Priority will be given to those supervisors who have taken Recovery Coach Academy prior to application for Recovery Coach Supervisor Professional Practice Training.
As of Monday September 2nd, 2019 Recovery Coach Academy is a prerequisite for Recovery Coach Supervisor Professional Practice Training.
Please read carefully before applying for the RC Supervisor Professional Practice Training
The Recovery Coach Supervisor Professional Practice Training and required pre-requisite completion of the 5-Day Recovery Coach Academy provide a solid foundation for clinicians, counselors and experienced Recovery Coaches employed as or seeking employment as Recovery Coach Supervisors. As the peer workforce grows, BSAS continues to provide quality training, practice and orientation sessions to behavioral health organizations seeking to provide or currently delivering Recovery Coaching Services.
The Bureau of Substance Addiction Services has been offering the Recovery Coach Supervisor Professional Practice Training since 2016. To date it has trained 353 supervisors in MA. It has been designed with clinicians in mind and with sensitivity to the work schedules required of this workforce. Therefore it is delivered as three day training:
This is then followed up by 2 webinars over the next 1.5 months, titled "Fidelity to the Peer Model & Advocacy".
The supervisor training requires that all participants take the 5 day Recovery Coach Academy (RCA), as a pre-requisite to acceptance into the RC supervisor training. We recognize that this may be a challenge for some and have approved new 5-Day RCA courses that offer alternatives to the traditional on-week course structure. Based on the past 3 years of experience and feedback from recovery coaches and recovery coach supervisors, the best solution to ensure quality and fidelity to the peer model is that all supervisors of recovery coaches also take the RCA.
