What is a Recovery Coach, and How Can They Help Me?

What is a Recovery Coach?

If you are struggling with addiction, a recovery coach can help you a lot. Designed to help people regain control of their lives and overcome addiction, recovery coaching is a complementary or alternative option to traditional rehabilitation, designed to work in conjunction with modern life.

Many people struggle with the idea of stepping away from their normal responsibilities and commitments to enter a residential rehabilitation facility. Other times, they may fail after leaving due to the ‘culture shock’ of stepping back into ‘normal’ life after treatment. If you are busy with work, life and family, and want to work through your drug use issue in a modern, private way then recovery coaches are a great option.

How Can a Recovery Coach Help?

Some ways in which a personal recovery coach can help you in rehab include:

  • Assist in implementing harm reduction measures
  • Help to form a plan of action when you decide to stop using drugs
  • Provide support and accountability
  • Assist patients to navigate the medical system
  • Direct patients to the right resources to help them with quick recovery
  • Provide the correct information for family support
  • Connect you to the right medical therapists and health professionals


A recovery coach is one of the most valuable professionals you engage with on your path to recovery. When people picture ‘rehab’, they often visualise live-in facilities and can feel intimidated by it because it can feel like becoming ‘locked up’ and relinquishing control. Recovery coaching offers an alternative for such situations.
