Working Fields is seeking Recovery Coaches for part-time recovery coaching assignments in Chittenden and Franklin Counties. Please apply to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Working Fields uses a recovery coaching model to provide support to our associates. For associates not in recovery, the recovery coach functions as a life coach using the same approach. So, what is it?
- Recovery coaching is one of the support systems an individual can use to help navigate the days of early recovery or other life challenges. A recovery coach's primary purpose is to create a supportive environment around an individual’s personal recovery or life plan.
- Coaches help develop a personal plan by using motivational interviewing skills and conducting an assessment of various domains of a person’s recovery. These domains include physical, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing along with basic life issues such as housing, employment, financial, transportation, food and staples, health insurance, and any other area that may be a concern to a person’s recovery.
- A coach does not counsel or direct but rather provides support and helps the person stay accountable to their plan. A coach also helps refer or connect individuals to resources in the community that will be helpful to address specific needs.
In the end, a recovery coach provides a level of support that gives an individual a better chance of success in early recovery and overcoming life challenges. APPLY NOW
