Help Others Recover From Addiction
Peer Recovery Coaches use their experiences with personal recovery to offer hope, encouragement and reassurance to the people served. Much of this support is offered in a coaching/mentoring manner, where the recovery coach cultivates and secures a connection with the person served, while teaching personal responsibility and serving as a mentor and role model on the recovery and wellness process.
We’re currently seeking recovery coaches for our Addiction Medicine program. This program offers counseling with a Certified Addiction Counselor (CAADC) through an online video connection similar to FaceTime or Skype. This service allows individuals to get professional service when they may not be able to travel to one of our clinics or have any other treatment services available where they live.
To help support individual and group counseling with the CAADC therapist, we offer local peer recovery coaches who can provide a personal connection and encouragement to these individuals. Although our peer recovery coaches currently work with therapists in our Traverse City Clinic, the position requires recovery coaches to be in the field meeting with clients throughout the state.
- Must possess a High School Diploma or GED
- Life experience that allows you to identify as a peer recovery coach and have at least 18 months in recovery
- Valid Michigan driver’s license and access to transportation for the performance of job duties
- See job description for additional position requirements as well as duties and responsibilities
