What is a Recovery Coach?

A Recovery Coach is a therapeutic professional who helps individuals recover from addiction. Recovery Coaches provide expert support and guidance to help their clients overcome the challenges of addiction and avoid slips and setbacks in recovery.

Recovery coaching helps people stay motivated and focused on their recovery goals, and coaching has been shown to improve recovery rates, reduce relapse rates, and improve quality of life for the subject and their loved ones.

A more personal, bespoke recovery experience

Recovery Coaching is one of the primary components of Suntra’s concierge recovery services. Our Recovery Coaches combine their own personal experiences in addiction and sobriety with extensive training and clinical certifications in a variety of therapeutic models.

We work with our clients to develop a personalized treatment plan, and set realistic, achievable goals for recovery. We help clients identify triggers and cope with cravings so they’re better equipped for successful long term sobriety.

Suntra delivers a more personal, bespoke recovery experience for discerning individuals who are ready for a sober lifestyle.

We’re all in this together

Suntra Modern Recovery Coaches help clients connect with new meetings, new fellowships, and new ways of thinking about recovery. We help them build a sober support system that includes both professionals and nonprofessionals in recovery that they can depend on in a crisis.

How is Suntra Recovery Coaching different?

At Suntra, we recognize that people with addiction have unique needs that aren’t always addressed by a dogmatic, one-size-fits-all approach to recovery.

We get to know our clients and find out what makes them tick, and then we work together to develop a therapeutic plan that addresses both the day-to-day challenges of sobriety and the deeper issues at the heart of their addiction.

The Suntra Guide to Recovery Coach Certifications

There are a number of Recovery Coach certifications available from accredited, reputable organizations. Here’s our guide to understanding the differences, features, and benefits of each.

The CASAC (Certified Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counselor) certification is perhaps the most comprehensive recovery coach certification. It is offered by the National Association of Addiction Counselors (NAADAC). The CASAC certification requires successful completion of an educational program, as well as passing a rigorous examination. CASAC certifications are valid for a period of five years, after which time they must be renewed. The CASAC certification is recognized by most states as the highest level of recovery coaching certification.

Treatment professionals who possess the CASAC certification are considered to be experts in the field of addiction counseling. They are often sought out by individuals and families seeking the most comprehensive and effective treatment available. Treatment professionals who hold the CASAC certification have made a commitment to excellence in the field of addiction counseling, and they are highly respected by their peers.

CCAR is an intensive, 5-day immersive recovery coach training program. It is the only certification that is accredited by the National Board for Certified Counselors. CCAR sets the standard for recovery coaching, and it is widely recognized as the gold standard in the industry. The CCAR certification is valid for three years, and it is transferable to other states. CCAR also offers a one-year renewal option.

Recovery coaching is a relatively new field, and CCAR is at the forefront of this rapidly growing industry. CCAR trains Recovery Coaches to work with individuals who are in treatment, or who are seeking treatment, for substance use disorders. Recovery Coaches provide support, guidance, and accountability to individuals in early recovery.

CCAR graduates are prepared to work in a variety of settings, including treatment centers, sober homes, support groups, and private practice. CCAR is committed to providing the highest quality education and training for Recovery Coaches.

The CPRC (Certified Professional Recovery Coach) certification is offered by the International Association of Recovery Coaches (IARC). The CPRC is the premier credential for professional recovery coaches. It is the only globally recognized professional certification for recovery coaching, and it is administered by a non-profit organization.

The CPRC sets the standard for excellence in recovery coaching, and it is widely recognized by treatment providers, coaches, and the general public. The CPRC certification represents a commitment to helping others in their journey to recovery. It is a symbol of hope and possibility, and it represents a dedication to making a difference in the lives of those who are struggling with addiction.

The CARC (Certified Addiction Recovery Coach) certification is offered by the American Association of Recovery Coaches (AARC). The AARC is a professional organization that trains and certifies coaches who work with clients in recovery from substance use disorders. The CARC certification is evidence-based and nationally recognized. It is the only certification that specifically focuses on addiction recovery coaching.

Recovery coaching is a strengths-based, client-centered approach to helping people in recovery from substance use disorders achieve their goals. Treatment professionals who are certified as CARC’s have specialized training in working with clients in recovery and understand the unique challenges they face. CARC-certified coaches work with clients to identify their goals and create a plan to achieve them, and provide support and encouragement throughout the early recovery, treatment, and aftercare process.

How do I know if I need a Recovery Coach?2022-10-05T19:28:11-04:00

Recovery Coaching is a concierge addiction service meant to provide support and guidance for motivated individuals that need a little help in their recovery.

Is a Recovery Coach the same as a therapist?2022-10-05T19:17:40-04:00

Recovery coaching is different from therapy or counseling in that Coaching is goal-oriented and focuses on helping clients take action and complete measurable steps to achieve their goals, while therapists and counselors usually delve deeper into their clients’ emotional and psychological issues. 

In other words, therapists help clients work through their mental and emotional issues, while Recovery Coaches deal with the practical and pragmatic side of addiction, helping clients successfully navigate the day-to-day challenges of early recovery. 

What kinds of things does a Recovery Coach help with?2022-10-05T19:25:41-04:00

Recovery Coaches help people who are affected by addiction and alcoholism. Recovery Coaching bridges the gaps between treatment providers, and takes a little of the pressure off of families, who often have been trying to help their loved ones for months or even years of active addiction. Recovery Coaches help their clients stay motivated and focused on their recovery goals, including:

  • Goal setting
  • Making (and keeping) doctor and psych appointments
  • Choosing the right treatment providers
  • Locating 12-step or other peer support meetings
  • Developing a plan for maintaining sobriety
  • Identifying potential triggers and learning how to cope with them
