What is a Recovery Specialist? "Recovery Specialist" is a broader term for an individual who provides one on one client and family services within a treatment setting and/or client’s home community or travel. Recovery Specialists work with clients - and their families - who suffer from  addiction or mental health issues.

There is no standard definition for a recovery specialist - common titles for the role of the Recovery Specialist may include: Sober Coach, Sober Companion, Personal Recovery Assistant, Mentor, Case Manager.

What is I.R.I Recovery Specialist Training?  Because this is an unregulated area, there is no standard national or international accreditation, governing body or code of conduct for Recover Specialists. And this is why it is crucial that the highest standards of training are provided and maintained to ensure that clients are looked after in the best possible way, and that the recovery specialists have the tools to look after themselves and find support from other professionals. Globally recognised as a leader in the field of recover, International Recovery Institute provides the highest level of excellence, beginning with a thorough theoretical foundation, established the highest standards of ethical practice, teaches practical skills, procedure and protocols to achieve measurable outcomes.
