Grief recovery for those who have lost a loved one due to substance use.

Grief Recovery After Substance Passing (GRASP) was created to offer understanding, compassion, and support for those who have lost someone they love through addiction and overdose

Anyone who has lost a loved one through substance use knows that society treats this loss differently than a death from any other cause.

What is a Peer Recovery Coach?

Seven business people holding white cards with letters to assemble the word SUPPORT on textured wooden desk. Conceptual of teamwork, cooperation and customer service.

A Peer Recovery Coach works to remove barriers and obstacles to recovery by serving as a personal guide. Recovery Coaches enter into an ongoing relationship that helps folks who are in recovery or who are considering recovery from substance use disorders to produce extraordinary results in their lives, careers, businesses, or organizations.  Recovery Coaches are people in long term recovery.

Through the process of Recovery Coaching, you will deepen your learning, improve your performance, and enhance your quality of life. In each meeting with your Coach, you will choose the focus of conversation, while the coach listens and contributes observations and questions. This interaction will create clarity and move you toward action. Recovery Coaching will accelerate your progress in recovery by providing greater focus and awareness of choices, actions, and responsibility. Coaching concentrates on where you are now and what you are willing to do to enjoy a better tomorrow.

Coaches:

•  Affirm that there is innate health and wellness in you as a person in recovery.

•  Believe that you are creative and resourceful.

•  Do not promote or endorse any single or particular way of achieving or maintaining  sobriety, abstinence, or serenity or of reducing suffering from  substance use disorders.

•  Focus is on coaching you to create and sustain a great and meaningful life. Use a  strengths-based approach—we will help you find and utilize your  values, assets, and  strengths while we coach you to success.
