Collective Wellness Addiction Counselling
works with individuals and groups and offers a variety of services, including recovery counselling, relapse prevention,
educational workshops, harm reduction, comprehensive assessment, community referrals, after care (transition from treatment), and consultation.
A recovery coach facilitates the actions necessary to aide an individual in remaining free from drugs, alcohol and other self-harming actions or addictions.
An aspect of the work that a recovery coach should also do is to support a client through life’s every day challenges, such as returning to work or finding a new job; reconnecting with friends or family; establishing healthier routines and tools; and, outlining new goals for the life this individual chooses for him or herself.
Alcoholism, drug dependence and addiction, known as substance use disorders, are complex problems. People with these disorders once were thought to have a “defective character”, or “moral weakness”; some people mistakenly still believe that.
However, most scientists and medical researchers now consider dependence on alcohol or drugs to be a long-term illness like diabetes. Most people who drink alcohol drink very little,
and many people can stop taking drugs without struggle. However, some people develop substance use disorder & use of alcohol or drugs that is compulsive or dangerous (or both).
