Our Mission Statement
The I.D.E.A.L. Recovery Coaching (‘IRC’) mission is:
1) to provide recovery support, fellowship, encouragement and hope to lawyers and other professionals whose lives are affected by addiction and who seek restorative healing and long-term wellbeing;
2) to advance, promote and deliver strengths-based and values-based personal and group coaching to anyone seeking whole person restoration from substance use, abuse or addiction;
3) to partner with and support recovery communities and related organizations to increase awareness, knowledge and understanding of evolving issues relevant to addiction and recovery; and
4) to end the stigma directed at those in the shadows of the addictive struggle so they may enter into the sunlight of recovery and lead complete, productive and fulfilling lives.
Our Vision & Value Statement
The IRC vision views all persons as dignified, valued and capable members of our shared communities– persons possessed of inherent strengths, competencies and resiliencies they can draw upon to enhance their recovery efforts and achieve long-term well-being.
Honoring each person’s complete life history, IRC delivers personal and confidential recovery support to enhance individual strengths, competencies and resiliencies to promote restoration, harmony and success in all areas of one’s life.
IRC’s strength’s-based orientation incorporates a service philosophy that cultivates self-awareness, personal empowerment and the expansion of choice and direction.
