Recovery Coaching



Live Online Group Class

page2-img1The Certified Recovery Coach course was created by Barbara Wainwright and Joe Drews in 2009 and has been recently updated by Jon Wainwright in 2017. Joe Drews comes from a strong recovery background and has worked with many recovery institutions and organizations. Both Barbara and Joe know the ins and outs of the recovery process and just how daunting that can be. WGI’s Certified Recovery Coach Course has already helped many of our graduates be successful in the recovery community. It is well known that every year billions of dollars are spent on recovery from an addiction of some sort, which has created more and more costly solutions to an age-old problem.

This course provides not only the knowledge to handle the addict, wounded family members and friends, in addition, it provides knowledge on how to understand the recovery community. You no longer have to have suffered from an addiction to help someone in need of recovery, you just need to understand the disease. WGI’s Certified Recovery Coach course covers all addictions, including Co-Dependency. WGI’s Certified Recovery Coach course is conducted by Certified Master Coach Jon Wainwright who with his vast knowledge of recovery, has brought his personal insight and personality to the course. He shares insightful tips and draws from his own personal experiences. Being a recovered addict himself, his personal philosophy is: “There’s always hope, once an addict is ready to change.”

WGI courses are led by experienced Master Coaches who have been selected for their professional expertise, passion for the coaching profession and genuine commitment to every student’s success.

Enrollment in the course is limited to ten students so each person has optimal attention from the Master Coach.

You will learn the Wainwright Method of Coaching and will begin changing lives before you even leave the class!
