Recovery Coaching

A Partnership for Your Recovery Journey

The Recovery Coaching program at the Turning Point Center of Central Vermont is designed to help people who have experienced problems as a result of drugs and alcohol to find, maintain, and enhance their recovery through peer support, sober recreation, and educational opportunities. Together we can do what we could not do alone.

Could a Recovery Coach help?

  • Do you think drugs and/or alcohol could be causing problems in your life?
  • Are people getting on your case about your drug and/or alcohol use?
  • Is your life out of control?
  • Feeling overwhelmed, and want someone to talk to?

How does a Recovery Coach Help?

A Recovery Coach listens to you, helps you figure out what to do, and supports your choices. Together, you and your coach explore options that will help you succeed in your recovery.

A Recovery Coach will:

  • Assist you in making a plan to improve your life.
  • Focus on the present and the future (not the past).
  • Support and encourage you to follow your chosen path to recovery.
  • Keep conversations confidential.

Recovery Coaching helps even if you have a sponsor or counselor.

Each helps you in a different way:

  • A counselor provides clinical help.
  • A 12-step sponsor guides you through the steps of a recovery fellowship.
  • Recovery Coaches have personal experience with recovery, and help you make positive changes in your life.

A Recovery Coach does not:

  • Diagnose or treat addictions.
  • Judge.
  • Tell you what to do.
