Recovery Coaching continues to gain momentum throughout the country, and with good reason. Recovery Coaches can, and do, connect people to long term and sustained recovery.  Because of this, more and more, coaches are being utilized in a variety of settings, including doctors offices, police stations, drug courts, treatment centers, and most notably Emergency Departments.  The need for skilled coaches who can easily adapt and work in a fast-paced ED setting is growing exponentially.  As providers of the CT ED Recovery Coaches program, CCAR has learned a great deal about the different training needs of those who choose to serve in this unique role.

This course prepares participants for the challenging and rewarding role of a Recovery Coach in the Emergency Department. It is also recommended for coaches working in courts, police departments, treatment centers, and other unique settings.

Learning Objectives for this course include:

  • Describe the roles and functions of the Recovery Coach working in the Emergency Department;
  • Understand and practice staying in your lane;
  • Develop skills to advocate and educate staff, patients, etc. as a way to demonstrate accountability within the role;
  • Use of Motivational Interviewing (MI) to bring people through the stages of change into Recovery;
