RECOVERY COACH ACADEMY

As the coordinating body for Recovery Coach and Peer Advocate training throughout New York State, FOR-NY endorses qualified trainers to facility the 30-hour Recovery Coach Academy (RCA) and 16-hour Ethics for Peer Professionals.

These trainings are designed for individuals involved in the recovery initiation of others and/or in sustained recovery themselves and want to become a guide and mentor for others seeking, or already living in, recovery.

The training reflects the Connecticut Community for Addiction Recovery (CCAR) model.

  • Describe the “Recovery Coach” role and functions
  • List the components, core values and guiding principles of recovery
  • Build skills to enhance relationships
  • Explore many dimensions of recovery and recovery coaching
