Recovery Coach Academy


The CCAR Recovery Coach Training offered at the Café is designed to prepare participants with the skills necessary to successfully deliver Recovery Coach Services to individuals seeking to provide support, mentor, and guide persons on the path to recovery from substance use, mental health, and/or physical health related issues.


What is a Recovery Coach?


A Recovery Coach is an individual in sustained recovery who assists others in recovery from substance use, mental health, and/or physical health issues by removing barriers and obstacles to recovery and serving as a personal guide and mentor.

Recovery Coaches are making their place within our community. There are many different names of what a Coach does, but what distinguishes a Recovery Coach from other peer positions is that we stay in our lane as recovery coaches, utilizing the fundamentals of the CCAR Recovery Coach Model.




CCAR’s Recovery Coach Academy was conceived in 2008 in response to the needs of the volunteers in the CCAR Recovery Community Centers. They asked for more trainings to better handle the variety’s of scenarios and situations generated from recoveree’s who frequented the centers. This included engagement and communication skills. When graduates returned from the academy , they started calling themselves “Recovery Coaches.”
