Healthy Acadia Recovery Coaching

By  | 

(WABI)- The Role of a Recovery Coach A Recovery Coach is more than any one thing. A good Recovery Coach is a leader, a mentor, a partner, a spiritual guide and a cheerleader - helping people seeking recovery build a life that is meaningful and enjoyable.

A Recovery Coach is a:
• motivator and cheerleader • mentor and guide • truth-teller • role model • problem solver • advocate • community organizer • lifestyle consultant • ally • confidant.

A Recovery Coach IS NOT a:
• sponsor • counselor • nurse or doctor • clergy person • lawyer • banker.

A Recovery Coach is anyone interested in promoting recovery by removing barriers and obstacles to recovery and by serving as a personal guide and mentor for people at any stage in their recovery journey.

Recovery Coaching is an innovative and effective form of peer-to-peer recovery support. Recovery coaches often have personal experience with the recovery process and serve as role models for others seeking recovery.

Recovery Coaches honor all pathways to recovery.
Recovery Coaching improves recovery success.

Recovery Messaging & Advocacy: The Importance of Carrying the Message Effectively.
This training will be a blend of our two most popular workshops, Recovery Messaging and Advocacy.
We have chosen to blend these topics together and present them because it will prepare attendees for the great work they will no doubt embark on as our recovery ready community leaders.

Recovery messaging is pertinent to sharing a message of hope and empowerment when speaking about people in recovery and advocating for them at the local, state, and federal levels. Person first language is essential.
Presenters: Kayla Kalel, Chapter Co-Lead of YPR - Brewer & Ashley Homstead, Chapter Co-Lead of YPR - Brewer.
