Recovery Coaching

Recovery coaching is a core component of Westport House – encouraging and supporting the development of the day-to-day skills necessary to live successfully in recovery.

Recovery coaching goes beyond therapy and 12-step sponsorship. A good recovery coach is a leader, a mentor, a partner, a counselor, a spiritual guide and a cheerleader. Recovery coaches, aka “case managers,” at Westport House are passionate members of the 12-step recovery community, they exemplify what it means to “live in recovery”; acting as role models that clients can look up to and guide them through the challenges of early recovery.

At Westport House, coaches are responsible for holding clients accountable, improving their performance in all areas, and teaching them (in practical terms) how to stay sober and enjoy life. Our coaches are onsite everyday throughout the week and formally meet individually with each of their clients at least once a week, and many other times informally. They listen and contribute observations and questions, provide a road map for success and assist the client with achieving their desired goals.
