We just learned about a few examples of what your health coach might do to help you. They might also help you in other important aspects of your life. For example, how to reconcile with your loved ones after quitting the addiction, how to continue working, and so on.
However, it does not mean that your recovery coach can do literally everything. It's best to understand that there are few things they can't do such as:
- Diagnose addiction. A recovery coach is not entitled to diagnose addiction. It should be done only by doctors or therapist. People who go to a recovery coach comes after getting diagnosed.
- Treat your addiction. A recovery coach is there to walk together with you until you reach your health goals. However, they are not there to treat your addiction.
- Determine your future. Whether or not you can successfully quit addiction is not up to your coach. All decisions are made based on what you choose. They are there to guide you until you realize what you need to decide and what's best for you. They're also there to support and motivate you whenever you start relapsing or losing hopes. Your coach will make sure you are on the right track.
