The course defines the core responsibilities of the peer recovery support specialist or recovery coach and provides a discussion of key ethical concepts. A model of ethical decision-making is provided for use by recovery coaches and their supervisors, followed by a discussion of several ethical vignettes.

Ethics topics covered include the personal conduct of the recovery coach, conduct in service relationships, conduct in relationships with other service professionals and agencies, and conduct in service relationships with the larger community.

 

The main portion of the course concludes with a sample statement of ethical principles and guidelines for recovery coaches. An addendum identifies the extent to which current laws governing roles in addiction treatment are applicable to recovery coaches and their organizations.

 

This course is based upon material prepared for the Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health and Mental Retardation Services and the Pennsylvania Recovery Organization – Achieving Community Together and is available as an open access article.
