RBA's Recovery Employment Coaches work to provide your employees with the confidential support they need to navigate substance use and work-related issues, access treatment and other local resources, and support to ensure recovery and success in the workplace.

Recovery Employment Coaches provide:
Emotional support -Every coaching session starts from a place of emotional support. The purpose of a coach is to provide a supportive, non-judgement and neutral sounding board, help employees to find balance, and empower them to build emotional resilience.
Stress management - As individuals in recovery who have been there and understand, recovery coaches know first-hand the acute stress associated with addiction and resulting behavioral health issues. They can help employees build and practice critical life skills that result in positive changes in their work creativity and productivity.
Goal setting and actionable accountability - Coaches work collaboratively with employees to help them form clear, actionable goals and plans to move their life and work in a positive direction. They guide them to an understanding of what they can and cannot control, and clear their path forward.
