Greetings RCA Graduates and Trained Recovery Coaches –
Here is the follow up information you may need after completing your course.
CRSW: I have loaded all the information pertaining to CRSW credentialing on my website www.nhrecoverycoachacademy.com. Click on CRSW info. The application, study guides, four domain list, etc…are all on that page, as well as the Licensing Board contact info.
Also on NHRecoveryCoachAcademy.com is a complete list of Recovery Centers in NH and a list of Treatment Centers that are funded by the Bureau of Drug & Alcohol Services (BDAS). Click HERE for that website page.
Advocacy: I have forwarded your contact information to New Futures, the NH Advocacy organization for legislation reform. Their website address is www.New-Futures.org. You can peruse the website for bills going in front of the House of Representatives and choose to be a part of advocacy for those. There are a large number of bills being proposed this year.
