An individualized relationship that partners with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that takes an action-oriented stance in assisting clients to create practical strategies to reach their recovery goals.
Recovery coaching is a growing field and common component of today's addiction treatment team.
Coaches focus on relationships and enhancing personal development through goals defined by the client. The purpose is to engage clients then turn their insight into sustainable action.
It is intended to be a transformative process for personal and professional awareness, discovery, and growth. Professional recovery coaches take a practical, action-oriented stance in assisting clients to create practical strategies to reach their goals.
It's a strengths-based, client-led model with a focus on present abilities and assets that individuals can bring to overcome a problem or crisis.
Every client has unique, individual strengths, abilities and assets that can be used in their recovery process. Every clients has inner strength and power to be their own rescuer. The purpose of coaching is not to "fix" anyone or to show someone the way to true recovery. The purpose is to help the individual unlock the potential that is already inside. It acknowledges that for successful and sustainable recovery to take place, the client must become an active participant and ultimately the leader in their own recovery.
With this in mind, it should be noted that the coach is not making the decisions for the client, rather they help the client to act as a guide to follow through on decisions they've made.
Professional recovery coaching is client-centered, action-oriented and solutions (not problems)-focused.
The coaches role is to build confidence, create forward movement and facilitate motivation. The coach will collaborate, help identify successes, address current obstacles, instill hope for the future, and boost moral and self-confidence along the way.
One of the most difficult phases of recovery is the period between the final level of care and stable, self-supported sobriety. A professional recovery coach is uniquely positioned to smooth this transition and increase the likelihood for stable, lasting, purposeful recovery.
Private, individualized, 1:1 coaching
The role of the recovery coach is to grow our capacity for feeling in relational peace with ourselves, others, and our universe. We help clients function best in a synchronized state of attunement. We help clients reset their nervous system to reestablish what "normal" feels like. Relationships in recovery have the potential to train the brain more powerfully than information, if they're joyful and synchronized so coaches work to identify and then expand upon these relationships.
Building relational capacity is what makes professional recovery coaching unique.
Our job is to devise specific strategies for clients to solve their own problems.
Coaching is educative, action-oriented, problem, solution-focused, client-centered care. The goal is to listen, outline specific solutions to problems, resolve ambivalence, and identify goals.
Ultimately, coaching is an ongoing relationship. It's a transformative process that has the ability to lead clients towards personal awareness and growth.
Recovery coaching is NOT a treatment program.
It is a professional coaching model that is intended to complement - not replace - treatment, counseling, or 12-step mutual aid groups.
The purpose is to offer professional, yet practical strategies that can accelerate recovery and help clients replace their self-defeating, addiction based habits with new and healthier ones that address the body, mind, and spirit.
At Reaction Recovery, we attempt to provide a roadmap based on sound recovery principles and offer strategies to accelerate recovery practices.
