There are many forms of recovery coaches at the moment and we want people to know exactly who we are and what we do. Even recovery coaches can describe themselves differently within their own group. We thought it would be good to have a common language and common presentation available to all of our members so that we are all describing the same thing. So, eventually, when someone says they are a recovery coach, people will know what you are talking about and it will come from a unified message.
Feel free to use this material to speak in your communities or present to different organizations. We envision this as a win-win for our members and for RCI. The more you speak the greater the interest in your services, and hopefully, the more work you will get. For RCI, part of our mission is to advance, promote and provide evidence-based coaching to the addiction recovery community. Hopefully, this can accomplish that to some degree.
Here is a sample of the presentation. You have complete freedom as to what you say when you present the slideshow. This is included as possible material for you to build upon.
RCI Has Paused Accepting Applications to Certify Recovery Coaches
Several of you have complained that our current certification process does not include Recovery Support Specialists, also know as Peer Recovery Specialists in some states. WE AGREE this is unfair to our fellow Support Specialists, and we want to correct that immediately. In order to do so, we are suspending our current certification process and working hard to make it more fair and appropriately inclusive. We hope you'll look forward to seeing just how RCI is changing to stay current with the times and begin providing valuable services to all who want to be included.
We Will Resume With a Bigger, Better and More Meaningful Certification Process Soon!
