Recovery Coaching Agreement
Thanks to research by White, David Loveland, Ernest Kurtz and Mark Saunders and the efforts funded by Faces and Voices of Recovery, the Fayette Companies, the Great Lakes Addiction Technology Transfer Center, the Health Chestnut Systems and many other universities, research on recovery coaching is progressing rapidly. The theory has been developed that recovery coaching reduces recidivism by providing ongoing support in developing healthy problem-solving and self-efficacy abilities (achieving rewarding goals) as well as connecting with the local recovery community for additional support. In other words, recovery coaching helps the client develop the cognitive abilities needed to consider options and consequences, make clear decisions, plan and take steps to achieve healthy living and recovery goals.  Some recovery coaches specialize in merging the characteristics of recovery coaching into a life coaching framework. This concept takes into account the often overlooked reality that those who recover early generally have unique difficulties in applying the realities of daily life in their new sober lifestyle. Such unique coaching styles are able to go far beyond the recreational component and properly introduce external influencers such as family relationships, employment, education and relationships. Recreational coaches do not offer primary treatment for addiction, do not diagnose, and are not associated with a method or means of healing. They support any positive change and help people returning from treatment to avoid reoffending, build community support for recovery, or work on non-addiction life goals, such as relationships, work or education. Recovery Coaching is action-oriented with a focus on improving current life and achieving future goals. Recovery coaching is currently offered by a few remarkable 12-storey treatment centres as well as several private „academies“ and „institutes“ with certifications, which are generally country and/or state-specific.
Be sure to check compliance with local laws. The Moniker „Recovery Coach“ is used for a variety of specific addictive rolls. The main difference exists between the professional or highly compensated recovery coach and the volunteer specialist or agency employee for peer recovery support. Among the roles of recovery assistance are: A sober companion or a sober coach works full-time with the client: full work days, nights, weekends or longer periods during which the coach is on the client`s side 24 hours a day. This long-term option can begin to relieve treatment and can become a coaching relationship that lasts several weeks, months or more.
