BECOME A CERTIFIED RECOVERY COACH

As is the case with many of the best addiction treatment professionals, a majority of recovery coaches are members of recovery programs themselves. They have a true understanding of abstinence and recovery, based on their own experience. To quote a phrase from the basic text of Narcotics Anonymous:“the therapeutic value of one addict helping another is without parallel.”

Developed by the Connecticut Community for Addiction Recovery (CCAR), the CCAR Recovery Coach Academy at COA is a week-long training opportunity designed for those interested in serving as a recovery coach. It is the first peer-based recovery coaching and training program designed for people interested in guiding individuals into and through long-term recovery from alcohol and/or drug addiction. The next scheduled training dates are:
