Working with a Recovery Coach

by Bill Weiss bill@recoverylocal.org

Your Best Interests Are in Mind

A lot of recovery coaches used to be addicts and/or alcoholics, they know what it’s like to be in your shoes. Having someone with years or decades of experience backing you without judgment supports your success. They will be able to provide words of encouragement and brainstorm solutions. During a session, you will be given continuous attention in a one-on-one setting. Your coach is committed to seeing you succeed. Any of the sessions that take place with you and your coach will be all about you and completely confidential.

Overcoming Obstacles

Helping you to correctly identify challenges and address them accordingly is one of the strongest abilities of a coach. Everyday life is filled with various challenges that we face and overcome.  A coach will help you go through, over or around obstacles that may be interfering with your quality life. Learning how to deal with these life stressors will lead to a better, happier and more fulfilling life. A coach will support your reflection and self-awareness while simultaneously building confidence. A coach can help you cope with the stigma of being a recovery addict. This will help you clearly identify challenges and plan how to overcome challenges that may be in your way.

A Recovery Coach Can Help Prevent Relapse

The true value of a quality recovery coach is unmeasurable. The success and achievements you can see when working with the right coach are truly amazing. Things that used to cause fear and anxiety that may have prevented you from tapping into your true potential or possibly relapsing are now a thing of the past. A coach is your biggest, non-judgmental supporter. They believe in you and what you can be. The benefits of having a coach are truly limitless. Find out what you’re capable of and become the person you were always meant to be.
