SOS Recovery Coaches offer recovery support and help with obtaining community-based services and resources, while providing hope and positive role modeling. Our coaches also work with recoverees to develop their own individual recovery plans.
SOS Recovery Coaches promote recovery; remove barriers; build recovery capital; connect recoverees with recovery support services; and encourage hope, optimism and healthy living. Recovery coaches often will assist individuals in removing various barriers such as assisting with employment, housing, educational needs, connections to mental health resources when desired, connections to meetings through multiple pathways as well as recovery oriented social network events, activities and other wellness related opportunities. SOS Recovery Coaches will also provide crisis response and resources to those who may currently be struggling with substance misuse and are seeking treatment and recovery options.
Recovery coaching is for people both in recovery from addiction themselves, or for family members, friends and loved ones of those who have been affected by another’s addiction.
Recovery coaches are not therapists, counselors, clinicians, clergy or 12 step sponsors. They occupy a very unique and distinct lane on the recovery highway.
Recovery coaching in the SOS Recovery Community Centers is provided by trained recovery coaches, free of charge. All SOS Recovery Coaches have completed a 30 hour recovery coach academy as well as over fourteen hours of ethics training. Anyone who is seeking to initiate or sustain their recovery is welcome. At SOS Recovery Community Organization, you are in recovery if you say you are
