What is their main objective?

What are the benefits of becoming one?

A CARC, or a Certified Addiction Recovery Coach, is someone who has been acknowledged by the NYCB as someone who has the knowledge and capability of promoting recovery in someone who suffers with addiction. This is a New York certification.

Their main objective is to identify obstacles, problems, and barriers to recovery, remove the barriers, be a problem-solver, and to connect the recoveree to recovery-oriented services and resources.

The benefits stem from those of becoming a Recovery Coach, (to see the benefits of becoming one, click here)

But also, this certification is flexible because you can choose to be employed or self-employed. This certification does not require you to have a higher-up and is not heavy and rigorous in workload.

And of course, having a certification expands your portfolio and is tangible proof of knowledge and competency.
