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.

TAA Brand New Course! May 6-7.  Help Your Recovery Clients Restore Health Through Nutrition.

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.
