Ethical Considerations in Recovery Coaching, as a peer-to-peer recovery support service, come up often on the job and in discussion amongst professional circles, yet formal training on this topic is lacking. This three-day workshop addresses the need, and will cover topics, including:

  • Defining the coaching service role and functions
  • Coaching standards
  • Issues of vulnerability
  • Ethical decision-making
  • Performance enhancement
  • Legal issues… and more!

Recovery Coach participants will learn and understand the following:


  • How to “stay in your lane” as a recovery coach
  • Issues around relationship boundaries and role clarity
  • The ethical decision-making process
  • How to develop guidelines for ethical decisions – Assess, Plan, Implement, Evaluate
  • Confidentiality issues with respect to treatment and other healthcare providers, and non-treatment organizations
