COACHING FOR THE FUTURE IN RECOVERY 

 

Our job at Right Path is to reassure residents that they can have ambitions and that they can still live their dream. Right Path provides educational and job support every week. We approach each person as an individual and can assist them in writing a resume or refining a college application. After addiction, we believe that every person will achieve success if they don't let their disease rush them. Addiction is always in a hurry, but our coaches can point to the benefits and pit-falls of rushing into too much work or school. Coaches can help you slow down and allow for each step of the recovery process to take hold. Then, residents can build and expand on their own meaningful successes.

 
SUPPORT FOR SCHOOL OR WORK

Our coaches help you evaluate your study habits, learn to use tutors, help you become a researcher of life, and manage your time while not losing sight of your priorities. Perhaps the most important thing a coaches does is give you the courage to be you.

We can also help our residents gain employment part or full-time. We have a broad range of corporations both large and small in this area and can help a resident find the right fit. For those residents who are eager to work right away, there are many part-time opportunities for them and their coach will be there for them to help support them in finding the right job while always keeping their recovery in first place.

VOLUNTEER

If you are not working, volunteer work is important for your recovery. The Corporation for National and Community Service says that, "volunteering improves psychological and physical health." Volunteers feel a sense of purpose while developing networks that, in turn, can distract or directly support them when stressed. Work of any kind is empowering.

WORK OPPORTUNITIES

Right Path is on the Connecticut coast which means there are plenty of opportunities for work. 

Professionals will also find it relatively easy to obtain work in their chosen career field. We are a less then 30 minute commute to New Haven, Middletown or New London; we are under one hour to Stamford and Hartford.

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.
