Recovery Coaches provide recovery coaching/mentoring & maintain weekly contact with the peer through face-to-face contacts and telephone coaching as needed to discuss recovery goals, assist with barriers to recovery, respond to challenges that may be encountered and meet individual needs. Coaches offer service referral & linkage/navigation of resources to help address employment, education, health, housing, social, spiritual and family needs. Coaches aid in building recovery capital & encourage women to develop positive relationships supportive of their new goals. The coach shares personal experiences to illustrate obstacles that may be faced and methods of overcoming barriers. Coaches are on call evenings, weekends & holidays to address emergencies. In cases of relapse, coaches facilitate check-in with a treatment program & readmission if needed to minimize consequences of relapse. The Recovery Wellness Plan and the Recovery Capital Scale are ongoing & updated as needed by the woman with the coach’s support.
