Recovery Coach Statewide Academics
Recovery Coaches promote recovery by removing barriers and obstacles to recovery and serving as personal guides and mentors for people who are seeking or already in recovery.

The WVRCA training focuses on providing individuals with the skills needed to guide, mentor and support anyone who would like to enter into or sustain long-term recovery from an addiction to alcohol and other drugs, mental illness and/or trauma. The WVRCA prepares participants by helping them actively listen, ask appropriate questions and discover ways to manage their own issues while providing resources.

After completing this class, students are then required to complete 16 clinical training hours to help our local recovery community. Once all requirements are completed, students receive three third-party college credits from Blue Ridge Community and Technical College.

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:

• Describe the role of the Recovery Coach and functions

• List the components, core values and guiding principles of recovery

• Build skills to enhance relationships

• Explore many dimensions of recovery and recovery coaching

• Discover attitudes about self-disclosure and sharing your story

• Understand the stages of recovery

• Describe the stages of change and their applications

• Increase their awareness of culture, power and privilege

• Address ethical and boundary issues

• Experience recovery wellness planning
