‘For anyone in the Recovery field, the U-ACT training is an innovative new approach to healing people’s lives that is unlike any other training. Utilising a dynamic approach to learning that blends both process and content, the U-ACT training offers a once-in-a-lifetime experience that has been referred to as “pure Recovery genius”. If you’re ready to learn, be challenged, and reap valuable rewards for life, the U-ACT training is a must for anyone in the Recovery field.’

The U-ACT Recovery Coaching course is for those interested in becoming actively involved in serving as a Recovery coach. A U-ACT Recovery Coach is anyone interested in promoting recovery by removing barriers and obstacles to recovery, and serving as a personal guide and mentor for people seeking recovery or who are already in recovery. The training will provide participants a comprehensive overview of the purpose, tasks, and various roles played by a Recovery coach. It will provide participants tools and resources that are useful in providing recovery support services and it emphasizes the skills required to link clients to needed supports within the community. These supports would be those that promote recovery.
