At Communities for Recovery we say, “Give to Keep.” As a trained Peer Recovery Coach, you can keep your sobriety strong by giving support and guidance to others who are newer to recovery.
Communities for Recovery is proud to provide a structured way for individuals who have lived experience in recovery to help others along their recovery journeys.
Our training is your first step towards becoming certified. You will learn how to draw from your own experiences and recovery best practices to be an effective coach and mentor. The training is offered several times throughout the year, on weekdays and weekends.
