We were proud to launch our Recovery Coach program in 2020.

Recovery Coaches focus closely on the individual needs of each participant, taking the time to build strong rapport and develop a deep understanding of that person’s circumstances.

Participants set their own goals and choose which community settings they wish to engage with.
