This training will provide you with the strategies for cultural competence, effective communication, motivational enhancement, and crisis intervention. Emphasis is placed on the skills needed to link people in recovery to needed supports within the community. Recovery Coaches are an important member of a person’s recovery support network, providing motivation, encouragement, and support during difficult emotional states. This program is intended upon completion to prepare students to apply to the Massachusetts Board of Substance Abuse Counselor Certification to become a Certified Addiction Recovery Coach (CARC).

Until June 30, 2024, Middlesex Community College is able to offer grant funding for this program for those who are unemployed or underemployed.  If you are interested in grant funding or want to learn more, please e-mail career_training@middlesex.mass.edu.
