Yes, Todd is an Addictions counselor but Advent Recovery is not a counseling service rather we are a coaching service. Recovery coaching is a strength-based system of support for individuals who have an addiction to anything from drugs and alcohol to overeating and self harm. We also support those who want to maintain their recovery or overcome and move forward from a crisis that they have experienced in their lives. We work with the present and make plans for the future. Recovery coaching is not like therapy because coaches do not spend much time on the past, or healing trauma and unlike licensed addiction counselors coaches are not clinicians and do not diagnose or treat mental illness or addiction. Recovery coaches stay in the present and utilize their clients strengths and available tools to assist them in positive directions.
