I took PCA’s Recovery Coaching Training in the Fall of 2016 with Rod Rushing.  Rod has a unique way of delivering very important information in a way for all to understand.  I am currently employed as a recovery coach and wouldn’t be where I am at with out the recovery coach training.  I strongly recommend everyone to take this training.  There is something for all.
