Recovery Coaching Services for XYZ Clinic Clients
A Positive Option is the answer to many of life’s problems for many of your clients that need more comprehensive addiction services. XYZ Clinic will have more successful treatment outcomes and increase client retention rates by providing an “ideal” continuum of care.
What is Recovery Coaching ? AN INTEGRATED COMPONENT OF A COMPREHENSIVE AN ADDICTION TREATMENT PROGRAM THAT HELP CLIENTS TO GAIN ACCESS TO NEEDED RESOURCES, SERVICES, OR SUPPORTS THAT WILL HELP THEM ACHIEVE PERSONAL RECOVERY FROM THEIR ADDICTION. IT IS NOT THERAPY -THOSE WHO ARE PRIMARILY SEEKING RELIEF FROM EMOTIONAL OR PSYCHOLOGICAL PAIN. COACHING FOCUSES ON THE PRESENT AND FUTURE WHILE THERAPY FOCUSES PRIMARILY ON THE PAST. IN THERAPY THE CONCERN IS HOW UNRESOLVED ISSUES ARE IMPACTING THE PRESENT. IN COACHING THE QUESTION IS WHAT CAN BE DONE TODAY TO MOVE THE CLIENT FORWARD TOWARD THEIR GOALS AND THE REALIZATION OF THEIR VISION. COUNSELING REFERS TO GIVING ADVICE WHICH COACHES DO NOT. COUNSELING IMPLIES A “ONE-UP” RELATIONSHIP WHERE THE COUNSELOR IS THE EXPERT, WHEREAS THE COACH IS NEITHER EXPERT NOR AUTHORITY NOR HEALER; RATHER, THE CLIENT IS THE EXPERT ABOUT HIS OR HER LIFE. COACHING IS BASED ON PARTNERSHIP WHILE COUNSELORS/MD’S, HAVE EXPERT KNOWLEDGE THAT THEY IMPART IN THE FORM OF ADVICE, DIAGNOSIS, OR PROVIDING A SOLUTION. A COACH’S JOB IS TO GET THE CLIENT TO THINK! COACHES RARELY GIVE ADVICE. WE DON’T DIAGNOSE. INSTEAD, WE WORK WITH YOU TO COME UP WITH YOUR OWN SOLUTIONS, TO MAKE YOUR OWN CHOICES, AND WE SUPPORT YOU TO STAY ON TRACK AND TAKE THE ACTIONS THAT BRING ABOUT TRANSFORMATION.

Access to and receipt of a comprehensive array of services has been shown to improve engagement, retention, and treatment outcomes for clients receiving recovery coaching.
Findings in addiction treatment research over the past 30 years indicates that clients have better treatment outcomes the longer they stay engaged in treatment.
PROJECT SCHEDULE/BUDGET After XYZ 12-week outpatient program, we will create a system of care that keeps clients actively engaged until they have mastered the skills and acquired the inner resource capital to sustain their recovery. Because most clients will relapse within three to six months after completing a single episode of treatment, it is critical to keep them engaged in a recovery coaching for at least six months to one year after completing.
Provides recovery coaching for $90 hourly that includes administrative fees and E-mail/Online/Telephonic services for $75 hourly. This pricing structure was chosen because it is within the coaching industry "sliding scale" range. Budgeting is flexible in order to meet your clients where they are at and may be negotiated based on your needs due to you being a not for profit. For example, others have contracted with us to provide 6 months of recovery coaching to their clients for a rate of $50 per recovery coaching session and $25 for a reauthorized extension for an additional 8 weeks. Telephonic/On-line coaching has been contracted at a 12 week flat rate of $150 per client and group recovery coaching at a rate of $15 per group
Conclusion: One of the biggest obstacles for alcoholics/addicts, persons living with AIDS, and consumers with mental illnesses to overcome is the shame they carry inside. This shame is compounded by societal silence, which the client struggling with alcoholism, drug addiction, sexual problems, and mental health disorders, interprets as judgment against them. Your clients need to feel empowered and to have another choice for a successful recovery outcome. A Positive Option is that choice ! Any Questions??
