Cornerstone’s Recovery Coaching Program
Maintaining sobriety requires dedication, motivation, and a quality support system, you can get all this through Cornerstone’s recovery coaching program. Many patients build their sober support network during the substance abuse treatment process at a residential or intensive outpatient program, and it is crucial to maintain that support system as they transition back into their outside lives. Recovery coaching provides patients with a unique opportunity to continue a professional level of supportive care, while being completely active in their day to day lives.
Cornerstone Healing Center’s Recovery Coaching Program
Cornerstone’s recovery coaching program, known as the Navigation Program, is available to clients during all levels of care to continue their efforts after treatment.
At this point, you may be asking yourself, “what is recovery coaching?”This program gives patients meaningful support as they navigate the beginnings of their recovery.
Navigators help these individuals put the skills and habits they’ve developed in treatment to use in their daily lives. This includes things like grocery shopping, meal planning, budgeting, scheduling meetings, job interview skills, fun activities, and more.
Clients participating in the Navigation Program can expect to see a consistent improvement in their lives, throughout the formative first year of sobriety, as they begin to set and pursue the short and long-term goals they want to achieve.
We understand that no two situations are the same; therefore our Navigation Program is completely customized and tailored to the individual, taking into account their personal circumstances, goals, and life experiences to ensure that our recovery coaching program can help you or your loved one conquer their addiction problem.

- Getting a Job or Returning to Work: Many individuals complete treatment knowing that the next step will include finding or returning to work, and whatever your circumstance, we are here to help.
- Dealing with Legal Issues: Often those who have struggled with substance abuse find themselves with some form of legal obligations. While it can be overwhelming, we look to take these on one step at a time, and can support you in managing the road ahead.
- Achieving Financial Stability: Most people have financial goals. By understanding and examining these goals we can create financial understanding and a budget that will help you to achieve monetary stability.
