Supervision - In today’s climate of increased substance use and accidental substance related deaths, the Recovery field is rapidly growing. Many organizations across the country are taking action to increase capacity so that these and all related issues may be addressed. Massachusetts is one of the states that are leading the way as they implement peer services across the continuum of care.
From the emergency room to detox, from the residential program to outpatient and beyond, the implementation of Recovery Coaching is becoming increasingly common and in demand.
The success of the recovery coach is subject to the level of support and guidance the coach receives. While coaches work with individuals seeking to engage in, achieve and/or maintain their recovery, there are a host of unmet challenges that are to be uncovered and acknowledged. In order to properly support a recoveree, it behooves the recovery coach to be participating in peer supervision. This collaboration directly benefits the recoveree as an alternate perspective can be instrumental both in supporting and maintaining an individual’s recovery as well as safety. Recovery coaches often need such indispensable perspectives in order to provide appropriate as well as ethical support to the recoveree.
Recovery is a non-linear process. Individuals in early recovery often uncover a multitude of challenges that they didn’t even know were there. Continuous engagement, re-positioning, and a strengths based focus are key to their recovery. This is where peer supervision becomes an invaluable relationship in supporting the recovery process.
