Developed by the Connecticut Community for Addiction Recovery (CCAR), the CCAR Recovery Coach Academy at COA is a week-long training opportunity designed for those interested in serving as a recovery coach. It is the first peer-based recovery coaching and training program designed for people interested in guiding individuals into and through long-term recovery from alcohol and/or drug addiction. The next scheduled training dates are:

Dates: Sunday, November 11th, 2018, Mon-Fri 6:30-9:30 and Saturday,

LocationSt Charles Borromeo RC Church 176 Stagecoach Rd, Sickerville

A CCAR Recovery Coach is anyone interested in promoting recovery by removing barriers & obstacles to recovery and serving as a personal guide & mentor for people seeking or already in recovery. It is invaluable for anyone – counselors, teachers, health care professionals, volunteers, group leaders, community activists, parents, spouses and other family members – working or living with addiction sufferers.

This is a practical, results-oriented training that will provide participants a comprehensive overview of the purpose and tasks of a recovery coach and will explain the various roles played by a recovery coach. The program will provide participants with the tools & resources most useful in providing recovery support services. It will also teach skills to access vital recovery resources within the community.

Because it is founded on a philosophy of “meeting your addict where they’re at”, this program teaches how to support the recovery of virtually anyone challenged by addiction. Participants will be able to:

  • Describe the roles and functions of a recovery coach
  • List the components, core values and guiding principles of recovery
  • Build skills to enhance relationships
  • Discuss co-occurring disorders and medicated assisted recovery
  • Describe stages of change and their applications
  • Experience wellness planning
  • Practice newly acquired skills

The instructors for this program are Michele Perez and Ed Brazell.  Both have completed the CCAR Recovery Coach Academy and have been trained by CCAR to train Recovery Coaches.

More than 5,000 people across the U.S. have taken this highly regarded training program since 2008 and it is also being offered in selected countries overseas, including the U.K. To learn more about COA-trained Recovery Coaches and how they are putting their skills to use, click here.

It’s an even greater savings off the CCAR price – if you take the identical training at CCAR in Connecticut or at other facilities across the U.S., you will pay $850.

Let's face it addiction and alcoholism is one of the top issues affecting our lives today.  Many of our loved ones are hiding their substance use because of stigma from their families and their employers.  The stats say there are 21 million folks struggling with addiction today.

Each day we are losing our loved ones at an average of 241 to alcoholism and 123 to overdoses.

But THERE is HOPE.  There is RECOVERY.  Everyday families are beating it.  This is were we come in.  Those of us that have gone through this know how hard it is to find help.  The:

  • Confusion of what to do next.
  • What's right for our family.
  • Are there any GOOD rehabs.
  • What services are there.
  • Is there anyone that cares.

Silent Epidemic has been helping mend the hurt, frustration and tragedy that comes when our families are struggling.  Families are torn apart by the never-ending darkness of addiction and alcoholism.

We have searched and searched for a solution to the darkness and was surprised to learn that we all can have a role in the solution.  


 When we get help we are a force to recon with.  It starts with us.  We need to heal before we can help others heal.

You matter

more than you'll every know.

Recovery is so beautiful

It is so easy to get lost and forget that we are important, in spite of our addiction we are loved.
