What if a simple conversation could help someone take that first step toward recovery? CCAR, the developer of the most widely used and trusted curriculum for recovery coaches across the globe, has created a Beginner’s Guide to Coaching Recovery – an introductory class to help initiate and navigate a conversation with someone struggling with substance use. Family members, friends, and colleagues are often the first to notice the problem but may not have the tools to broach the topic. This session will help you have that conversation.
Learning Objectives
  • Participants will be able to provide and compare different definitions of recovery.
  • Participants will be able to use three tools to engage in conversations that shift perspectives and inspire change.
  • Participants will be able to describe multiple recovery pathways and realize the power of personal choice and its importance in the recovery process.
