Neighbors Helping Neighbors: Recovery Coaches

Key Discussion Points:
a) Substance Use Disorder (SUD) touches all of our lives – directly or indirectly. We all know someone – or know of someone affected – by SUD. Some of us know many people, including family members, neighbors, friends and fellow employees.
b) Recovery coaching is a form of strengths-based support for persons with addictions or in recovery from alcohol, other drugs, codependency, or other addictive behaviors. Recovery coaches work with persons with active addictions as well as persons already in recovery.
c) Healthy Acadia is developing and implementing Recovery Coaches in Hancock, Washington and Penobscot County now – training over 105 people in 7 months with more on the way.
d) Recovery Coach volunteers are sorely needed!
