What is a Nationally Certified Recovery Coach?

A Nationally Certified Recovery Coach is a life coach, a person with coaching skills, who has had extensive training in the addiction recovery process and recovery support. A Recovery Coach will know the systems and methods that have been successful in the past to make the future for their clients brighter.

How will a Recovery Coach work with me?

 

  • A recovery coach will guide you through, a complicated process, to gain health, wellness, and better relationships. 
     

  • A recovery coach will accelerate your progress in recovery, giving you the tools for greater focus and awareness in choices, actions, and responsibility
     

  • A recovery coach will have the knowledge, education, and experience to get from the intervention stage through to the productive life stage and every step in between.
     

  • A recovery coach will be concentrating on where you are now and what you are willing to do to enjoy a better tomorrow.
     

  • A recovery coach will know how to walk you through hard-hitting cravings, reduce relapses by spotting the signs before a relapse occurs and accompany you to treatment and recovery-related activities.
     

  • A recovery coach will have the skills and experience needed to help you navigate treatment.
     

  • A recovery coach will be knowledgeable, motivated, and engaging, helping keep your spirits up.

 

What is the Role of a Recovery Coach?

 

  • Recovery Coaches are trained professionals, with the tools and expertise to make transitioning from addiction to recovery possible.
     

  • Recovery Coaches use a model similar to harm reduction and motivational therapy. This approach encourages positive actions designed to help you achieve a successful recovery.  
     

  • To be clear a Recovery Coach is not a therapist, sponsor, or peer. 
     

FYI: a sober coach is different from a Recovery Coach. A sober coach works only as a back-up if a person needs support at the moment. A sponsor is performing a service to help with a 12-step program and the guideline that go with that program.

David knows, first hand, addiction and the road to recovery.

David, the Life Recovery Coach, is an expert in both. He’s been on one side or the other of the addiction and recovery predicament for 50 years. As a Nationally Certified Intervention Professional and a Nationally Certified Recovery Coach he has answers. He has spoken his message to tens of thousands of people around the country in the rooms of recovery meetings, conventions, and schools. He has helped those in all walks of life and all ages, from kids in junior high school to old-timers in recovery meetings and he can help you too.

 

Here’s the fact: untreated addiction has only three possible outcomes: jails, institutions, or death. If you’re lucky, your bottom won’t be six feet under, but the alternatives suck too, David has lived through both. 

 

Through his troubled past riddled with opioid addiction, millions lost through compulsive gambling, and a federal prison sentence; David Marion has a riveting story that shows one can return from the depths of addiction to lead a life of prosperity by helping other people.

David Marion knows the excuses.
He has used them all at one time or another.

 

  • If it gets really bad, I’ll quit.

  • Everyone else does it.

  • You’d do it too if you had my life.

  • I’m more exciting and outgoing when I do.

  • I’m not hurting anyone. 

  • No one can help me.

  • I’m never going to amount to anything anyway.

  • This is who I am, and I’m ok with it.

  • No one understands me.

  • I can stop whenever I want.

  • I deserve this escape.

  • It makes me better/happier.

  • I’m not as bad as him/her, now they have a problem.

  • It’s not causing consequences in my life.

David Marion knows the consequences and when it’s time to quit. Do you?

  2. Have you suffered a loss of a job or a relationship?
