In honor of National Recovery Month, we wanted to discuss the many available recovery resources. Knowing what help is available and where to go to find it is critical to staying on the road to recovery.
Of course, we think the most critical resource is a recovery coach. They are trained to be supportive in the recovery process. Recovery coaches encourage the clients they are working with to seek out positive relationships and healthy hobbies. Above all, one of a recovery coach’s main goals is to help people realize recovery is entirely possible. But it will definitely take help and 100% focus.
Recovery resources can come in many different forms!
