What is a Recovery Coach?

A Recovery Coach is a person who helps remove personal and environmental obstacles to recovery, links the newly recovering person to the recovering community, and serves as a personal guide and mentor in the management of personal and family recovery.  -William White


A Recovery Coach is a guide, a mentor, a motivator, a role model, a problem solver, and a means of support. A Recovery Coach is NOT a counselor, a sponsor, a therapist, or a physician. As an IUPUI student, former student, or prospective student - meeting with a recovery coach might help keep you on track with your recovery, give you ideas or motivation, or simply help connect you to our growing social community.
