In spite of the crucial role recovery coaches play in our society, most people still don’t know what a Certified Recovery Coach actually does. You can think of a Certified Recovery Coach as a sober coach – someone who has the necessary knowledge and skills to help people get rid of their addictions. This is a professional who guides and supports a person in recovering from addiction and preventing relapses.
We, at SALS Houses, have been helping people to recover from their addictions and stay sober for years now. From our own experience as well as the results of numerous scientific studies, we can confirm that the rate of relapse for people in the first year of recovery can go as high as 65 percent. The odds are stacked against the person who tries to recover without any expert guidance, sadly. That is why Certified Recovery Coaches are needed.
Our recovery coaches strive to be actively involved in the lives of the recovering addicts. They do so to prevent any relapse from taking place. Every life coach at SALS Houses acts as a friend, philosopher and coach.

If you are a recovering addict, you know how hard the struggle is. You’ve gone through rehab, counseling and support groups. You have managed to be sober for a significant duration.

You’ve been trying your best to avoid these situations and often overcome the temptations of the triggers through sheer will-power. The constant struggle has worn you out. You feel depressed, anxious and stressed out.
