 GAAMHA RECOVERY COACHING

 

 

GAAMHA offers Recovery Coaching that is available, accessible, and affordable to people in North Central Massachusetts who have been diagnosed with a substance use disorder. Recovery Coaching is a covered service available through most MassHealth plans, and members are eligible to receive these services.

 

For individuals with private/commercial plans and the uninsured, we offer a low cost private pay rate so that anyone can access this service.

Recovery coaching is accessible for individuals 15 and older, and can be an effective early intervention and prevention tool for young people starting to experience trouble as a result of their substance use. 

Our coaches are all trained peer specialists who embrace a philosophy that welcomes all methods of recovery, and work to develop wellness plans that reflect the needs of the individual Participant. For some people this may mean complete abstinence, for another it may combine MAT and therapy, and yet some people may just be exploring how to reduce their substance use to mitigate the negative impact it is having on them and their loved ones.
