Why More Addiction Recovery Coaches are Needed

There are a growing number of addiction recovery coach jobs available today, but there aren't enough certified addiction recovery coaches to fill those jobs. This is an unfortunate fact because a good addiction recovery life coach plays an integral role in the life of those seeking sobriety. In fact, those who work with a certified addiction peer recovery coach are more likely to stay in treatment and less likely to relapse.

What is an addiction recovery coach?

Zip Recruiter offers the following for an addiction recovery coach job description:

"As a recovery coach, your clients are in a recovery program for addiction, 
such as drug or alcohol programs, and your job is to help them create a 
recovery plan to overcome their addiction and stay sober. You are a mentor 
and role model and encourage your clients to work through difficult times 
and relapses."

How can an addictions recovery coach help me?

Now that you understand what an addiction recovery coach does, you may wonder how they can help you. There are actually many things you should expect to achieve through coaching. Some of these things include:
  • Not only being able to navigate life without your substance of choice but truly living life to its fullest.
  • Walking through life's trials with someone at your side to root you on. Whether that means working to regain custody of your children or finding a full-time job, it's great to know that you don't have to do these things alone.
  • Having someone help you find ways to meet your essential needs. This includes setting up doctors' appointments, finding food banks, obtaining a job, getting shelter, and possibly even returning to school.
  • Finding you group meetings either online or in-person so you can build a support system for your new life. 

As you can see, an addiction recovery coach is not a therapist. However, they're someone with lived experience who understands how much support you need so that you can change your life. They live this understanding and experience out with you so you're able to succeed in sobriety.
