Get A Recovery Coach

Recovery Coaches provide support, guidance, and encouragement to build strong recovery and a support network.  We'll help you build community connections, be reunified with family, and get employment, housing, and other needed assistance.

Recovery Coaches:

  • Identify your strengths and personal attributes

  • Outline life goals and create a wellness plan

  • Look at legal, familial, and economic issues

  • Help you earn a GED, diploma, or degree

  • Improve financial education and credit score

  • Provide recovery follow-up for up to 3 years

  • Use recovery-oriented employment services to build your resume, teach interview skills, job search, or start a business

Coaches are mobile and can travel to emergency rooms, businesses, homes, and schools — wherever they are needed.

If you need help finding treatment, visit our FIND HELP page for information about New Hampshire based treatment facilities.
We can provide supported referrals and advocacy to find treatment, sign you up for health insurance if you have none, and provide transportation to detox facilities and residential treatment.

Once accredited, Licensed Alcohol & Drug Counselors (LADCs) will conduct walk-in assessments, individual, group, and family counseling, and create treatment plans and recovery goal plans.

Finding treatment can be a frustrating process - don’t give up. Let us help you get the help you need.

Telephone Support Check-ins

Volunteers conduct daily, weekly, and monthly phone check-ins to see how things are going, let you know about recovery events and volunteer opportunities, re-connect you to community supports, and help you grow your recovery network.  

We want you to feel a sense of belonging and that you are part of a larger community - because we have your back. Checks-ins serve as an additional support to help keep your recovery strong in those moments you might need a little extra encouragement.
