Recovery Coaching

Turning Point has a trained recovery coaching team ready to help you identify and reach your personal goals. The Recovery Coach is a partner on your recovery journey. In most cases, coaches are peers in recovery. Peers are people with lived experiences.

WHY A RECOVERY COACH?

The primary role of a Recovery Coach is to create a partnership with folks new in recovery. A coach helps people create a vision for their recovery, identify and remove barriers to recovery, navigate through the human services system, access community resources, and connect with recovery services including treatment facilities, recovery centers, and mutual support groups.

HOW CAN COACHES HELP?

Recovery coaches provide peer-to-peer support to persons in recovery. They help resolve issues such as: housing, employment, job training, child care, meals, substance abuse program or mental illness help, and more.

Coaches help connect people to the many vital services offered in our community. By helping people remove barriers in these important life areas, their recovery becomes more secure.

The coach helps ensure that areas of potential crisis are addressed, making the possibility of relapse is less likely. Coaches help people envision their future and make it possible.

WHY IS A VISION IMPORTANT FOR RECOVERY?

The longer you’re in recovery, the more crucial it becomes for you to focus on goals and personal growth. People who stop growing or actively pursuing new growth experiences will eventually slide back into old patterns and run the risk of relapse. This problem tends to arise after people have been in recovery for a couple of years.

The idea of a recovery coach becomes very useful in maintaining long-term recovery.

A recovery coach is trained specifically to encourage people in personal growth areas. If you are working with a recovery coach, always setting new goals, and constantly striving to grow, then you are more likely to enjoy a very strong recovery.

How Does a Recovery Coach Help?

A recovery coach will help you define your goals in life and then help you to work toward those goals. A coach asks questions and listens. You lead the way on this journey; you create the vision of what your recovery will look like. The coach supports your choices and helps you make your vision a reality.

The recovery coach WILL:

  • Do just what other coaches do, but serve those who are in recovery from addiction, are seeking recovery, or have family members who are dealing with active addiction or recovery.

  • Help the recovering person to explore his or her wants, needs, values, and choices.

  • Help explore options.

  • Help gain clarity and move into action.

  • Provide encouragement and reminders of accomplishments and progress made. 

The recovery coach WILL NOT:

  • Diagnose any addiction.

  • Treat addiction per se.

  • Dictate what someone’s recovery will look like.

  • Tell the recovering person what to do or how to do it.

What if you already have a sponsor or a counselor?

 A counselor provides clinical support based on formal education; a 12-step sponsor provides recovery support and guides you through the steps based on his or her own experience; a recovery coach helps you define and achieve goals you choose and provides support based on experience and training. Recovery coaching is goal-oriented, based on your own vision.
