It is safe to say addiction treatment has been one of the fastest-evolving areas of medicine in the last ten years. Long gone are the days of short, intensive inpatient stays that did little to support long-term addiction recovery. Today, people looking to overcome an addiction to drugs or alcohol have myriad treatment options to choose from, from outpatient programs to aftercare programs that support long-term sobriety.
One such treatment option is recovery coaching, which pairs people in recovery with a person whose goal is to help support them on every step of their recovery. Mind Body Wellness offers recovery coaching in addition to our many other services. Having a recovery coach can make a significant improvement in a person’s chances of avoiding relapse. It also gives them a built-in support system no matter what obstacles they face.
Traditional addiction treatments such as behavioral therapy and medication-assisted treatment are highly effective at helping reduce withdrawal and cravings. Despite this, they don’t always provide all of the support that some clients need. Overcoming addiction means more than simply stopping your substance use. It means overcoming mental and emotional turmoil, repairing personal relationships, changing bad habits, and getting back into the workforce.
Having someone who can be there for you when you need to talk or need support can be vital. This is what recovery coaching is for. We provide you with an extra layer of support during your recovery process.
Recovery coaching has one goal—to support clients on their recovery journey in any way that they can. Coaches are not licensed clinicians or counselors, so they cannot prescribe medication or make decisions or changes to your other treatments. Instead, your coach will offer guidance and tools that help you follow your recovery plan and reach your treatment goals. Some of the things that your coach may do include:
When it comes to what to expect in our recovery coaching services, it may look a little different for each client. Some coaches and clients choose to meet in person, whereas others may utilize remote video chat. In addition, some coaches may act as sober companions, living with their clients until they are ready to live on their own. This means that some clients may see their coaches nearly 24 hours a day. However, others may just need an occasional check-in to stay on track.
No matter what amount of time you spend in our recovery coaching program, your journey will usually begin with an initial meeting where your coach will go over your history with addiction. Afterward, they will work to set clear goals for you to attain. As you continue working with your coach, you will both keep track of what is working and what isn’t. This is so your plan can be altered to give you the best chances of moving forward with your recovery.
One of the most important components of a successful recovery from a drug or alcohol addiction is feeling like you are being heard and supported. Your coach will actively listen to you, talk to you in a positive way, and work to keep you upbeat. Your coach will also help you by encouraging you to take time for self-care. This is a very important part of a positive recovery. They will also help by teaching you healthy coping strategies, for instance, such as mindfulness, learning new hobbies, trying new physical activities, and more.
The main part to remember about our recovery coaching is it encourages you to make attainable goals. In addition, it teaches you ways to take daily steps to reach those goals. Though recovery coaching may be one of the newer addiction treatment options, studies have already shown that it presents a valuable option that goes beyond the usual treatments. A coach helps make recovery feel more personal and less clinical. In addition, it gives clients someone they know they can rely on when recovery gets tough.
