White Wolf’s main focus is Recovery Coaching

We are not doctors, counsellors or sponsors. Recovery coaching is a form of strengths-based support for people with addictions or in recovery from alcohol, other drugs, codependency, or other addictive behaviors.

We work with people who have active addictions, as well as those already in recovery. Recovery coaches are helpful for making decisions about what to do with one’s life and the part addiction or recovery plays in it. We help clients find ways to stop addiction through abstinence, or reduce harm associated with addictive behaviors. This includes accessing resources for harm reduction, detox, treatment, family support and education, local or online support groups, or helping a client create a change plan to recover on their own.

Recovery coaches do not offer diagnosis or primary treatment for addiction and are not associated with any particular method or means of recovery. We support any positive change, helping people coming home from treatment to avoid relapse, build community support for recovery, or work on life goals not related to addiction such as relationships, work, or education. Recovery coaching is action-oriented with an emphasis on improving present life and reaching future goals.

It is unlike most therapy because coaches do not address the past, do not work to heal trauma, and put little emphasis on feelings. Recovery Coaches are unlike licensed addiction counsellors in that they are non-clinical and do not diagnose or treat addiction or any mental health issues.
