Executive Coaching for Recovering Leaders!
The focus of recovery coaching is to keep the client sober and restore a sense of functionality to their life.
Recovery coaching is about preventing relapse, providing structure and a sense of safety to protect the client’s fragile new-found sobriety. After a 30-90 day stay in a treatment center, some find it difficult to adjust to life outside of the safe environment of a treatment center.
It maybe difficult to find a 12-step program, to engage a sponsor, to grasp the concept of a higher power, to adapt to a ritual of eliminating the need for drugs, alcohol, gambling or compulsive sex in their lives. Some clients have to return to the workplace, fearing the environment that possibly triggered their addiction in the first place. So recovering clients need more focused attention and direction.
This is where recovery coaching comes in.
A Few Statistics about Recovery Coaching
- 80% of people leaving an addiction treatment center relapse within the first year after discharge
- Working with a recovery coach can reduce the likelihood of relapse during this crucial period
- Recovery coaching is this missing link, bridging the gap between an individual leaving a treatment center and maintaining long term sobriety
