Recovery Coach Academy

This training is funded by the Illinois Department of Human Services and is only open to license-funded treatment professionals in the state of Illinois.

This training is based on the Recovery Coach Academy (RCA). This curriculum provides a basic, introductory version of Recovery Coaching to meet the needs of those who want a general understanding of the recovery process to understand better and support the recovery of their loved ones, friends, and colleagues. Although the five-day curriculum is the preferred vehicle to learn about this very important role, we do realize that not everyone has the desire to become a recovery coach or the amount of time needed for that type of endeavor. We hope many of your questions about recovery and the recovery process will be answered. Much like the recovery journey, this training provides an emotionally rich experience combined with skills and techniques for real-life application. Whether you use it to improve your relationships with those seeking recovery or apply it to your recovery… you will be transformed.
