Today we have Jesse Heffernan back on the show for an exclusive live Q&A with SRC Members! Jesse was first with us in the episode, Changing the Way We Talk About Recovery. He has since expanded into recovery coaching, recovery coach training, and recovery support services that help individuals and organizations create the grassroots recovery resources so direly needed in communities right now.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve been clean for decades or less than a year. Jesse answers all questions about recovery advocacy and tells us exactly how to get into the recovery movement based on what we like to do and what we’re good at.
Become a volunteer advocate or make a career as a recovery coach. Start your own Recovery Community Organization (RCO). Get ready to explore your exciting place in today’s recovery movement!
