What is a Recovery Coach?
A recovery coach is a person who helps remove personal and environmental obstacles to recovery, links the newly recovering person to the recovery community, and serves as a personal guide and mentor in the management of personal and family recovery. Such supports are generated by mobilizing volunteer resources within the recovery community or provided by the recovery coach where such natural support networks are lacking.
Recovery coaches follow these core values when working in the recovery community:
1. All individuals are unique and have special needs, goals, health attitudes and behaviors and expectations for recovery.
2. Persons in recovery share similarities; however, management of their own lives and mastery of their own futures will require different pathways at times.
3. All persons should be offered equal access to recovery and have the opportunity to participate in their recovery process.
