Hello Recovery Friends and New Visitors,
I have a *SPECIAL* Guest I wanted to Feature on my Recovery Blog today. Please meet Melissa of http://www.MKRecoveryCoaching.com …..
When I first entered treatment for addicted compulsive gambling, I never heard or had any idea there was such a service by a Recovery Coach. Years later now, I see on blogs and websites of many types of coaching being offered. So I thought it would be a good idea to Spotlight what a Recovery Coach does, and how they can help others be successful in recovery. But Melissa’s service goes a little beyond just Recovery, and is why she is UNIQUE in what she offers her clients. So here is a little about Melissa….
Melissa Killeen, MSOD, MPhil, is an established executive coach with broad understanding of entrepreneurial businesses. Her unique specialty is working with the recovering entrepreneur or business person. Melissa has more than 15 years experience in personal recovery as well as 35 years as a small business owner and in executive leadership.
Her goal is to have her clients experience a blend of recovery and executive tools through coaching. Every client wants to form the fruitful interpersonal relationships that are needed to maintain long term sobriety and life success. Melissa guides them towards this goal. She encourages executives to maintain critical business relationships by retraining them in communicating the ‘right’ messages. Through various assessments she informs a client on how to deal with difficult people in a sober manner. She helps them build both business and people strategies to optimize their businesses’ performance. She encourages new skills to develop intimacy. Often Family Recovery Coaches are introduced into the process to guide the family in working through the challenges of living with an addict and accepting the changes sobriety brings forth.
Melissa Killeen is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania in Organizational Dynamics focusing on Executive Coaching and Leadership Management. Melissa has been President and executive board member of Recovery Coaches International, an international association of recovery coaches. In addition, she is certified Master Trainer of theLIFO® assessment survey. The LIFO® system is owned by Business Consultants, Inc. (BCon), the largest consulting firm in Japan specializing in large-scale selection and development systems. She integrates the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT/Tapping) and Matrix Re-imprinting into her practice, bringing her clients a wide range of drug free recovery resources. Watch for the launch of her new book RECOVERY COACHING-A Guide to Coaching People in Recovery from Addiction, scheduled to be released September, 2013.

With a Recovery Coach All Things are Possible…
A RECOVERY COACH can significantly reduce the chances of relapse by working with the recovering client immediately after treatment or at anytime in their recovery.
- 80% of all addicts relapse within the 90 days of leaving a treatment center.
- The first 30 days following discharge is the window of greatest vulnerability for relapse after treatment, when approximately 30% of the discharged population will slip at least once.
- Between 25-35% of people who complete addiction treatment will be readmitted to treatment within one year, and 50% will be readmitted within five years.
- Recovery coaching is one of the most effective tools in sustaining long-term recovery.
- Recovery Coaching has many names: recovery support specialist, sober companion, sober coach, addiction coach, accountability partner, quit coach, addiction recovery coach, personal recovery assistant, peer recovery specialist, sober mentor or recovery coach. So, no matter what monicker, remember….
- With a Recovery Coach, a strong, meaningful sober lifestyle is possible. With proper guidance you can become much more than you once were. Coaching is about much more than just sobriety, it’s about showing you all the wonderful possibilities in your life. It’s about making positive decisions about what you truly want to do with your new life. It’s about removing the blinders that your addictions have gradually built around your vision. It’s about becoming that person that you secretly dreamed about
