Marshfield Clinic Health System AmeriCorps Recovery Corps
Our Recovery Corps program is the first of its kind in Wisconsin that trains individuals to become recovery coaches. Members undergo training in the Connecticut Community for Addiction Recovery (CCAR) model of recovery coaching and serve as recovery coaches. Recovery coaches support those affected by their own or someone else’s substance use through one-on-one contact, outreach phone calls, and community education. These members tackle the ever-growing issue of substance use at law enforcement agencies, county jails, public health departments, social service departments, health care organizations, nonprofits, local coalitions, and other government agencies. By reducing substance use, Recovery Corps members are helping to build healthier communities.
