Need some extra support in your recovery?
COA Recovery Coaches can help.
Trained and certified by COA with the CCAR Recovery Coach curriculum, Recovery Coaches serve as personal guides and mentors to people seeking or already in long term recovery. Coaches remove barriers & obstacles to recovery by connecting recoverees with resources, developing personalized wellness plans, monitoring progress and providing lots of encouragement. They act as a compliment to counseling, 12-Step programs, spiritual pursuits, community activities and other recovery support systems.
In addition to the Recovery Coach certification, many of the COA Recovery Coaches have training and expertise in healthcare, wellness, personal finance, spirituality and other essential life skills areas. They may also provide other services to the recovery community. Some offer coaching services to COA clients on a pro bono basis, others charge for their time. Coaching sessions may be conducted in person or remotely (phone/email/Skype). Please contact each coach you are interested in working with for further details.

Diane Nickerson is a person in long term recovery. “I’m 56 yrs old,” she says. “I’ve struggled with addiction my entire life. In my early thirties I was in 2 car accidents that led to addiction to pain meds and then heroin. I had a very bad heroin addiction that lasted 12 years and cost me everything. I had to rebuild my life from nothing. I have a strong foundation in both AA and Christ Centered Recovery. I started in Recovery and Prison Ministry a little over 9 yrs ago and since that time have met and worked with many women facing the challenges I once faced. Over the years I’ve acquired a great network of resources and contacts to help with the issues that arise in early and ongoing recovery. I am a women’s leader with Christian Life Prison and Recovery Ministries and also serve with The House of Adonai Ministries in Philadelphia helping them to open The Redemption House for Women in Kensington where I am a Life Coach. You tell me where you want to get to in your recovery and together we can come up with a plan! I will provide you with the resources and encouragement, so you and God can do the work. I can meet with you at City of Angels or come to your location.” To contact Diane, call 267-338-5131.
