CCAR's Recovery Coach Academy has become the most sought after training programs for recovery coaches, those who provide Peer Support Services to those in or seeking recovery from an addiction to alcohol and/or other drugs, or anyone who just simply wants to understand more about the recovery process.
While each course can be taken independently of the other, it is recommended that the Recovery Coach Academy or Recovery Coaching Basics be completed first to gain a full understanding of our recovery coach framework.
Each training does provide credit good towards obtaining certification in your home state. While we are accepted nationally at most certification boards including IC&RC Member boards, we do encourage new participants to check with their local board prior to signing up for any course If you need information from CCAR to present to them for approval (agenda, breakdown of hours, etc.) please email us.
Trainings are offered in Connecticut, and in many other states by Recovery Coach Professional Facilitators.
