  • Comprehensive transitional care for discharges from medical and behavioral health inpatient treatment.
  • Member and family education to increase understanding and encouragement of the member assuming an active role in managing their health.

Recovery Coaching

Recovery Coaching is a form of strength-based support for persons in or seeking recovery from alcohol and other drugs. It is a partnership where the person in or seeking recovery self-directs their recovery while the coach provides expertise in supporting successful change.

Recovery coaches support any positive change, helping persons coming home from treatment to avoid relapse, build community support for recovery, or work on life goals not related to substance use, such as relationships, work, education, etc.
