Recovery Coach Certification and Training Program

Nationally Certified Recovery Coach™ Training Levels I and II (Recovery Coaching Certification Programs)

Our comprehensive Professional Recovery Coach Certification and Training Program will teach you how to handle clients that are looking for help from drug addiction and alcohol addiction. A Recovery Coach’s function is to assist a client with Substance Use Disorder in finding the appropriate path to sobriety.  A Recovery Coach sets the parameters of the conversation, listens and contributes observations and questions, provides a roadmap for success, and assists the client as a team to achieve their desired goals. An action-based Recovery Coach accelerates the client’s progress by providing greater focus and awareness of choices, actions, and responsibility.

Recovery Coaching concentrates on meeting the client where they are now, where they want to be, and holding them accountable as a team to get there.  A professional coaching certification will enhance your marketability and allow you to offer your clients the best services possible. We are the global leader in addiction recovery coach training and certification and the only Recovery Coach Academy to offer two levels of recovery coach training.

What does a Recovery Coach do?

A Certified Professional Recovery Coach offers a form of strength-based support that includes intensive work within these areas: Accountability, Behavioral Change, Action Planning, Family Relationships, Coping Skills, Triggers, Purpose and Passion, Job and Career, Financial and more. The emphasis is on a client learning how to be productive and handle different aspects of life that may have been damaged by their addictions.  As a Recovery Coaching Candidate in our program, you will learn all the tools necessary to become a Recovery Coach and walk away with over 45 exercises from our #1 Best Selling workbook to facilitate change within a short window.

Who should be a Recovery Coach?

Anyone that is looking for a great career to assist others in finding their purpose and passion in life, getting and staying sober is an ideal coach candidate. Also an ideal career for someone that is an advocate or in recovery and wants to assist others.
