CCB Announces Two New Certifications CARC II and CRCS

Wallingford, CT Since 2007, the Connecticut Certification Board (CCB) has been actively working with a diverse group of recovery community stakeholders with expertise in recovery coaching to develop a new certification - the Certified Addiction Recovery Coach (CARC). Launched in April 2012, the CARC certification is now held by over 150 recovery coaches internationally and is being offered in four US states: Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York and Vermont as well as in Europe and South Africa through the ERCCB - European Recovery Coach Certification Board (

In collaboration with numerous partners, the CCB is now actively developing two new certifications: CARC II and CRCS in order to effectively meet the needs of the rapidly evolving practice of recovery coaching.

The Certified Addiction Recovery Coach II (CARC II) will be intended for addiction recovery coaches that have actively worked with recoverees for at least 1 year, have obtained advanced training in recovery coaching and meet established standards for the new CARC II certification.

The Certified Recovery Coach Supervisor (CRCS) will be designed for experienced recovery coaches providing mentorship and supervision to other recovery coaches in various settings. Interested candidates will be required to demonstrate their competency in recovery coaching practice, supervision and mentorship of coaches, ethical responsibilities as well as recovery capacity building within organizations, communities and systems.

The Role Delineation and Job Task Analyses for the new certifications will be internationally validated in February of 2013 and the new certifications are expected to be available in April 2013. If you have recovery coaching expertise and are interested in supporting the development of these new certifications by participating as a subject matter expert, please contact Marshall Rosier by email at or by contacting the CCB office.
