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

  • Provide recovery follow-up for up to 3 years

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

Looking for residential treatment? Visit our FIND HELP page.

Reality Check provides Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) for people choosing this pathway for their recovery. Both group and individual counseling is required once each per week for anyone using MAT. Licensed Alcohol & Drug Counselors conduct assessments, do individual, group, and family counseling, and create treatment plans and recovery goal plans.

Supported referrals to residential treatment are also provided. We can help sign you up for health insurance and provide transportation to detox facilities and residential treatment.

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.
