The Vermont Recovery Coach Training is an evidence-based training program designed to strengthen Vermont’s recovery support workforce in the fields of addiction and mental health, providing a valuable service for people in recovery.
Recovery coaches play a crucial role in supporting people in maintaining their recovery by helping them find strategies to achieve their goals by bringing them from where they are now to where they want to be. Coaches are an important resource in helping to remove personal and environmental obstacles to recovery by forging links for individuals to the recovery community and serving as a guide and mentor in the management of personal and family recovery.
Over the past 10 years, we have trained more than 300 coaches. Our coaches include volunteers, peer workers, clinicians, social workers, community leaders and other individuals dedicated to helping support Vermonters in recovery from substance use disorder.
