CMSA Abstract – Recovery Coaching in Care Management


According to CCAR (Connecticut Community for Addiction Recovery) “A recovery coach is anyone interested in promoting recovery by removing barriers and obstacles to recovery, and by serving as a personal guide and mentor for people seeking or in recovery.”

Four goals of the recovery coach are: (according to William White, prolific writer on recovery coaching)

  • Promote recovery
  • Remove barriers
  • Connect people with recovery support services
  • Encourage hope, optimism and healthy living

Peers are uniquely positioned to deliver this service in non-judgmental and effective ways that produce positive and lasting results. Integrating recovery coaching into care management teams, specifically in the health insurance setting is unique to AllWays Health Partners. We are the only health plan to offer this support to our members. There is no cost associated with this. The only requirement is a willingness to talk about one’s interest in seeking recovery, however the person defines this.
