Recovery Coaching is an innovative and effective form of peer-to-peer recovery support. RecoveryCorps coaches will serve as personal guides and mentors for people seeking recovery, helping them remove barriers and navigate systems to meet their treatment, wellness and recovery support goals. Healthy Acadia, along with multiple other organizations across a six-county service area (Aroostook, Hancock, Knox, Penobscot, Waldo, and Washington) are engaged in this program. Each RecoveryCorps member will serve at an organization in one of these regions and provide peer recovery coach services to those seeking recovery. We are seeking full-time and part-time members.
All potential RecoveryCorps Coaches must have at least one year of active involvement in their recovery process, if they self-identify as being in personal recovery from substance use. People with a commitment to the recovery process who do not have personal histories of past drug or alcohol use are also encouraged to become recovery coaches, if they have strong demonstrated personal experience with the recovery process.
A recovery coach has to be a role model for others seeking recovery. RecoveryCorps Coaches honor all paths to recovery and help promote recovery by removing barriers and obstacles to recovery through serving as a personal guide and mentor for people seeking recovery.
