More and more the population of persons seeking recovery from an addiction is getting younger and younger. Coaches who can speak the language of a younger generation can greatly impact their access to sustained long term recovery.
CART has developed the CCAR Recovery Coach Academy© for Young Adults to enhance the skills of those individuals who will be supporting young adults on their recovery journey. We believe this ground-breaking training program is one of the best available for anyone interested in recovery coaching young people. This course will provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary to guide and mentor others through their own recovery process and is open to everyone – people in recovery, family members, friends and allies. Much like the journey of recovery, this training offers a transformational experience. This innovative new training will be delivered as three days live and two days online.
