Description

What if a simple conversation could help someone take that first step toward recovery? CCAR, the developer of the most widely used and trusted curriculum for recovery coaches across the globe, has created a Beginner’s Guide to Coaching Recovery – an introductory class to help initiate and navigate a conversation with someone struggling with substance use. Family members, friends, and colleagues are often the first to notice the problem, but may not have the tools to broach the topic. This session will help you have that conversation.
