Anchor offers regular trainings for those looking to further their development as a peer recovery specialist and in other areas of recovery education.

Recovery Coaching Academy


The Anchor Recovery Community Center ‘Recovery Coach Academy’ has been a long-standing leader in equipping individuals with the skills and competency needed to become a Certified Peer Recovery Specialist. Anchor has trained hundreds of individuals in Rhode Island, many of whom are the leading recovery specialists in the state.


Our training academy is based on the curriculum from the Connecticut Community for Addiction Recovery (CCAR), a neighboring leader in peer recovery training. The CCAR model for peer recovery training is an evidence-based and time-tested model for offering peer support. This model is designed to provide an up-to-date approach to helping those in recovery from addiction.


Anchor Recovery Community Center has shared its sought after model with communities nationwide to help others effectively provide peer recovery support.
