Initial Training

Developed by Ray Baker, MD

The 40-hour initial training is delivered online and
in-person to groups of 12-24 trainees. The curriculum includes necessary knowledge on addiction, types of treatment, varieties of recovery pathways, cultural diversity, boundaries, working with families, trauma-informed care and post-traumatic growth.


In addition, trainees learn all essential recovery coach competencies and the recovery coaching code of ethics. Training includes didactic teaching, individual and group exercises, discussions, coaching skills role-playing, homework reading assignments and community-based resource-finding activities.


Since recovery coaching is so new, credentialing and certification are still evolving. As a result, requirements for accreditation, maintenance of accreditation and levels of credentialing will change. Recovery Coaches Alberta will adapt the training requirements accordingly
