Recovery Coaching: A HArm Reduction Pathway

This nationally recognized training provides practical knowledge and hands on experience in recovery coaching for people using harm reduction strategies.

WHY THIS TRAINING?
Tens of thousands of people are trained as peer recovery coaches. Principles of recovery coaching include: ‘Meet people where they are at’; ‘You are in recovery when you say you are’; and ‘There are many pathways to recovery’. Yet, harm reduction as a pathway to and of recovery remains widely misunderstood.

Abstinence-based pathways dominate, and recovery coaches may struggle with coaching a harm reduction pathway due to a lack of understanding about harm reduction; personal, institutional, and cultural bias; and a lack of exposure to people achieving recovery outcomes through harm-reduction-based means.
