The CCAR Recovery Coach Academy©  was conceived in 2008 in response to the needs of volunteers in the CCAR recovery community centers. They asked for more training to better handle the variety of scenarios and situations  generated from recoverees who frequented the centers.  This included engagement and communication skills.  When graduates returned from the academy, they started calling themselves “recovery coaches”.

The CCAR Recovery Coach Academy© is a 5-day intensive training academy focusing on providing individuals with the skills need to guide, mentor and support anyone who would like to enter into or sustain long-term recovery from an addiction to alcohol or other drugs.  Provided in a retreat like environment, the CCAR Recovery Coach Academy© prepares participants by helping them to actively listen,  ask really good questions, and discover and manage their own stuff.
