FAMILY RECOVERY COACH TRAINING

Nationally Certified Family Recovery Coaching (NCFRC)

Family Recovery Coach TrainingOur program in Family Recovery Coaching is comprehensive and will teach you, the professional coach, to be able to work with and assist the family during their difficult times.  As much as an addict needs a coach, so does the family, and there are currently no programs available to teach you, the professional, how to deal with the family dynamics.  Families of an addict are often confused themselves about addiction and where to turn with some of the issues that are going on within the family dynamic system. As a Therapist or Recovery Coach, you are trained to handle the addict but often the family is left alone to deal with their issues without help. They become abandoned once the loved one enters treatment or even left to coach themselves on what to do if the loved one refuses treatment. We are proud to offer you Nationally Certified Family Coach Training. Increase your resume and make yourself more marketable to treatment centers by learning Family Recovery Coaching.

Family Coaches deal with families that are confused and not sure what to do while their loved one is in treatment or even during the period where they are actively using. Often the family has been enabling the addict so long that when the addict goes into to treatment they feel lost and confused. Sometimes they even expect the addict to come home after 28 days or so ‘cured’ and ‘fixed’. As Professionals, we know that is not the case, but the family does not. There is a great need for Professional Family Coaches to pick up the pieces before, during and after their loved one gets help.

Up until now the best we were able to recommend to the family was to go to Al-anon or ‘family day’ at the drug and alcohol treatment facility. Now, The Addictions Academy can offer so much more, including a Certification in Family Recovery Coaching. As a Family Recovery Coach, you will be able to assist the families of the addicts that so desperately need assistance with a troubled loved one.

What you will learn in our Family Recovery Coaching Training:

  • The dynamics of the family system.
  • Family roles and Claudia Black’s work within the family system.
  • Defense Mechanisms of the family unit.
  • Steps to solidify the family unit.
  • Preparation for treatment of the addict or return from treatment.
  • How to set boundaries and consequences with the loved one.
  • Education of addiction and addictive behaviors with in the family system.
  • Spotting hidden blame, anger and resentments and working through those.
  • Pharmacology, types of drugs both legal and street will be discussed.
  • Qualifying the family as a client.

NATIONALLY CERTIFIED NUTRITIONAL RECOVERY COACHING (NCNRC)

In our Nationally Certified Nutritional Recovery Coaching course, we will address the importance of re-building a relationship with wholesome foods, and the necessity of good nutrition throughout addiction recovery.

More often than not, active addicts deplete their bodies of all good nutrition by either making poor food choices or not eating at all. Pop Tarts and Hot Pockets become the food of choice in addiction. Fast, fatty, sugary foods are often eaten because they’re easy and cheap. Money is reserved for the alcohol or the drugs and food is secondary, if the addict chooses to even eat. Years of drug and alcohol abuse will wreak havoc on the body. In this course, we will teach you how to eat properly, provide your body with the correct nutrients and heal your body from the inside out. Therapy and talk coaching are only part of the process. This course will identify key basic nutrition elements that will be the building blocks to proper eating.

Addiction creates chemical changes that affect you both physically and emotionally. From muscle breakdown and fatigue to anger and even depression, poor nutrition affects every facet of the mind and body. We will teach you the key nutrients that the body needs to become balanced and return to homeostasis.

It is important to understand that not all foods are created equal and neither are calories. We will address not only the most essential wholesome foods to include in your diet, but also the foods and ingredients that should never be a part of a nutritional eating plan.

With our Certified Nutritional Recovery Coach training program you will be equipped to help your recovery client in healing their body and restoring health, through nutrition. Pair our Nationally Certified Nutritional Recovery Coach class with our Nationally Certified Fitness in Recovery class for the total health and wellness experience to help your clients gain the most of their recovery.

Sometimes it is actually asking for the rate they deserve that is the issue. We cover it all in this course. From what to stay to potential customers and clients to closing the deal, we can help.

The marketing of your new company is paramount. We cover website, social media presence, guerilla marketing, contracts, B2B marketing and even word of mouth referrals.

Debbie Perkins is a certified International Master Addictions Coach with an AA in Science, an AAS in Supervision and Management and is one credit shy of a Bachelor’s in Supervision and Management. She is heavily involved in Addiction Recovery, running the organization No More Heroin (http://www.nomoreheroin.org), while at the same time owning and running Sober Houses for Women.  Debbie herself is a recovering addict with almost 8 years sober, but Debbie’s road to recovery has not been easy.

Debbie was molested at the tender age of 6 years old and her abuser gave her alcohol in addition to the sexual abuse he forced on her.  By 10 years old Debbie was a full-blown addict. While she was struggling with her addiction, she lost each of her parents to suicide.  She was raped at 34 years old, while in full-blown addiction and was forced to give birth to her daughter while handcuffed to a bed.

At that time, addiction was not recognized as an illness and so Debbie found herself, like many addicts at the time, in jail and prison. Because she was still keeping her early abuse secret and was unwilling to be honest about her past, she found herself in and out of rehabs and jail, never staying sober for more than 6 months at a time.

Her recovery came when she was sentenced with 2 years of house arrest, daily 12 step support meetings and then 3 years of probation.  During those 5 years she learned to forgive those who had hurt her and learned how to practice asking forgiveness of those who she had hurt during her active addiction.

Debbie learned how to do all this through a 12 step program and is now able to be at peace with her past, remain sober and share her wisdom, strength and hope with others who are still in the grip of their active addiction.  She is also able to recognize that her final judicial accountability was what saved her from a continuous life of addiction, pain, legal troubles and quite likely death from overdose.

Debbie took steps to learn about the field of addiction and recovery and gained national certification in several areas of addiction as well as having her Master Addictions Coaching Certification.  She uses her knowledge and experience in her Transitional Houses to help her clients learn how to become whole, productive members of society while remaining healthy.

While her journey to sobriety and self-discovery has not been easy, she has learned how to have a life full of dignity, honor and support for fellow addicts who are struggling in the grip of this terrible disease. Debbie uses her experience, strength, hope and knowledge to help others fight and beat their own disease and become healthy productive members of society.
