Facility and Service Consulting and Training:

International Recovery Institute (IRI) provides consultation and training to facilities and services on the theoretical basis, ethical standards, and practical skills required by frontline Recovery Specialists and Peer Recovery Specialists. The initial process is one of collaborative consultation during which the specific needs are identified and a tailored training curriculum is developed.
The focus is addiction, dual-diagnosis, mental illness, process addictions, and/or collaborative care, depending on your organization’s needs and encompasses the core principles and philosophy of long-term, intergenerational, individual and family recovery and healing.
A primary goal is to change the prevailing paradigm of addiction and mental illness, providing a new language that removes blame, shame, guilt and stigma, changing the perspective on the condition and the role and relevance of families.

I have been to millions of training's since I started in this field over 30 years ago and I can't remember many that were as interesting, well presented and valuable as this. Thank you so much and I look forward to Level two. It is a pleasure to be with such smart, personable and fun women.

This training is a critical depth of knowledge that needs to be enforced by any person/company providing individual client services. The information and correlation of application is unlike any other I have trained or certified in 20 years experience. The individual parts are imperative but showing the purpose and marriage of them for the service of the client is incredible.

SUDC, Recovery Specialist
I am actively working as a Recovery Specialist. I was thrilled and excited by the quality, depth and breadth of the course. I would tell anyone I love to trust them with the life of someone they love! They have changed the business, set new standards and put the bar for Recovery Coaching where it needs to be. If you hire a Recovery Specialist you need to know if they are trained by IRI!
