Substance Abuse and Addiction Recovery Coaching Group Facilitation Training
Addiction Recovery Coaching is very different to other treatment programmes. It’s more personal and is aimed at tapping into the client’s strength. Programmes and treatment interventions are tailored to tap into the client’s strengths and encourage accountability and personal responsibility. Our experience shows us that if our clients are motivated by their own choices and decisions that the therapeutic relationship is not only more beneficial, but results in long-term recovery and personal transformation.
Recovery Coaching has been created using the foundations of the tried and tested Minnesota Model of addiction treatment and the 12 Step programme, combined with executive coaching and leadership tools. By combining Addiction Recovery Coaching with traditional 12 Step treatment, the outcome of the treatment is has proved to be more sustainable and beneficial to our clients and the process of recovery.
Recovery Coaching addresses the system of addiction as a tool is used to effect change within any part of the system. With this in mind the Recovery Coaching Model can be just as easily used with family members, loved ones or within the work place. With this in mind, one can easily “bolt on” Recovery Coaching to a family programme, an EAP (Employee Assistance programme) or Corporate Wellness programmes.
It is vital that our learners have an in-depth understanding of the 12 Step treatment model, prior to attending this advanced training. Students that have gained sufficient experience or have a “solid” understanding of the 12 Step treatment model could be considered for the training.
