PARfessionals will serve as a model to implement a cohesive and comprehensive unification of mental health and addiction resources while ameliorating current health disparities within our communities.
PARfessionals mission is to provide affordable resources and training through education and skill development in a culturally sensitive manner to those that are interested in becoming state or nationally certified Addiction Recovery Coaches and Peer Recovery Support Specialists. We value the life experiences and educational pursuits that help define recovery and advocacy. By recognizing these as foundational tools we are able to challenge the stigma and barriers associated with addiction and mental health by encouraging and facilitating recovery for all with proficiency and compassion.
This course is designed to be comprehensive and prepare students for Peer Recovery Support or Addiction Recovery Coaching certification. It will cover background knowledge including history of the peer recovery movement, the knowledge needed to become a recovery coach, models of recovery, and ethics. It will also demonstrate how to create recovery partnerships, assess clients, create recovery and relapse prevention plans. The course will end with a practical discussion on finding a job as a recovery coach.
Those interested in becoming peer support specialists or recovery coaches within a behavioral health setting.
