Recovery Coach Basics Training

November 18, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

As we know all too well, Maine has been significantly impacted by addiction. Fortunately, however, many who’ve been affected are now on a path to recovery, and that likely includes some of our neighbors, family members, and colleagues. With that in mind, the Northeastern Workforce Development Board strongly believes that all organizations should understand recovery and how to support it. To that end, the board has partnered with Healthy Acadia to provide Recovery Coach Basics Training and you’re invited to attend. 

Participants of the course will learn to:

  • Define and increase fluency in the language of recovery
  • Build capacity to understand, support, and advocate for recovery
  • Learn about specific skill sets key to supporting recovery
  • Create a learning community to advance the recognition, acceptance and support recovery

Each county in the NWDB region will ultimately have four training dates, but the first round of training is specifically for the board’s partners as well as their partners.

The partner-specific course for Piscataquis County will be held September 30, 9 AM-2 PM.

The partner-specific course for Washington County will be held October 15, 9 AM-2 PM.

The partner-specific course for Hancock County will be held November 18, 9 AM-2 PM.

The partner-specific course for Aroostook and Penobscot Counties will be administered by the Bangor Area Recovery Network (BARN) and dates will be announced shortly. 

This and all other training will be conducted online unless otherwise specified.
