Recovery Coaching Resources

Recovery Coach Learning Community 

The Massachusetts Recovery Coach Learning Community is a monthly discussion group open to everyone who has completed the Recovery Coach Academy training.  The goal of the Learning Community is to create a supportive network of competent recovery coaches and allows recovery coaches to learn from their peers.  The Learning Community provides a platform for recovery coaches to learn about strategies and resources for effective coaching; to receive support and guidance; and, to share your wisdom and lessons learned.

The ATR Recovery Learning Community has been discontinued and will re-emerge as the BSAS Recovery Learning Community within the next few months.  If you attended Recovery Coach Academy or Recovery Coach Supervisor training, you will be receiving a survey to assist with future planning of the recovery learning community.  Please keep an eye out for it in your email.
