Peer Recovery Advocacy and Coaching Training

Develop non-clinical, peer based recovery advocacy and coaching skills designed to engage peers beyond initial contact through stabilization and into recovery maintenance within the community. Identify multiple pathways to recovery, build recovery capital and individualized recovery wellness plans, assist in self-monitored progress, integrate personal experience, facilitate peer support groups, identify community and individual supports and service; and practice effective coping skills. The program includes the 30-hour Peer Recovery Coaching and the required 16-hours of Ethics. 

This 46-hour program is ideal for those who have personal experience with an addiction. Perhaps you have lived through it yourself or perhaps you have helped a friend or member of your family live through it. To discuss course content, contact Professor Elaine Corwin at 607-962-9395.
