Roads to Recovery to Host Recovery Coaching Training in April

Roads to Recovery, a service of Aroostook Mental Health Services (AMHC), will be hosting a Recovery Coaching Training from April 21-24, 2020. Roads to Recovery is located at One Water Street in Caribou and is a place where individuals can come and receive support for their recovery journey, connect people to resources, and also serve as a venue for a variety of recovery meetings.

“This training is one of the best I have ever attended,” said Erik Lamoreau, Substance Use Disorder Peer Recovery Center Manager. “I am so pleased we can bring this to Aroostook County and I encourage any person in recovery, an ally of recovery and/or a professional who works with individuals experiencing substance use disorder to participate. You won’t forget it!”

Known as CCAR Recovery Coach Academy, the four-day training is in collaboration with Portland Recovery Community Center. It will be held from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. each day and lunch will be provided. The cost for all four days is $20.00. The training offers professionals 30 CEUs (with the opportunity to attend a follow-up ethics training this summer and earn an additional 16 CEUs).

A limited number of seats are available. Please register by March 31, 2020, at https://weblink.donorperfect.com/rcacaribouapril2020. For more information about the training or Roads to Recovery services, please contact Erik Lamoreau by email at elamoreau@amhc.org or by phone at 207-493-1278.
