The Certified Addiction Peer Recovery Coach Training Course is a five-day, thirty-hour interactive knowledge and skill development training designed for those desiring to provide recovery coaching in a variety of recovery settings. Participants will learn how to promote recovery for people seeking or in recovery from alcohol and other drug addiction and how to help remove obstacles and barriers to recovery. Participants will be expected to attend all five days of this training.
This course offers a comprehensive overview of the purpose, scope, roles and techniques of recovery coaching. Participants will have opportunities to practice recovery coaching skills and to explore the roles associated with recovery coaching: resource broker, role model and mentor, motivator, problem solver, advocate, organizer and lifestyle consultant. Participants will also learn that a recovery coach is not a sponsor, counselor, nurse/doctor or clergy.
This training satisfies thirty (30) hours of the fifty-two (52) hour training requirement for ICAADA’s Certified Addiction Peer Recovery Coach credential. In addition to ICAADA CEUs, this training is approved for CEUs from the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency.
