In the first 365 days of your recovery journey, Recovery Coaching provides you a partner, mentor, spiritual guide, and support system to help you adjust to a new sober lifestyle. Through constant communication, you form a strong partnership with your Recovery Coach to work through any challenges you may face.
Mountainside’s Addiction Treatment Recovery Coaching program consists of five key components designed to help you reach your short and long-term recovery goals.
Peer-to-Peer Relationship: Working closely with your recovery coach, you will establish a personalized treatment plan, identify goals, and set a plan of action to achieve them. Through daily communication, your coach will be able to identify relapse behaviors and early warning signs, keeping you safe from relapse.
Connected Care Network: Throughout your recovery journey there may be additional clinical, medical, psychiatric, wellness, and legal services that you may need. Your recovery coach will help connect you with the appropriate service providers and keep in contact with them to ensure that you are advancing in your recovery.
Family Services: Healthy family dynamics and a strong support system at home are important, especially in early recovery. Your recovery coach will keep in contact with your loved ones, educating them on the best ways to support your recovery, as well as sharing your triumphs and successes.
Progress Assessments: Monthly wellness checks help you and your coach determine where you are progressing and where you need extra assistance. To keep you accountable, your coach will also conduct random toxicology screenings.
Recovery Resources: As part of Mountainside’s Addiction Treatment Recovery Coaching Program you have access to a wealth of knowledge and resources. Not only does your coach work closely with our clinical team to assess your progress, but they also work closely with our alumni program to ensure that you stay engaged in your recovery.
