Recovery coaching is a person-centered, strengths-based system that upholds the notion that there can be several paths to recovery.

Recovery coaching is highly interactive in that the client is encouraged to actively participate in their own recovery. It is an ongoing professional (non-clinical) relationship that empowers individuals who are in or who are considering recovery from addiction.

It is based on the belief that people are, by their very nature, creative, resourceful and whole.

Recovery Coaches affirm that there is health and wellness in each of their clients. Recovery Coaches do not promote or endorse any single or particular way of achieving or maintaining sobriety, abstinence, serenity, or of reducing suffering from addiction.

Their focus is on coaching their clients to create and sustain great and meaningful lives. With guidance and support, clients can be helped to develop doable strategies that build recovery capital, and continue on toward a sustained recovery.

The Purpose of this group is to explore resources, networks, and create a personal recovery plan which will be shared with group members in order to get positive feedback and support from the collective to help clarify and sharpen your recovery plan.

This group is for those who are in recovery and desire a more one to one hands on approach in customizing their recovery plan or

persons who don’t have a recovery plan and wish to explore how to put together a recovery plan.

This group is open for individuals who are committed to their own personal recovery and growth.

There will be a private online community available for ongoing support during and after the six weeks session.

The coaching sessions will last six weeks
