What I Do As a Recovery Coach

When it comes to addiction, no one ever chooses to become addicted nor are they ever prepared.

When it comes to addiction, no one ever chooses to become addicted nor are they ever prepared (not even family members or loved ones of the addicted individual). Unfortunately, for the person who acquires an addiction (especially substance abuse), its usually too late before the addicted individual falls victim to mounting legal, medical and personal property bills – Click Here for infographic/”Cost of Addiction”, not to say what addiction does to personal relationships (marriage, family, friendships). In fact, in 2009 there was a staggering 23.5 million people ages 12 or older who needed treatment for illicit drug or alcohol abuse.

Of these 2.6 million, a little over 10% received any type of treatment – Click Here for infographic/”Substance Abuse Statistics”. What’s even more staggering is that up to 80% of the people in recovery will relapse within the first year. Unfortunately, by the time the addicted individual does turn for help (treatment/recovery), it is usually too late, and it is mandated by the court system where treatment is institutional, bureaucratic, judgmental and “cold”, leaving a bad impression for any and all treatment and recovery modalities (Therapy, Coaching, Counseling, Medical Care) for the addicted individual.

I Recovery Coach my clients from a non-bias, non-judgmental perspective and do not establish authority based relationships but relationships based on mutual respect, collaboration, and anonymity. Every client that I have taken through recovery coaching has gone through or is going through Life’s Obstacles, barriers, and sticking points. The way that I Recovery Coach is I use well planned out, fun, relaxed, insightful assessment tools and conversation coaching and treat the client as an equal and not as an authority putting you the client in the “Drivers Seat” and me in the “Passenger Seat”, whereby as a “team” we look straight ahead through the windshield and do NOT look back in the rearview mirror I believe that people who are challenged with an addiction and going through recovery or have gone through recovery need to move “Beyond Recovery” by moving forward with a meaningful, useful, purposeful and productive life, and move from Recovery to Discovery through Self Awareness with a Recovery Coach.

As a trained Recovery Coach I like implement and utilize the Genesis Recovery Process which consist of 1.) an integration of Spiritually Based precepts for personal change 2.) Cognitive Therapy Principles 3.) Relapse Prevention and 4.) the latest Neurochemical research related to human behavior. The Genesis Process recognizes that a person’s behavior is the expression of beliefs, so along with focusing on destructive behaviors, Genesis also concentrates on personal change. Over the past 30 years 70-80% of Genesis counseling graduates throughout the United States have been able to achieve and maintain recovery.

The Genesis Recovery Process

The Genesis Recovery Process is not a self help program

The Genesis Recovery Process is not a self help program, but a program that uses the insight of a trained Genesis counselor (such as myself: James Egidio) that will address the client’s subconscious relapse patterns and help create a personal relapse prevention treatment plan that can truly prevent relapse. There are 4 main requirements in order to succeed with the Genesis Process and they are 1.) That you are MOTIVATED for “REAL CHANGE” 2.) That you have abstained from the use of drugs/alcohol for a minimum of 3-6 months and 3.) To benefit and succeed with the Genesis Process you will need to be willing to be very honest with yourself and others. In each process, you and your Genesis counselor will review an introductory process and you will be held accountable to do worksheets. 4.) You commit to complete all of the 10 Genesis Processes in approximately 20 weeks give or take depending on your personal schedule with work, school family and etc.

People who genuinely do the Genesis Process have found amazing results. Not only have the prevented the pain of future relapses, but they gain new awareness and insight of how they can prevent the pain of future relapses. They learn about the coping skills that will allow them to resist compulsive behaviors that cause relapse. The Genesis Process also works well with other behavior addictions and recovery such as Sex/Pornography Addiction, Compulsive Eating, Gambling Addiction, Co-Dependency Compulsive Spending and Shopping as well as Social Media Addiction and Gaming Addictions.
