What is Recovery Coaching?

According to CCAR, "A Recovery Coach promotes recovery and removes barriers and obstacles to recovery, serving as a personal guide and mentor." Our certified Recovery Coaches can help you generate strategies, stay motivated, and connect to resources to help your recovery. Recovery Coaching is available for students in recovery from substance use disorder, those considering recovery, and those impacted by addiction in their families.

Virtual Recovery Coaching is available now! Email hollifm@email.sc.edu for the link or to schedule an appointment. In person appointments may be available this fall, based on the availability of appropriate space and the use of face coverings and physical distancing measures.
