Recovery Coaches work with the strengths of each of our residents. By continuing to work with residents on a daily basis to establish habits and thinking patterns that encourage and reinforce a healthier recovery lifestyle, they also help residents connect with the local recovery community to find the resources they need to support their sobriety. Recovery coaches understand that sometimes people focus on just outcomes instead of remaining present enough to grow in the moment. While that is certainly important, coaches ask residents to be mindful and focus on what they can control — the process and not the outcome.


We welcome coaches from Mountainside, Aware Recovery and Recovery Services of Project Courage to work with our residents. We collaborate and coordinate with them. We can make a room available for private conversations. 


Our recovery coaches are highly trained and certified. Working closely with residents in our sober living, they are the heartbeat of our houses. They are dedicated to our residents on a one to one basis and serve with a set of binding ethics. Every resident is greeted with open arms so they understand we are available, day or night to help you sort through recovery.


Following clinical recommendations,  recovery coaches will sit with you to search for the best resources for treatment or to engage in other activities that will enrich your recovery life: recreation, education, budgeting or finding a better job. We will work with you to teach you how to solve recovery oriented issues but we are not like a case manager.  You, your family, your coach and your therapist will set up a transition plan that works for you and your recovery.

Every resident is assigned a recovery coach when they enter our sober living house. Our coaches are excited about recovery. Here are just a few examples of what one of our coaches can do for you:

  • Be available, day or night. Our recovery coaches meet you where you are to help you sort through your recovery.

  • Talk about accountability. A recovery coach will check in with you about your dreams and what you say you will do to reach for them. They conduct random drug testing.

  • With you, they will search out the best resources to enrich your recovery life: recreation, education or finding a better job.

After rehab, in-home care, and/or extended care, we think sober living is the next logical step toward recovery life. From SAMHSA research, we offer the four pillars of recovery: (1) community, (some life skill support,) (2) mental and physical wellness; including membership at the gym and yoga studio, an emphasis on whole food in shared evening meals, and professional therapy delivered from the surrounding community, (3) finding purpose in work or school and (4) re-integrating into a re-structured family dynamic or a new home. We welcome those with or without a history of treatment and understand that a whole - person - healing is needed to allow sustainable recovery to begin.
