Family Recovery Coach Training
Nationally Certified Family Recovery Coaching (NCFRC)
Our program in Family Recovery Coaching is comprehensive and will teach you, the professional coach, to be able to work with and assist the family during their difficult times. As much as an addict needs a coach, so does the family, and there are currently no programs available to teach you, the professional, how to deal with the family dynamics. Families of an addict are often confused themselves about addiction and where to turn with some of the issues that are going on within the family dynamic system. As a Therapist or Recovery Coach, you are trained to handle the addict but often the family is left alone to deal with their issues without help. They become abandoned once the loved one enters treatment or even left to coach themselves on what to do if the loved one refuses treatment. We are proud to offer you Nationally Certified Family Coach Training. Increase your resume and make yourself more marketable to treatment centers by learning Family Recovery Coaching.
Family Coaches deal with families that are confused and not sure what to do while their loved one is in treatment or even during the period where they are actively using. Often the family has been enabling the addict so long that when the addict goes into to treatment they feel lost and confused. Sometimes they even expect the addict to come home after 28 days or so ‘cured’ and ‘fixed’. As Professionals, we know that is not the case, but the family does not. There is a great need for Professional Family Coaches to pick up the pieces before, during and after their loved one gets help.
Up until now the best we were able to recommend to the family was to go to Al-anon or ‘family day’ at the drug and alcohol treatment facility. Now, The Addictions Academy can offer so much more, including a Certification in Family Recovery Coaching. As a Family Recovery Coach, you will be able to assist the families of the addicts that so desperately need assistance with a troubled loved one.
