Healthy Acadia to Offer Recovery Coach Training

Healthy Acadia is excited to offer a Connecticut Community for Addiction (CCAR) Recovery Coach Training on January 14, 15 and 16, 2017. The 30-hour CCAR Recovery Coach Training program will be offered as a three-day course at the University of Maine Co-operative Extension office in Ellsworth.  Classes will meet from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm each day. Participants will be expected to complete an additional hour of independent study daily to complete the training program. 

Recovery coaches are individuals who may be in recovery, a friend or family member of someone in recovery, or a recovery ally. This training will provide participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to guide and mentor others through their own recovery process. 

Participants will learn to:

  • Describe the roles and functions of a recovery coach
  • List the components, core values & guiding principles of recovery
  • Build skills to embrace relationships
  • Explore many dimensions of recovery & recovery coaching
  • Discover attitudes about self-disclosure & sharing your story
  • Understand the stages of recovery
  • Explore ethical and boundary issues
  • Experience recovery wellness planning
  • And more.

The course will be taught by certified CCAR trainers Denise Black and Terri Woodruff of Healthy Acadia. The tuition cost for the training is $100 per participant, which includes the course workbook and light refreshments. Advance registration and payment are required. 30 CEU’s are available for full training completion. Financial scholarships are available upon request, and interested community members are encouraged to call Healthy Acadia for more details.
