Last night, Kevin & Redneck described the CCAR Recovery Coach Academy at COA to COA's Board members and Directors. This video shows high points, and also gives some valuable insights into working with recoverees.  Some of this will surprise you, some will seem like common sense. But it's all designed to work. There is still space available and until Monday, Jan. 14, the early registration rate will be in effect.

Hurry! Space is limited and once we're full, we will cannot accept additional registrants.
Do You Have These Items?
It's something many people don't think about, but it makes a big difference: toiletries and personal care items for recoverees entering inpatient treatment. Many treatment centers do not provide shampoo, razors, towels and wash cloths, deodorant, toothbrushes & toothpaste, feminine products and other necessary items that we take for granted. Yet recoverees and/or their families are often unable to purchase these products.
Enter COA and its volunteers. Several dedicated moms have begun assembling care bags for recoverees entering treatment. In addition to hygiene and personal care products, the bags include postcards with stamps so recoverees and write to their loved ones, and journals so they can begin recording their thoughts. 
Also...COA is growing! We now have a new office in the Dwier Center for recoveree and family meetings. And we could use some additional lockers or cabinets in which to store COA merchandise, files and other important items.

If you would like to contribute to the care bags or have lockers or cabinets that you would be able to donate, please contact Redneck at
