A recovery coach is a life coach who has expertise in the area of recovery and addiction. A recovery coach can be looked at as a strong bridge to on-going recovery. Coaching can be used for those who have suffered from addiction/alcoholism or for the family members of those that have suffered.
Addiction is an incurable mental illness. The good news is that addiction can be arrested with on-going recovery. There is no temporary fix to addiction. Because recovery is an on-going process, a recovery coach should have many years of experience with their personal recovery. Recovery coaches with experience have seen all the patterns and behaviors. They understand the empowering beliefs necessary to set the recovering addict up to win. Recovery coaching is not therapy or sponsorship. Coaching will focus on the present so the person in recovery can create a compelling future.
