Types of Coaching

Harbor’s recovery coaches can go beyond the basic training to specialize in the following areas.

Relationship Coaching
Whether one or both members of a relationship have been affected by addiction, couples often need help moving forward. Our relationship coaches have been trained not only in coaching, but also in couples therapy. We help couples define what they want in a relationship and develop a plan for getting there.  

Family Coaching
Families often have been traumatized as a result of addiction and aren’t sure what to do to help themselves and their loved ones. Sometimes, families need help getting their loved one into treatment, knowing how to help the family heal, or preparing for living with a newly recovered loved one. 

Parenting Coaching
Parenting can be very challenging, particularly if you or your child have been ensnared in addiction. Coaching can help you identify areas you’d like to strengthen and develop skills that would help you and your child have a better relationship. 

Re-entry Coaching
There are a number of obstacles that make the recidivism rate for those returning home from prison pretty high. A recovery coach can help you navigate those obstacles, including the basics like finding employment, housing, and transportation. Your recovery coach can also help you map a pathway to not only freedom, but a life worth living. 

Adolescent and Teen Coaching
Being a teen can be hard. Having a coach can help make sense of life. They can help with everything from skill-building, problem-solving, and brainstorming to more complex situations like helping you sort through emotions and getting a handle on the frustrations and difficulties of simply being human.

The advanced training can be highly useful in helping clients navigate systems such as probation and parole or DCFS as well as life situations such as marriage, raising a family, or living with substance use or mental illness.

A recovery coach can assist you as much or as little as you want. If you prefer to do things yourself, a recovery coach can help you stay on track, answer your questions, and fill more of a support role. If you are looking for a hands-on approach, your recovery coach can be more involved. As you collaborate with your coach, you’ll find what works best for you to help you live a vital, meaningful life of your choosing.
