This article is part of Perspectives on Peer-based Recovery Support Services, the third in a series of monographs on recovery management published by the Great Lakes Addiction Technology Transfer Center.
There are two intended audiences for these discussions: individuals who are in positions of responsibility for the planning, implementation, and supervision of peer-based recovery support services and individuals who are working in either paid or volunteer roles as recovery coaches. This paper is designed to be adapted for use in the training of recovery coaches and their supervisors. The paper will remain in the public domain and may be adapted as a training aid or used without request by other recovery support organizations as a reading resource. We encourage the use of the decision-making model and the ethical case studies in the paper in the orientation and training of recovery coaches.
