We must be united in the war against addiction! My mission is to unite organizations,support groups, and everyone else who needs a helping hand. I am here to educate equip and develop a Recovery resource Network. My hope is that everyone gets the help they need and no one is left behind or alone in their fight for freedom from addiction. Join me and lets fight the good fight! Our Philosophy: Instigate, Agitate, Educate, and Liberate!
Recovery Specialists provide a foundation for recovery self-efficacy to be created through improving the relapse response (hijacking effect) within the brain through cognitive apprenticeship, modeling, mentoring, ecological momentary intervention, and inspiring, educating and repeated success. Combining this with cutting edge family theory and a focus on healing and recovery of not only the individual but the family as whole is the basis of the IRI training.

Developed by Dr. Judith Landau and Nanette Zumwalt, this course has quickly become recognized as a remarkable certificate training for any individual working one-to-one with client's and their families in program settings as well.
“A MUST HAVE educational course for individuals working, or interested in the work of, 'Recovery Specialist' e.g. Personal Recovery Assistant, Sober Companion, Sober Coach, etc.”
The instruction delivers detailed and specific information so that each participant may acquire the knowledge to further develop his/her individual skill set and understanding of the importance of professional collaboration, ongoing assessment, emergency action, strength based approaches and goal specific, measurable Recovery Planning with clients and their families.
The IRI Certified Recovery Specialist, Level 1 Training recently given in Long Beach, California was informative, insightful, creatively delivered, thought provoking and altogether enjoyable. As a viable component of addiction treatment the curriculum focuses on, where have come from historically, challenges our current knowledge and methodologies but, most importantly the direction we are going towards legitimacy and valorization. As a seasoned professional in the field of 15 years, we are long overdue for an ethical industry standard of this caliber to be set and available to those of us with vast experience or newly entering the field. Empowering us to approach this profession with confidence in a continuum of care that would be an asset to any client and or clinical team at any level of treatment. The balance of history, theory, cooperation, definition, practicality, legalities, ethical behaviors and self regulation within this curriculum was seamlessly melded together through our instructors vast experiential knowledge. After completing the Level 1 Training, it is my opinion that anyone interested in, working as, working with or simply understanding the valuable resource of a Recovery Specialist can benefit from the training offered by IRI. With that, a fond thank you for the time, energy and forward thinking required to compile such an educational body of work. Truly I am looking forward to enrolling in the Advanced Levels and Specialties education to come." - Robert G Wells, Recovery Specialist
