Would you like to be part of the solution?

We invite you to join Pocket Rehab Coaching Network to become an Internationally certified "Peer Recovery Specialist " and increase your recovery capital.

Come and join the Global Network of Professional Recovery Coaches (GWEN) and get an accredited Training through the "International Coaching Register".

Training is aimed at individuals and groups that are interested in understanding how a coaching intervention can be effectively used to assist individuals, families, communities, and organizations that are challenged with substance abuse and addictive behaviour disorders.  

By supporting people in a practical and forward-focused way, we are able to move into a solutions-based space which is empowering and proactive.

And to aid in supporting people as they move from a Culture of Addiction to a Culture of Recovery.

Peer Recovery Specialists are trained to support individuals and families that are challenged with substance abuse and addictive behavior disorders. 
The Peer Recovery Specialist training will teach you how to:
  • Have a coaching conversation to aid in assisting your clients to empower themselves in their personal recovery.
  • Implement the Systemic Coaching Model to support those who need help within their families, organizations and communities.
  • Assist and support in the development of personal Recovery Capital, which are the internal and external resources developed and acquired to support sustainable recovery. 
  • Peer Specialists will also have the opportunity to assist individuals on the Pocket Rehab real-time app.

  • Make a lasting contribution to people's lives, including your own.
