Recovery Coaching is a common tool that is used when helping people maintain sobriety. While many people think of this service as something similar to a sponsor from AA or NA, our team offers so much more to our clients when it comes to extended recovery. Our team of trained professionals has the skills needed to help you navigate not just the road to recovery but also the path after sobriety, helping clients maintain sobriety for many years to come.
What’s the Difference Between Recovery Coaching and a Sponsor?
While there are a few differences, one of the main, or most important differences between the two is that a sponsor will be program oriented and trained to work addicts through the 12-step program of recovery, whereas a recovery coach is there to help guide you through your day-to-day life, sober and hold you accountable for doing the work, including the 12 steps with your sponsor. Unlike a 12-step program, a recovery coach is there to help you as long as needed, guiding you through life as needed, and often meeting with their sober clients up to 3 times a week.
While Recovery Coaches are trained professionals, they embody immense compassion while still upholding professionalism to ensure that those in recovery continue on their healing journey. From establishing recovery goals to monitoring urinalysis testing, providing additional recourses that may be helpful, as well as communicating with family members to track progress, there are a lot of roles that a Recovery Coach embodies.
Oftentimes Recovery Coaching is only thought of for the patient, however, recovery coaches are often available for not just those battling addiction, but the family members who may be involved as well. Addiction and sobriety are both difficult roads to travel and they don’t just effect one person which is why you may find yourself wanting both a recovery coach as well as family coaching and mentoring services.
The list of services and benefits provided by recovery coaching seems endless. Due to their ability to keep clients on the path of sobriety, ease the worry of relapse, set goals, and help maintain healthy lifestyles, recovery coaches are often seen as the pinnacle of long-term sobriety. With years of experience, recovery coaches are able to create a true bond of trust and understanding with patients, allowing those in recovery to feel as if they have someone in their corner, cheering them on and helping them reach each goal that’s been set throughout their recovery process.
