Description

In recent years, the emphasis on building Recovery Oriented Systems of Care has led to profound changes in health care policies and criminal justice programs. The current opioid crisis and a greater awareness of the value of peer support has heightened a growing call for recovery coaches in a variety of settings. Peers are being hired to work in systems that may not yet have developed their own culture, commitment, and capacity to fully integrate peer recovery coaches.

The supervisor of Recovery Coaches serves in a pivotal position to provide thoughtful, intentional support to ensure the well-being of those seeking recovery while at the same time, support the integration of recovery principles and values within the organization. The Supervisors of Recovery Coaches training has been developed by the MA Bureau of Substance Abuse Services to help meet this need.  This training is a non-clinical model developed by people in recovery, recovery coaches, and people with supervisory experience, some with a clinical background.

This training is not intended to train participants to be supervisors. Participants are expected to already be supervisors or have supervisory skills training separate from this training. Supervisors with clinical supervision background will receive necessary knowledge and skills needed to support the non-clinical role of recovery coaches. It will provide a better understanding of the principles of recovery and the unique value of peer support.

This training is presented as a learning cycle consisting of three in person full day trainings, 2 in one week and then the third day 4 -6 weeks later. One small group coaching session will be offered between Days 2 & 3. Those who complete all three face-to-face training days are required to participate in two (2) Recovery Coach Learning Collaborative Webinars. Each one-hour engagement encourages further development of resources, boundary management tools and perspectives, as well as provides an opportunity to strengthen your Recovery Coach supervision skills and build your professional network. The intention is to create a supportive learning community of supervisors of peer recovery support services.

Completion of this training fulfills BSAS requirement for supervisors of recovery coaches.
