Recovery Coaching in Justice Settings
We are excited to share this training designed for Recovery Coaches working within Justice Settings. When given the opportunity to work in our own Department of Correction setting here in CT, we eagerly jumped at the chance. People who have faced jail time, or incarceration, or any involvement within these settings have multiple barriers to overcome, so why not provide recovery coaches who can assist in navigating those barriers while providing support in their recovery journey, There is no better setting to serve as recovery coaches. Many of our coaches know these systems well. The best resources for navigating these systems are people who have used them. This is where our lived experiences will serve us, two-fold. Not only do we get to share what we know, we get to share who we are, in Recovery.Our goal is to prepare you for working within any of these settings.
