Recovery Coach Professionals, using the CCAR model to positively impact recovery

The Recovery Coach Academy provides world class training and certification for Recovery Coaching. We train and advocate for Recovery Coaching in order to have a positive impact on individuals, families and communities affected by substance use and other addictions. We also provide further training and professional support to qualified Recovery Coaches or those interested in learning about Recovery Coaching.

So far we have trained and supported people in more than 7 countries in the art and science of recovery coaching along with helping implement recovery coaching in 55 organisations. Our community is full of individuals starting their own businesses, projects, and community activities while also collaborating with each other and accessing ongoing support and education from our team where needed. We have had students published in magazines, articles, on podcasts, speaker events, and published in the British Medical Journal due to the positive impact of Recovery Coaching.
