At Bicycle Health, we offer many forms of recovery coaching to help enhance the treatment and recovery process and provide much-needed support to those who need it.

What is Recovery Coaching?

Recovery coaching is a form of support for individuals who are in recovery from substance use disorder. 

Recovery coaches are trained professionals who provide guidance, support, and encouragement to individuals as they navigate recovery challenges. 

They help individuals set and achieve goals, develop healthy coping strategies, remove barriers, and establish a strong support network.

Why Do We Offer Recovery Coaching?

At Bicycle Health, we offer recovery coaching because we understand that substance use disorder is a complex and challenging condition that requires ongoing support and care. 

Our recovery coaches are here to help our patients stay motivated, avoid return to use and build a fulfilling life in recovery. They can also help our patients find resources and services to aid their recovery journey, removing barriers to quality care.

Recovery Coaching Services Offered at Bicycle Health

We offer many different forms of recovery coaching services, including support groups, individual coaching, chat sessions and beyond.

Support Groups

At Bicycle Health, you can take advantage of four main types of support groups, including:

  1. General Meetups: Open discussion groups that provide a safe place for patients to share struggles and barriers and receive support and guidance from the recovery coach and peers. 
  2. Community: Open discussion groups for specialized communities, such as Parents, Early Recovery and LGBTQ+ communities. 
  3. Activity: Support groups that focus on doing an activity together, such as journaling, fun group and book club.
  4. Educational: Groups that involve learning structured material presented by a therapist

Individual Coaching

Individual coaching is a peer-based approach to goal-setting, motivation and accountability that focuses on:

  • Return-to-use prevention
  • Emotional support 
  • Problem-solving 
  • Long-term planning 
  • Communication
  •  Advocacy

Chat Sessions

Chat sessions are a great way to stay connected and receive support quickly and efficiently. Recovery coaching chat sessions offer support for people in recovery, focusing on accountability, motivation and setting goals.

Much like the other forms of support, these sessions emphasize advocacy, communication, planning, problem-solving and emotional support. Individuals can utilize these chat sessions to learn and develop new coping strategies and build a strong support network.

The Dyad Care Model

The Dyad Model is a comprehensive approach that strives to involve all patients in wraparound services to assist them in achieving lasting recovery.

Wraparound services help address people’s co-occurring issues and needs, such as medical care, mental health treatment, vocational services, housing needs and more.

The goal is to enhance patient satisfaction, retention, and outcomes by providing constant support from a recovery coach.

Adopting a more comprehensive approach that includes wraparound services improves treatment outcomes and increases the chances of sustained recovery.

Recovery Coaching is a Vital Component of Recovery

Substance use disorder is a complex, multifaceted, and challenging condition that requires ongoing support and care. 

Recovery coaching effectively provides that support by helping individuals set and achieve goals, develop healthy coping strategies, remove barriers, and establish a strong support network.
