About the Recovery Coach Opportunity

  • A Recovery Coach can support someone in recovery or working toward recovery from addiction. Recovery Coaching is an ongoing relationship that helps those who are in or considering recovery to achieve positive change in their lives.
  • Recovery coaches help people start and maintain recovery from substance use disorder or addiction by helping to develop a recovery plan, removing barriers and obstacles to recovery, and helping people find services and support (like harm reduction, detox, or support groups).
  • Being Recovery Coach certified makes you eligible for jobs with stable funding, such as jobs funded by state justice systems, or federal grants.
  • You can read more about being a Recovery Coach in NYS here.
