About the Course:
The recent growth in peer-based recovery support services as an adjunct and alternative to addiction treatment has created heightened ambiguity about the demarcation of responsibilities across three roles: 1) voluntary service roles within communities of recovery, e.g., the role of the sponsor in Twelve-Step programs, 2) the roles of clinically focused addiction treatment specialists (e.g., certified addiction counselors, psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers), and 3) the roles of paid and volunteer recovery support specialists (e.g., recovery coaches, personal recovery assistants) working within addiction treatment institutions and free-standing recovery advocacy/support organizations. The purpose of this paper is to enhance understanding of the new recovery support roles by comparing and contrasting these three service roles.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, Sponsor, Recovery Coach, Addiction Counselor: The Importance of Role Clarity and Role Integrity created by William L. White
Journal/Publisher:Perspectives on Peer-based Recovery Support Services
