If you have heard the term “Recovery Coach” and have wondered what they do and how they can be beneficial in your own recovery, you may find your answers below.

“A Recovery Coach is a personal guide who assists in removing barriers and obstacles in one’s recovery.” Recovery Coaches establish an ongoing mentoring relationship that helps those who are in recovery or who are considering recovery from substance use disorders to produce extraordinary results in their lives, careers, businesses, communities, or organizations. This form of guidance is not conducted by therapists or psychologists. Some people may find this practice therapeutic, but it does not take the form of therapy or psychotherapy.
