ASK THE EXPERT- Today’s Topic: Recovery & Sober Coaching vs. Therapy

Question: “What exactly is Recovery Coaching or Sober Coaching and how is that different from therapy?” John S. Austin Texas

Answer:  “Recovery Coaching or Sober Coaching is different from therapy because in coaching we move forward and in therapy we move backwards with the clients.  In Recovery Coaching we focus on the now behaviors and discuss what results are wanted now and in the future.  We then discuss the blocks and obstacles that get in the way of those goals.  Together we formulate a plan that will assist the clients in moving forward and meeting those goals. With therapy, it can take years, Recovery Coaching takes weeks to months.  I actually look forward to when my clients fire me because they are doing so well. ”
