Recovery Coach Academy

Recovery Coaches aren’t sponsors or addiction counselors.
Instead, they’re people who have lived experience with recovery who provide non-clinical recovery support to their peers.

Recovery Coaches remove barriers to recovery.

Recovery Coaches connect peers to recovery resources that target their strengths and interests.

Recovery Coaches provide emotional support.
