Bring Recovery Coaching to Your Team, Department, or County

Recovery Coach Impact


PCA has been doing outreach to organizations and rural counties around Colorado the last 2 years and have been seeing increased interest and success in supporting networking in both areas.  Currently there are recovery coaches working in the following environments:

  • Residential Treatment Programs
  • Sober Housing
  • Re-entry Programs
  • Drug Courts and Family Courts
  • Veterans Specialty Courts
  • Emergency Departments
  • Angel Programs in Police Departments
  • LEAD Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion Programs
  • Hospitals (addressing High- Utilization issues) 
  • Community Recovery Centers
  • Faith Based Recovery Programs
  • MAT programs
  • First Responders

If we can find a way to connect any/all of these organizations in your city or county to collaborate on a training, it could be advantageous for everyone (and increase networking and city/county-wide strategic planning)

Overview of Private Training


 So you have an overview of what we do:

  1. We provide trainings and certifications for nationally recognized Recovery Coach curriculum in 2 phases.   
    1. Core CCAR Recovery Coach Academy- 30 hours Education/ CEU’s. We can deliver this training in 4 days, or 2 sets of 2 days. 
    2. 30 hours of Continuing CCAR Education such as Ethical Considerations and  Professionalism.

      It is recommended to choose the 1st option- then decide later whether to pursue the 2nd option.

  1. We provide IC & RC certification for all trainings. The Certificate can be applied to further credentialing, but stands alone as providing the basic education that satisfies national coaching standards- The Colorado Peer and Family Support (CPFS)  or a CCAR Recovery Coach Professional (RCP). 
  2. NAADAC Peer Credential (info here)  may be reimbursable from Private Insurances for peer services. This training fits those requirements.
  3. We offer TOT (Training of Trainers) for an additional fee for those who want their own training mechanism inside your county or your organization. It can provide a revenue stream, impact on attrition, and consistent contact with new volunteers and workforce.
  4. We contract to provide direct Recovery Coach Supervision- which differs from Clinical Supervision as the work is non-clinical. Or we provide  RC Supervision Trainings to assist you in developing your coaches'  continued skill growth. 
  5. We facilitate a 12-hour specific Recovery Coaching in Emergency Departments training. 

Contract Group Rates


General pricing is available on our website, however we negotiate organizational rates at a much better value. We offer the  4 day CCAR training at negotiated rates for groups from 8 to 20 coaches at a reduced rate per person. The same would apply for the Part 2 of the training to pursue accreditation. These costs do not include training space allocation.

On an individual basis the cost is between $650 and $1250 per person depending on the number of trainings, so the negotiated rates offer a great value. The regional networking benefits when approached will be a bonus.

Effective Peer Supervision Workshop


 PCA understands that peer professionals do better in a work situation with appropriate supervision. There  are at least 2 types of supervisors that we focus on with 2 different Peer Supervisor trainings- "Coachervision" - and "Effective Peer Supervision".  

1) CCAR's "Coachervision" is for peer to peer supervision and explores supporting a newer coach's growth. 

• Define expectations of Recovery Coach oversight
• Understand the complexity and intricacy of the Recovery Coach role
• Understand how organizational culture can support a Coachervision model
• Learn the importance of accountability for both the Coachervisor and  Recovery Coach
• How to support Recovery Coaches in professional settings 

2)  "Effective Peer Supervision" is an experiential training which provides insight into how best to integrate a peer into your team and how to include "removing barriers and promoting recovery" into the workplace on a daily basis. Designed for the existing supervisor who is adding peer coaches to the team for the first time,"Effective Peer Supervision" includes 6-9 months follow up and an online learning collaborative to promote peer integration and learning for the supervisor.
