Addiction is more than a chemical dependency, the root cause of substance abuse is a means of coping with difficult emotions, or a set of unhealthy habits. In early recovery having someone to talk to and maintaining sober support is vital to maintaining sobriety. Having the support of someone who has training or experience in substance use disorder and mental health, they can offer solutions and support that might be hard to find otherwise.
Root Recovery has partnered with Being True to You’s "Addiction Recovery Coaching Program," which is a revolutionary approach to facing addiction that is based on “transformational recovery.” This model focuses on the opportunity of recovery more than the “disease” and problem of addiction. The program is designed to be fun, motivating, life-changing, practical, and customizable. Through personal transformation a person can naturally mature out of their addiction and achieve success far beyond sobriety, on their own terms.
Our recovery coaching model is both trauma and addiction informed and is most effective when used as part of a comprehensive plan that includes appropriate social support and practicing new lifestyle skills, which we provide at Root Recovery.
We have adapted our method of recovery coaching to include integration work, thus making meaning of the experience. We also teach how to tap into the intelligence of the body to move out traumatic or otherwise charged content that may be contributing to the urge to use.
A recovery coach serves the purpose of supporting a client while also holding them accountable as they pursue their unique goals. While a therapist may be able to diagnose mental health disorders and encourage treatment, a recovery coach offers the tools, guidance, and support an individual needs to follow their own path. This may include:
Recovery coaches offer assistance to help individuals with the day-to-day process of overcoming addiction and living a healthy life in recovery. Recovery coaches will create a trustworthy relationship with the client by practicing active listening, maintaining a positive tone, offering encouragement during struggles, and helping to keep an overall positive outlook on life.
At Root Recovery our recovery coaching uses an integrative model that begins to help individuals heal, foster growth, and utilize new coping skills. Other benefits of our recovery coaching can include:
Through our recovery coaching program at Root Recovery, you will receive an invaluable source of information for your quest for a sustainable recovery from addiction. Whether you are struggling with addiction, trauma, or a co-occurring disorder, you are in the right place.
The longer an individual engages in recovery support services, the stronger chance they have of achieving and maintaining permanent sobriety.
