Going through recovery can be one of the most challenging and heart-wrenching struggles for addicts. A recovery coach is someone who will help you stay active and identify the right path for sobriety.
Some people also call a Recovery Coach a Sobriety Coach. This term is highly generic, and it covers a wide range of different roles. They are highly instrumental and provide great support to people who are struggling to overcome their compulsiveness, impulsiveness, obsessiveness, and other facets of human behavior.
They are a “Life Coach,” helping their clients identify situations better and train them to make smart choices and make fruitful decisions. The top priority for them is to help the clients to stay healthy and develop strong resistance towards alcohol, drugs, and other unhealthy lifestyles.
It is said that hiring a Recovery Coach is very much like getting yourself an insurance policy against relapse. If you need help, then please call now.
Why a Recovery Coach?
There are thousands of people who go to treatment centers for recovery from addiction. These programs are highly safe. Putting the patients in a thoroughly structured environment helps them to push themselves and learn and develop a new, healthy, and nourishing lifestyle.
At the same time, “Rehab” is considered a difficult and challenging experience. The most difficult and tough time for an addict will be the first 90 days after getting out of the treatment.
When the person gets out of the treatment and returns home, there are lots of chances that the old routines and familiar sights can trigger and even entice them, paving the way for relapse. At the same time, the realities of life, such as job pressures, family tension, bills piling up, can all take over the person in an overwhelming way.
When a person is stuck in such a position, a Recovery Coach is the right choice to help him get through.
Inspiration, Leadership, and Support
Recovery Coaches have extensive experience and expertise in helping the client recover. They can help him identify the right path to abstinence and sobriety.
They are a bridge between the secure and comfortable world of treatment to the real-life challenges that the world can bring forth in the form of old temptations that will ultimately disturb your recovery process.
Recovery Coaches work daily. They help the clients establish clean and healthy habits and motivate them to follow them on a routine basis. They follow up on the timetable and ensure that the clients stay on the right track. This helps in reinforcing good habits and living a healthy lifestyle. Further, they help the clients connect with some support groups and other recovery communities. This puts the clients in a familiar social circle, helping them also by supporting their sobriety.
Following are the options that recovery coaches put forth their clients:
- twelve-step programs
- Therapists, psychologists, homeopathy and other medical support
- Outpatient support groups and programs that guarantee clients a healthy level of support
- A gym, yoga studio, or other highly physical and athletic activities such as running or cycling club
- A promoter to guide them through their 12-step recovery program
This way, the Recovery Coach helps the client identify a possible path to recovery. At the same time, they remind and support them to have fun and explore new hobbies and activities that aggravate their healing process.
Why Use A Recovery Coach When You Can Go to AA And Get A Sponsor for Free?
We must first understand that a Recovery Coach is not an AA sponsor. Although they have lots of characteristics of a great sponsor, they are much more than that.
Their job role includes a thorough assessment of the client’s requirements. They also create a chart tracking their progress. Based on their knowledge, they recommend suitable options helping them carry forward their recovery process.
A Recovery Coach is different than a sponsor because they provide professional guidance at a personal level. They are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They work for you. By knowing you, they form a chart that devises a plan that will help you focus on your path to recovery. They continuously assess you and based on your improvements; they modify the projects as per your requirements and pace of your progress.
You will find a good Recovery Coach who leads ahead by example. They regularly share with you what’s worked in the past and make you realize how time has changed and what’s working now. They work with you on a highly personal level. They maintain a strong spiritual and mental touch with you.
Beyond this, they help their clients stay firm on the path of sobriety and help them identify a way to a happy and healthy life.
They further help you create healthy boundaries and compartmentalize essential facets of your life. They help you learn vital communication and soft skills that will help you find new and real dynamics with your family members and challenging relationships in your life. On the other hand, this will help you healthily deal with your professional life too. You can maintain proper relations within the confines of professionalism with your co-workers, customers, and colleagues by teaching you what to say and what not to say.
