Recovery/Life Coaching

Making a better life

This is the fourth and final step of the recovery process and what I like to call the 4 2 infinity plan. The person needs to start improving his/her life after rehabilitation. Now that the patient has learned to function without drugs or alcohol, they need to work on and solve the problems that using caused in their life. These may include legal, financial, physical, emotional and social problems. Dealing with these problems alone can be a daunting task and more often than not, help may be needed. This is where a recovery coach can help. A recovery coach can help improve an addict’s quality of life by working with them to fix the problems using has caused for them and to also help them set goals and improve other areas of their life as well, so staying clean becomes an obvious choice. In my experience and research, I have found 4 months to be the first pivotal point in the addict’s recovery. In the first four months of sobriety, if the addict has not seen improvement in some area of their life, they are more likely to return back to their old ways. 2 years becomes the next key time point. At two years of sobriety, some major problems associated with the using should be solved and life directions begin to become clearer. After 2 years of sobriety, for each person it’s different. Every one’s recovery is different. No one chose’s to be an addict, but you can choose to recover.

What is Recovery Coaching?

Recovery Coaching is an ongoing professional relationship that helps folks who are in or who are considering recovery from addiction to produce extraordinary results in their lives, careers, businesses, or organizations—while advancing their recovery from addiction.

Recovery Coaches affirm that there is innate health and wellness in each of our clients. We hold our clients creative and resourceful. We do not promote or endorse any single or particular way of achieving or maintaining sobriety, abstinence, or serenity or of reducing suffering from addiction. Our focus is on coaching our clients to create and sustain great and meaningful lives.

Through the process of Recovery Coaching, clients deepen their learning, improve their performance, and enhance their quality of life. In each meeting, the client chooses the focus of conversation, while the coach listens and contributes observations and questions. This interaction creates clarity and moves the client toward action. Recovery Coaching accelerates the client’s progress in recovery by providing greater focus and awareness of choices, actions, and responsibility. Coaching concentrates on where clients are now and what they are willing to do to enjoy a better tomorrow.

The Recovery Coaching process recognizes that results are a matter of the client’s intentions, choices, and actions taken toward building a strong foundation and creating a life worth staying healthy for, supported by the coach’s efforts and application of the coaching process.

A recovery coach can help you set and reach your goals and make a better life after dealing with an addiction. If you would like help making a better life I can be reached at:
