We’re enthusiastic about offering this much-needed training for recovery coaches all over the country who have been asking for training on ethics but haven’t been able to readily find it.

Connecticut Community for Addiction Recovery (CCAR), a leading national nonprofit organization that promotes recovery from alcohol and other drug addiction through advocacy, education, and service, announced the launch of its newest training program to address the topic of ethical considerations for recovery coaches. While the issue of ethics has taken on increasing importance in recent years, there has been a lack of formal training available to professionals in the recovery-coaching field. It was this gap in the marketplace that prompted CCAR to develop a two-day training program designed specifically to meet the needs of this growing audience.

CCAR is launching its Ethics Training at a time when recovery coaches need it most. Recovery coaching as a peer-to-peer recovery support service has grown exponentially over the past four years. In fact, over 2,500 coaches have been trained using the nationally acclaimed CCAR Recovery Coach Academy©. Importantly, this two-day training program will not only provide participants with knowledge about ethical considerations, along with a Certificate of Achievement, but they’ll also receive credits toward meeting the Ethics Requirement of the Certified Addiction Recovery Coach (CARC) in Connecticut since it is approved by the Connecticut Certification Board (CCB) for twelve hours of Continuing Education Units.

The inaugural CCAR Ethics Training will be held on July 22-23, 2013 at the Connecticut Behavioral Health Partnership in Rocky Hill, Connecticut. The registration fee of $180 includes instruction, all training materials and lunch on both days. Jim Wuelfing, Consultant and CCAR Recovery Coach Academy© trainer, will conduct the training using a combination of presentations, small group work, role-play and a decision-making matrix. Several ethics topics will be addressed including defining the coaching service role and functions, coaching standards, issues of vulnerability, ethical decision-making, performance enhancement, and legal issues.

According to Phillip Valentine, Executive Director of CCAR™, “We’re enthusiastic about offering this much-needed training for recovery coaches all over the country who have been asking for training on ethics but haven’t been able to readily find it.” Mr. Valentine continued, “As a nationally-recognized organization that “puts a face on recovery” and provides recovery support services that inspire hope and healing, we felt an obligation to develop this training and bring it to the recovery coaching community nationwide as a way to provide valuable information, education, and knowledge on critical ethical considerations.”

Said Jim Wuelfing, Consultant and CCAR Recovery Coach Academy© Trainer, “For those who are providing recovery coaching services, this training offers an essential classroom curriculum based on the work of Bill White that is hands-on, interactive, and highly valuable.” Mr. Wuelfing continued, “In addition to gaining understanding about the most critical aspects of ethical considerations for recovery coaches, every participant will walk away with a personal action plan that enables him or her to put the training to immediate and good use.”
