from knowledgeable, caring, and compassionate help.

Recovery coaches assist with a solid plan for recovery success.

  • Helping maintain the gains achieved in treatment.
  • Solidify and integrate new coping skills and lifestyle behaviors.
  • Identify and address triggers and vulnerabilities to create the most supportive recovery environment.
  • Help clients maintain motivation to prevent vulnerability to relapse.

When clients encounter distress, coaches help them to identify:

  • The cause of the distress in the present moment.
  • What tools they have to deal with that distress.
  • A game plan for using those tools to address the situation.
  • Potential relapse traps and encourages alternative paths.
