TAC Recovery Coaches offer strengths-based support for individuals who are in early recovery from alcohol, other drugs, codependency, or other addictive behaviors. They play a key role in helping our clients who are making important decisions about what to do with their life and how addiction or recovery plays in it.
Our recovery coaches do not offer primary treatment for addiction and do not diagnose. Our recovery coaches support any positive change, helping our clients coming home from treatment to avoid relapse, build community support for recovery, and work on life goals related to recovery such as relationships, work, education etc. Recovery coaching is action oriented with an emphasis on improving present life and reaching goals for the future while preventing relapse.
Recovery coaching is unlike most therapy because our coaches do not address the past, do not work to heal trauma, and there is little emphasis on feelings. Recovery coaches are unlike licensed addiction counselors in that coaches are non-clinical and do not diagnose or treat addiction or any mental health issues. Given that, we make it a priority to connect clinical supports to our clients to ensure they are continuing this important work following treatment.
