I worked directly with the client population. I would facilitate 8-10 groups a week. I would attempt to block clients from leaving, by way of AMA. I would have sessions with a client, if they should have an urgency, that needed addressing, immediately but their therapist wasn’t available. As a Recocery Coach, I would make the therapist aware of many issues that wasn’t discussed at their 1:1 meeting.

I worked directly with the client population. These clients are new in the first stage of their journey, to recovery. If

clients have court dates, that they wouldn’t be able to appear due, to them being an in-patient, I would direct the

letter to the Judge, Lawyer or Probation Officer. This will allow them to be aware of the

reasoning behind the client not being present. There were times I would escort a client to their court dates. I also

facilitate orientation groups for the new admits.
