Under contract with the County of Berks, Recovery Coaching Services provides recovery coaching support to both male and female juveniles, who are on probation, through the Juvenile Justice System, for offenses related to drugs and/or alcohol. Each individual is assigned a Certified Recovery Coach. The services and support provided are identical to those provided to the individuals and families of all our recovery coaching clients, including the facilitation of inpatient treatment when necessary, recovery care planning, Family Education Program, Herd By A Horse equine therapy, individual and group sessions, etc.
Our Recovery Coaches work closely with the Juvenile Probation Officer assigned to each individual.
The Berks County Juvenile Probation Department is one of 36 sites nationally to participate in JJ-TRIALS (Juvenile Justice-Translating Research on Interventions for Adolescents in the Legal System). We are honored that, as one of their valued resources, JPO invited Recovery Coaching Services to jointly participate in this study. Over the course of two years, the team is working with Temple University. This is a collaborative initiative with the overall goal of reducing the unmet substance abuse related needs of justice involved youth. The particular focus of this initiative is to improve our shared understanding of how best to help organizations successfully adopt and sustain research-based best practices in substance abuse treatment, prevention, and related behavioral health problems.
